  • Notes 
    • Birth: 1790, USA
      Death: 1850
      Wilson County
      Tennessee, USA

      In honor and of the memory of my 5th Great Grandfather William Dunn. William married my 5th Great Grandmother Elizabeth Bradley, on December 11, 1810, Lebanon, Wilson County, Tennessee. I wish I knew more about him, but maybe in time.

      I can find only three children of William and Elizabeth:

      William Dunn (1810 - 1880)
      Thomas B. Dunn (1811 - 1900)
      Mary "Pollie" Dunn (1819-1890), my 4th Great Grandmother, (Find A Grave Memorial# 8867973) who married James "Jim" George.

      I found my third Great Uncle, William Henry George (Find A Grave Memorial# 143095248), the son of my 4th Great Grandparents, James and Mary "Pollie" Dunn-George, in the 1890 Veterans census in Trousdale County. He must have moved back before the 1920's when he filled out his questionnaire. That part of Tennessee where he lived started off as part of Sumner County, then part of Smith County, then part of Warren County and finally Dekalb County.

      For question #43 & #44 regarding ancestry, William answered:

      "{Mother's name} Mary Dunn {Mother's parents} William Dunn; Elizabeth Dunn." William Henry went on to say, "My Grandfather William Dunn was in the War of 1812, Butler County, {Alabama?} and I think he was in some of the Indian engagements."

      I have no specific death date or any burial location for William.

      This may be with same William Dunn of the War of 1812; Corporal, 13th Regiment of the Kentucky Militia.
