William Osburn Dunlap, b. 20 Dec 1812 Lancaster Co., SC., d. 26 Oct 1899, AL
William was known as Wiley, and Lavinia went by the nickname of Vinia.  During the Indian wars, William enlisted at Franklin, Heard Co., GA., and was discharged at West Point, GA., 19 Aug 1836.  He received a land grant for his 3 months service and in his pension application, he cites that Lavinia maiden name was Tullis.  He moved to Elmore Co., AL. and lived his life on a farm 13 miles northeast of Wetumpka in Elmore Co., AL.  Both are buried in the Trinity Methodist Church Cemetery.

William was the
s/o John E. Dunlap, b. 1780, SC., d. 1866 in Elmore Co., AL.
(Family history cite him to be known as Earl Dunlap)
Catherine, b. SC,  d. ukn
Both are buried in unmarked graves in the Trinity Methodist Church Cemetery.  Standing between the Church and the Cemetery looking South, the graves are located in the right side of the Cemetery.  There is a very large tree trunk with rocks all around the trunk in a square.  The graves are within the rock compound.  Info came from several relatives that knew the location of the graves before the tombstone were destroyed.  Several of the Dunlap children to include W. O. and Lavinia are buried all around the site.  John served as a second lieutenant in the 2nd Regiment of the SC, Militia during the war of 1812

No official paper trail to the parents of John E. Dunlap exists.  Many Dunlap researchers believe him to be the 4th son of a Robert and Mary Dunlap cited in Rev Hanna's book, "House of Dunlap"
