Alexander Dunahoo - What We Know

We don't know very much about Alexander's childhood or early life. We first locate him in the 1820's in Lawrence Co., Tennessee, where he appears in the will of William Parnham as owing him 2 notes and where in 1823 he married Charlotte Hensley. I've checked the 1818 Lawrence Co., TN Tax list and 1820 Lawrence Co., TN census and he does not appear on either.

The search is complicated due to the many variations of spelling for the last name - Dunahoo, Dunao, Donahoo and Donaho and occassionally even with an "e" on the end.

From the census records, he appears to have been born between 1803 and 1805 in Virginia. These dates and location is IMPORTANT.

There is an Alexander Rose 'Sandy' Donoho, son of William Donaho and Eunice Lea, born May 11, 1808 Caswell Co., NC and he married Susan Raimey Aug 6, 1832 Caswell Co., NC. This is NOT my Alexander Dunahoo.

Charlotte Hensley - Her family

There was a Lucinda Hensley (old enough to be her mother) living next door to this family on the 1840 Tishomingo Co, Mississippi Census.

This Lucinda also appears on the 1850 Tishomingo Co., MS Census with her daughter, Rosina (Hensley) Harvil. Next door is another daughter, Barbara (Hensley) Lewis.

In 1830 this Lucinda Hensley can be found on the Lawrence Co., TN census. From all the research that I've done, everything points to this Lucinda as being the widow of Washington Hensley, who appears on the 1820 Wayne Co., Tennessee Census.

For more on the Hensleys, be sure and check out Marty Grant's Hensley website, following the links, above, for Lucinda and Washington.

In my gedcom, above, I have traced many of Lucinda's children, and you can see the closeness in geographic areas and names that have been carried down. I have no doubt that this Lucinda is the mother of my Charlotte (Hensley) Dunnahoo.
