I put together a listing (in alpha order) of Dunhams who were married in VA & WV from 1794-1904. Would if be helpful to anyone if I posted it here?

I did this for another family name and didn't hear from anyone so, before I do it again, I'd rather know someone can use it.

Friend Dunham Dora Wright 21 May 1895 Wetzel WV
From your board the above are my great, grandfather and great grandmother. They had two children Elmer and Elzie Dunham. Elzie and Winona May Dunham were my grandparents. My mother, Evelyn Dunham Maxwell had these siblings..all Dunhams. Raymond, Harold, Berneda and Arthor. All have passed except my mother who is 77 years old, today. Aunt Berneda married a Yates. They had Janie, Georgie (who was blind after the age of 15) and Sherry. I believe all have passed. If any of these match anyone please contact me.

Hi Christine,

I have a Friend Dunham in my family tree but didn't have a spouse or children. I wonder if it's the same one.

"My" Friend Dunham was born in 1869 and his parents were George D. Dunham and Susannah ?

Do you have the names of "your" Friend Dunham's parents?

Hi again, thanks so much for posting the info. I had two of the names in my tree so I was able to connect the dots with your info.

BTW, we're 4th cousins, LOL.

Do you have George Dunham's (father of Friend) family info? I do, as far back as George's grandparents. If you need it, please let me know.

Oh, yes!
Please send the detail to me!
How wonderful, you are saving me a lot of time.
My dear 77 year old mother, your great aunt right, is going to be elated. She did not know much about her father he had left home by the time she was 16. All I remember of him is seeing him in a casket when I was 4 years old! Are you in W Va? I am in Ohio. Oh, I have so many questions. Again, thank you, thank you!

Your Cousin ;->
