ALEXANDER GUNN was born October 14, 1828, in West Findley township, Washington Co. PA. He attended school in the old-fashioned log schoolhouse of those days, a few weeks in winter time, the remainder of the year being occupied in assisting his father in the general duties of the farm. On March 18,1851, he was married to Mary Burns, who was born October 18, 1830, on the farm where she and her husband now reside in West Findley township, a daughter of John and Martha Burns. They had ten children. After his marriage Mr. Gunn rented an unimproved part of his father-in-laws farm in West Findley township, on which he erected a cabin, and then proceeded to clear the land of the timber and underbrush, and make for himself and bride a comfortable though primitive home. When the Civil war broke out Mr. Gunn enlisted in Company K, Sixteenth PA Cavalry serving until March, 1863, his term of enlistment having expired, and he was discharged from the service with the rank of second lieutenant. During his absence with his regiment his house and barn were destroyed by fire, and on his return he moved to Buffalo township, where he resided six years, engaged in agriculture; he then came to the farm on which he now lives, in West Findley township, and which comprises 250 acres of fine land, all in a good state of cultivation; The family were members of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church at Burnsville.

Civil War veteran 10/25/1862 - 2/28/1865. CO. K 16TH. PA Vols.
