INTRODUCTION


This is an attempt to put together the life and ancestry of Jonathan Singletary (later known as Jonathan Dunham) from the information about him given by other writers, other researchers, written documents and accountings. I cannot vouch for the authenticity of what is noted by each writer, but it does allow us a peak at the possible life of our ancestral grandfather.

Because of the written errors through the years in connecting this family with the true ancestors, and sorting them from other Dunham families, we need to be extremely careful to hopefully find documentation for our family connections to Jonathan Singletary (later Jonathan Dunham), believed eldest son of Richard Singletary. The DUNHAM DNA PROJECT is now helping to sort families based upon genetic markers. Jonathan's known male descendants carry the same Y-DNA markers as descendants of Richard Singletary who kept the SINGLETARY surname.

Additional comments, verifications, stories, documentation, etc. are welcomed as I try to piece together the history of this apparently diverse character of a man and his family with the help of others. If you have information to share, you will be given credit for your contribution. If you have documents that you can scan or additional resources, I will place these on this site. Thank you to those of you who have already shared your finds.

Author: Rich Crowley Date: 27 Apr 2005 8:06 PM GMT

Indicates Rich Crowley, Lenny Vaccarella, Bob McEwen and Jackie Dougherty have researched the site of Jonathan Dunham's grist mills. They believe they have perhaps located the site, although others disagree. Rich indicates that there are plans for the future to have an archeaologist check the site for authenticity. Rich requests that if anyone is interested and living in the Woodbridge, NJ area that they join the groups (10-15 people per group) in their quest. Contact: Rich Crowley

An old millstone
from Jonathon Dunham's (alias Singletary's) mill
appears on the grounds
of the Trinity Episcopal Church,
Woodbridge, Middlesex Co., NJ

Roger Singletary's research indicated, "He built the first gristmill in 1670 on Papiac Creek near Woodland, NJ, owned 213 acres of land in Woodbridge, NJ, and was a representative to NJ State Assembly." (Resource: Monnette, pt. 1, p. 195)

Patricia Junkins says, "His land is verified in the New Jersey land records and the reference to his election with Thomas Bloomfield to the Assembly."

DRAWING THE BLACK BEANS: THE MIER PRISONERS
7 May 2008: Susan Williams wrote:
"Just visited the Alamo and on display is a story and the actual letter from Robert H. DUNHAM to his Mother, written on the day of his death. Date: 25 March 1843, during the US/Mexican War. Robert was one of the 173 "Meir Prisoners" taken and headed back to Mexico City. Upon orders from the Government of Mexico, they were all to be executed. Instead, they were allowed to 'draw beans' to determine which of them would be shot and which would be kept as prisoners. 17 drew the BLACK BEAN, and Robert H. DUNHAM was one of them.
Is Robert a Jonathan Dunham (alias Singletary) descendant or a Deacon John Dunham descendant?
