Descendants of Richard Dunn of North Carolina

Dunn

Generation #2

Cpt. Richard (1Richard) Dunn

Cpt. Richard Dunn was born in 1786 in Moore Co NC. He migrated by 1792 with his parents to Spanish Mississippi. Richard is first found enumerated with his family in the 1816 Franklin Co MS Census. And sometime before 1820, Richard married Sarah Dunn b. 1795 in North Carolina. The Dunn Family is found in each of the Franklin Co MS Census Indexes from 1820 to 1850.

Of note, records in Mississippi refer to Richard as "Captain." Perhaps, he was Captain of Militia; however, the circumstance of his commission or the source of the moniker are not known.

Richard is last found by name in the 1850 Franklin Co MS Census. There is another record for a David Dunn of the same age in the 1860 census. Is this the same person listed under another name? If so, Richard and Sarah died after 1860 in Franklin Co MS.
