|Keith Meadows||RE: Harvey Meadows|
I owe you a marriage record and I've lost the paper of who and when it was for in Bristol TN - can you send me that and I'll start working on that for you.

The old woman in the photograph of the Charles Alexander Dunn-Mary Francis Broyles Dunn family is not a Dunn. She is the mother of Mary Francis Broyles Dunn, Katherine Ferguaon Broyles, widow of William H. "Buck" Broyles.

Yes, indeed I am a Dunn descendant. I did the pages for Charles Alexander Dunn and Mary Francis Broyles Dunn under my friend Paul Ford's Find A Grave account before I had my own. So that's why you contacted Paul Ford. No he is not a Dunn descendant but I am. I am the great grandson of Charles and Mary's son Reverend Carl Dunn through his youngest daughter W. Mildred Dunn Reed. I have been unable to find Uncle Glenn Dunn's grave to add him to the siblings My family told me about him and the sad circumstances of his death. My mother has a photo of Uncle Glenn with my great grandmother Vernie Clarence Ball Dunn. BTW, I too am a Meadows descendant through Carl Dunn's wife Vernie Clarence Ball Dunn. Her mother was Virginia Meadows Ball Mullins. My Meadows line goes back to Francis Meadows and Frances "Frankie" Bush Meadows who fought in the American Revolution and his parents Francis Meadows Sr. and Mary Keziah Bell. I would love to hear your stories of my 2nd great grandfather Charles Alexander Dunn and Mary Francis Broyles Dunn. I have Mary Francis Broyles ancestry back to Germany. She descends from the Second Germanna Colony settlers the Breyhel Family from Baden Wurttenburg Germany. I am also friends with the last remaining son of Uncle Kyle Dunn who died in Bridgeport, Connecticut in 1932. I spent Easter with the family of Uncle Kyle Dunn's son Ernest Dunn. As I recall, I was told that your grandmother Aunt Winnie Dunn went with my great grandfather Carl Dunn, who was Kyle Dunn's twin brother, along with Aunt Myrtle Dunn up to Connecticut when Uncle Kyle Dunn died. I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE TO HEAR YOUR STORIES about our Dunn clan. I have been doing research into our Dunn family line for the past two years including trips to Union for orignal documents. Charles Alexander Dunn was the son of Joseph Alexander Dunn (1825-1911) and Elizabeth Dillon Dunn d. 1897. Joseph Alexander Dunn was the son of Thomas Dunn (b. 1776-1778 d. 1837) and his second wife Mary "Polly" Robinson. Thomas Dunn first shows up in Monroe County in 1799 and was born somewhere in Virginia in 1776-1778. Thomas Dunn first marries Sarah "Sally" Dunn and has seven children with her before she dies in 1824. Sarah Dunn was the son of Revolutionary War veteran John Dunn Sr. and Mary Peters (sister of Christian Peters, founder of Peterstown WV). Thomas then remarries in August 1824 to Polly Robinson, daughter of John Robinson and Elizabeth his wife. Thomas and Polly have three sons; Joseph Alexander Dunn, Wesley Leland Dunn and Harrison Burgine Dunn. Joseph Alexander Dunn inherits 74 acres from his father Thomas Dunn. He served in the 166th Virginia Militia during the Civil Wars. All of Thomas Dunn's sons served in the CSA units during the Civil War. Joseph Alexander Dunn sells his 74 acres to his youngest son James Preston Dunn in 1909 for 1.00 and thus disinherits the rest of his sons, including our Charles Alexander Dunn, who never owned any land of his own. He worked for John Allen "Bub" Spangler, the stepson of his Aunt Louisa Jane Dunn Dillon Spangler while his first cousin Marshall Burlington Dunn was one of the biggest landowners in Monroe County! BTW, I was at the wake for your grandmother Winnie Dunn Meadows back in the 1970s when I was a child. Write back soon,
