Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 29, 1816
Kentucky, USA
Death: Apr. 25, 1859
Henry County
Missouri, USA

Dau of Robert McFarland b abt 1787 and Sarah "Sally" West. Robert was living in Henry Co in 1860, age 73, next door to Henry and Nancy (McFarland) Dunning.
m: Miles Dunning

1850 census: Macoupin IL: DUNNING Miles/30/KY, Sarah/33/KY, James H/1/KY, Pamela/2 mos/IL and Solomon/21/KY, perhaps a brother.

--both Sarah and Miles died before 1860 census leaving children James Henry (11) and Ava J (6) orphaned. It is not known if Pamela (who would have been 10 in 1860 census) had died young, or if she was separated from her siblings and raised by a different family.

Note: Miles and his uncle Wm. Henry Dunning married sisters Sarah and Nancy McFarland. Henry and Nancy raised the orphaned children (James H. and Ava J.) of Miles and Sarah, who died within a year of each other at young ages.

--Originally buried in William "Billie" Dunning cemetery. Remains from the 342 known graves and the Dunning cemetery gate were moved to Englewood about 1979 to make way for the Lakes projects. The cemetery was "recreated" in Englewood as shown in photo. Most of the graves are marked with a standard marker, altho a few of the original tombstones were moved and placed here. Many graves are marked as "unknown".
