    Other Events:

    • Name: David Dunkin


    Descendants of Thomas "The Seagull" Green website (see sources) shows him as "Daniel David Duncan" born (same date) in Monroe, MO; died 20 Dec 1856/1859 in Monroe, MO; married Elizabeth B. Finnell about 1820 in MO.

    Note: In 1792, Kentucky (finally) became a state from that portion of Virginia west of the Appalachian Mountains. It was never a "territory". It is believed that David was born in what would become Garrard County, KY. However, when given a chance to declare his birthplace for the US Census, he always chose VA as his birthplace.

    David's death info and his parents' identity and their birth years from the Harris Family Tree by "deniharris", the individual page for Daniel David Dunkin is

    Kentucky Land Grants, 1782-1924 ( shows a David Dunkin getting 132 acres in Wayne County on 9 Jun 1815. However it also shows a David Duncan getting 50 (additional) acres in the same county and watercourse on 19 Oct 1821. Since we have other sources stating David moved to near Armstrong, Howard, MO in 1821. Final straw in casting doubt on any of these being our David is that a Charles & David Duncan received a grant of 120 acres (but along Beaver Creek) on 27 Mar 1847 and a Charles Duncan getting another 185 acres along Beaver Creek on 29 Mar 1847. Of course, there easily could be multiple David Duncan/Dunkin in KY at this time. Wayne County is along the Tennessee border, while Garrard County is ~50 miles north-northeast (about 20 miles south of Lexington).
