      RICHARD DUNHAM, born Feb 14, 1795, died Jan 8, 1874, in Jackson County,
      AL, was possibly married three times. The wife I am most interested in
      is an Elizabeth, maiden name unknown, who was possibly his second
      wife. Elizabeth died before 1850, as he married Sarah ??? before 1850
      census.
      RICHARD DUNHAM appears on the 1830, 1840, 1850, 1860, and 1870 censuses
      of Jackson Co, AL. Richard's parents were Henry Dunham and Elizabeth
      (Medlin) Dunham; they died in Wake Co, NC circa 1820. Richard had a
      brother named Medlin Dunham who also lived in Jackson County. Henry
      Dunham was the son of Joseph and Mary (Claypool) Dunham of Frederick, VA.
      TWO QUESTIONS:
      1. What was maiden name of Elizabeth Dunham, born circa 1795-1800, who
      married Richard Dunham circa 1819?
      2. Richard and Elizabeth Dunham's second child was Nancy Matilda
      Dunham, born circa 1824. Nancy married (1) a Coburn/Cobern, given name
      unknown.
      Does anyone know if he was related to Isaac Coburn who charged goods at
      David Larkin and E. H. Dillard's mercantile store in the late 1840s?
      Nancy (Dunham) Coburn married (2nd) James McLemore on January 22, 1856,
      as his second wife.
      The McLemores lived between near Mink Creek. Some of the Dunhams lived
      in the same area and some lived in Dry Cove near Guffey Hollow.
      After James McLemore's death in March 1870, Nancy (Dunham) Coburn
      McLemore moved to Dry Cove and lived near the Guffeys.
      IF ANYONE HAS ANY INFORMATION ON NANCY DUNHAM COBURN McLEMORE, her
      parents, Richard and Elizabeth Dunham, or her second husband, James
      McLemore, please share with me.
