WHO WERE RICHARD DUNHAM's three wives??
- 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
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.
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
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.
