I was wondering if any of the Dunn family have any photos of George
Washington Dunn and his wife Susan Lassiter, or their children.
George Dunn had these children, who had children
Henderson Boyette Dunn
Doctor Benjamin Dunn
Moses Jackson Dunn
Preston Union Dunn
My Gr. Grandfather Henderson Boyette Dunn and wife had the following
children who had children.
Merrill Dunn
Marshal Benjamin Dunn
George Elisha Dunn
As all these families lived past 1920 I am certain of family photos.
If you have family photos please forward them to Mike and Diane with a
discription of who they are and they be placed on a family photo page.

Posted January 6, 2008 February 2008 I'm Laura Whitaker, granddaughter of William J. Whitaker who was son of Emma Elizabeth Elmore. She was the granddaughter of Elizabeth Hollingsworth who married James Dickson Wilson. In our family are also Carlton's and Parker's who are remembered as my Grandfather's cousins. Emma's sister, Adda Estelle Elmore married Matthew Carlton and her other sister Margaret "Pearl" Elmore married Emmulon Lanier Parker. My father and his sister played with a cousin Keith Carlton of NC in the 30's and I would love to get in touch with either of the Parker, Carlton or Wilson families. My Grandfather was born in 1907 and died close to 90 yrs of age - so he passed in the last decade and I've begun our family search as a result of trying to maintain our NC heritage. If you would be so kind to share my note, I'd be most grateful! My father has a wonderful childhood memory of playing he believes at the Carlton home, my aunt believes it could have been the Parker home, in the woods of NC where remained in the corner of their family home a huge indent from a Civil War cannon ball! I wish I had more information... Email direct at:

Posted February 19, 2008 I am an African-American Researcher. My family, as far as I know was white during their time in Duplin Co. NC in the late 1700s and early 1800s. They came over from Cartert Co. NC. The progenitor of the family was Laughlin (Loflin) Quinn (1712-1774). I would like to find out more about King George's War that Loghlin took part in and any other relevant information regarding the Quinn family in Duplin Co. NC. Email direct at:

Posted March 7, 2008 April 2008 Surname: Taylor Time Frame: 1725-1825 Researcher: Ralph Taylor Notes: Looking for the parents of Michael TAYLOR, born 1789, probably in the Core Creek or Flat Swamp area of northwestern Craven County, North Carolina. Have developed extensive information on Taylors and the associated/related families in the area which I am willing to share. Those include Beasley, Daughety, Green Slade, Bryan, Aclin. (Novice researchers please note that these names are spelled multiple ways.) Y-DNA evidence indicates that Michael Taylor shared a common male ancestor with Moses Taylor (1729-1819), son of Robert Taylor (1709-1780). Thus, he is somehow descended from the extended Abraham Taylor family that migrated from Baltimore County, Maryland to Craven County, North Carolina in 1729, but DNA does not say who, when or where. Michael was closely associated with James Taylor, another son of Robert, from no later than 1810 (and probably earlier) until James' death in 1816. This association is documented in Rutherford County, Tennessee, where James migrated about 1806. The hypothesis that James was Michael's father has been explored and rejected on several grounds. If I can help you, I will. If you can help me, I'll be especially grateful. Email direct at:
