Cunninghams from NC and Rusk Co TX
I'm seeking info on my Cunninghams who were from York Co SC and Mecklenburg Co NC. They are a white family. I'm not yet sure where they came from prior to those locations. It could have been from VA or PA. I'm still fairly new in studying this branch of my family. My primary concern right now is my great great grandfather, William Kendrick Cunningham born 1822 Mecklenburg Co NC. His mother was Sarah (Sallie) Jane Kendrick born 1803 York Co SC. His parents married in Mecklenburg Co NC, not sure of the date. Mecklenburg records were destroyed by fire about that time. I do not know William Kendrick Cunningham's father's name yet but a relative said he was born 1795 in SC. I've hit a wall trying to find his father. Anyone related to Cunninghams in NC, MO or Rusk Co TX, I'd love to hear from you. There were various Cunninghams who migrated to Texas around 1860 but I'm only related to the family who moved to Rusk Co TX in 1860. Thank you and let me know if I can help you with anything related to Cunninghams. I do have some info on this family I can share. I know some moved to MO, AR, TN and possibly MS and AL. Here are some names from Roane Co TN 1850 that are related. Stephen S Cunningham, born abt 1825, who married Sarah Elizabeth Day in Roane Co TN. There was also a Jonas Cunningham born 1830, living with this family in 1850 Roane Co TN. Stephen and Sarah Day Cunningham moved to Rusk Co TX by 1860. She died and he remarried a Nancy Carter in Rusk Co TX.
