Title: Cunningham Family Pedigrees
Post by: Mike Terry on March 22, 2005, 05:40:18 PM
We invite you to submit your "Pedigree" for this Surname.   Our Surname Project is primarily interested in your Paternal line, as surnames are passed down from father to son, just as the yDNA is passed down. 

If you ARE A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, send your pedigree by email to  The pedigree will then be posted on the Surname Project's Patriarchs Page.

Please include the following:  (If you have more information you would like to share, you may also post a more extended version of your family pedigree on the project website’s Pedigree Forum below)
•       Name of project
•       Kit Number
•       Name of person posting pedigree
•       Email address to be posted with pedigree
•       Name, birthdate, birthplace, spouse of Earliest Known Ancestor
•       List each succeeding generation, using only those four items of information (or substitute another item of information if missing an item)

If you are NOT A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, you are welcome to post your pedigree on the Pedigree Forum below.  We hope an interested researcher will see it and contact you to share information.

Hi, Pip.  I got your message:
Hi Marilyn, Thankyou. Please note that it is a five generation pedigree, it is reading as a four generation with 2 brothers in fourth generation as on site now? Pip

You are right--I posted it incorrectly.  Sorry for the mistake.  I have corrected it.  Hope it is okay now.

I was born in Portland, Oregon in 1939. I live currently in Saginaw, Michigan. my father was Frederick Laurence Cunningham, born 1906 in Manitowoc, WI. His father of the same name was born in Longworthy, Iowa. He was a railroad contractor who built railroads all over the country and also in Mexico. he was born in 1860 and died in 1935.
His father was Patrick Cunningham, born in County Clare, Ireland in 1839. He also was a railroad contractor who built railroads all over the country. He was building a track in the Black Hills of South Dakota in 1876 when the news of the Custer battle at the Little Big Horn, Montana happened.

My brother already had the 25-marker Y-DNA test done by Family Tree DNA. How do we go about adding his results to the project? (All I can find are instructions for ordering DNA testing).

To "Join" a project:

In your FTDNA page is a blue button labelled "join".  Click on that button, then select the surname, then select a second gray join button which is lower on the page.  Or, you can call or email FTDNA and ask them to transfer you into the project 

We'll be glad to have you.  Terry

I have already joined the project on my brother's behalf, and our pedigree has been added to the Patriarchs page. What I can't figure out is how to get his Y-DNA results added to the Cunningham results. He has already taken the 25-marker test, but I can't find any way to add his exisiting results.

James A. Cunningham, b. ca. 1780 (unknown), died 1843, Edgar Co. Ill. I suspect his father was John Cunningham who died in the Revolutionary War, leaving a widow, Elizabeth, but I haven't been able to prove this. James A. Cunningham lived in Fauquier Co. Va.(1810 & 1820 census), married Nancy Welch there in 1802. Census records show chidren born there, and in Bedford and Augusta Co.Va.. Court records show he was in Tenn. for awhile around 1830 (possibly Davidson Co.). He moved to Edgar Co. Illinois about 1834. He may have had a close association with an Alexander Kemper who was from Fauquier Co. Va. and preceeded James A. Cunningham to Edgar Co.. I strongly suspect James A. had a brother John, (married Harriet Creel) and a sister Sarah, (married John Creel., later m. George Pursley.)
(son) James H. Cunningham, b. 1820, Fauquier Co. Va., died 1873 (no proof) Edgar Co. Il. >Samuel Cunningham (may have been James Samuel) b. 1849 Edgar Co. Il., died 1932, Edgar Co.

Here is my little bit of Cunningham pedigree and history.

Missouri Belle Cunningham b. Jan 31, 1875(close) in Dover, TN, d. April, 1944 in Paris, Henry Co. TN. m. George Anderson Sinclair about 1891.

Their children were:
George Annie Sinclair
Crawford Sinclair
Gordon Sinclair
Ida Sinclair
Robert Sinclair
May Sinclair
Ethel Sinclair
Lee Sinclair
Archibald Sinclair
Leslie Sinclair
Della Sinclair
Nelle Sinclair Pollard (My mother)

I know that Minnie Belle (she hated that name) and her brother Will lived with an uncle named Hawk Cunningham in Dover TN.  I know that she had a couple of sisters named Margaret and Mary Cunningham.  I have never known what happened to their parents and why Minnie Belle and her brother Will were being raised by their Uncle Hawk.

I compared my DNA results to your collection and I seem to be one marker off of my closest matches (your first line documented). Here's the match up from my markers to yours:

No direct male heirs for paternal tests readily available.  I've also got a list of Bradford and William's siblings. This is one branch of my family I'm most interested in finding and am hoping this forum will lead to some answers.

In order for me to post your pedigree on the Cunningham partriarchs page I need to have a name and email address. I will use the format

John Doe [JohnDoe AT]

Also, if you have someone who tested in the Cunningham project and have a kit number would you list that?
