In Reply to: Hugh Cunningham in Rowan County, North Carolina by Robert Mike Terry of 9502

Mike, I did not see any way on the Cunningham DNA website to make contact with you or Terry Barton. I felt that John Henry James Cunningham III would want to know that his Hugh Cunningham was not the son of Joseph Cunningham who died in Earl twp, Lancaster Co PA in 1769. I had no idea that you would take offense to my bringing this to your attention.

Hugh Cunningham died in Rowan Co NC. He was born in Lancaster Co PA. We obtained the records of the settlement of the estate of his father, Joseph Cunningham.
It named his six children: James, Joseph, Martha, George, Hugh and Jane. We then proceeded to find the marriage records for those siblings, followed them in Rowan Co NC using tax records, land records, cemetery records, and wills. Only James remained in Lancaster Co PA. The other 5 siblings moved to Rowan Co NC but not all at the same time.

As for Mary Kent, she was in her 80s and living in MO when she applied for a pension for Hugh Cunningham's Rev War service. She mistakenly stated that he died in Sept 1824.
His will was written on 4 Sept 1817 and filed for probate in Rowan Co NC 1817 Nov court session. You cannot file a will for probate before a person has died.

Regards, Bettye Heinrich
