In Reply to: Jeremiah Dungan & Remembrance Cole by Michael Johnstone of 913

I tried to access this page at your site and I cannot get pg 177, it keeps going to 178. I have no proof of paternity other than family tradition that states that Elisha and Hannah migrated to KY and Elisha died either en-route or shortly after their arrival in Pulaski co. There is a record of inventory of Elisha's slaves Pulaski co KY:
Slaves in Will Book I, 1801-1818
(Complete Listing)
[slaves are in order of appearance]


Elisha Dungans *
[no will]
Inventory & Appraisement, 13 Dec 1811
David, man $450
Jack, man $300
[Found no Bill of Sale]

As for issue of Jeremiah and Rememberance (Remember)
the following is an excerpt from a tribute ran in the paper after one of their sons death...
On the 29th day of December, in the year 1811, there was born to Rememberance Cole Dungan, and husband Jeremiah Dungan, a son, and he was named Elisha. At the time of Elishas birth, Jeremiah and Rememberance lived on Fishing Creek in Pulaski County, Kentucky.........

the article then highlights some of his achievements, it is quite lengthy.


Another descendant has told me that Elisha , Jeremiah and Rememberance were buried in a cemetery that was bulldozed into Pittmans creek in the early 1970's by a man who had purchased the land, an excavation trip is in the planning stages to try to recover pieces of the headstones. Pieces of stones can be recovered near the Pitman Creek bridge on HWY 452, not known if any of Jeremiah or Rememberances have been found.

If you would like further info you can contact me directly.
