In Reply to: CUNNINGHAMS in Tennessee by Bev of 9498

In 'Tennessee Marriages, 1851-1900' by Jordan R. Dodd, there is listed a J.W. Cunningham with spouse S.M. Elliott, marriage date 24 Sep 1865 in Sequatchie Co, TN. Another researcher gave me his information as born 18 Feb in Roane, TN, Parents James Monroe Cunningham (1818-1885) and Elizabeth E Lewis (1821-1857). If this is true, I have found him in the 1850 & 1860 US Federal censuses for Tennessee as living with his parents. In the Tax List for Roane Co. May 10, 1808, in the Free Holders in Captain Wallis' Company there is listed a James Cunningham which could be John Wiley's father, James Monroe Cunningham.
John Wiley Cunningham was born Feb. 18, 1847 in Rhea County, Tennessee, USA
Death: May 5, 1919
Pearsall
Frio County
Texas, USA
His wifes were:
1) Sarah Melissa Elliot, b. 1843 d.1888. J.W. married Sarah 24 Sep. 1865 Sequatchie CO, TN
daughter, Margaret E. "Maggie" Cunningham King, b. 14 July 1866 d. 3 Apr.1915

2) Lenora Remaline Epperson, b. Nov 17, 1866 d. Feb 1919
