  • Note:
    James descendants were called 'The Tank Cunninghams'. The date of James' birth on the Cunningham monument at Trigg Furnace Cemetery is shown as 1810, but the 1850 Trigg County census shows his birth as 1808; and the date of Meekins is shown to be 1808 on the monument, but the census shows his birth as 1810. According to the census, James was the seventh child of William and Nancy, and Meekins was shown to be the eighth child. During my conversations with Bertie Gingles in 1986, she said that she had verified that James was the seventh child, and Meekins was the eighth child, but she had received verification after it was too late to change her book, The Cunningham Family, so she just let it stand as it was. She said she had planned to correct this at a later date, but just never had the chance as she was busy with many other projects. So I have corrected this in this book as to the correct line of descendancy.

    * Census Info *
    1830 Trigg County, Kentucky - Andrew was not married and had no children, but he is on the census as having 1 male 10-15, 2 males 15-20, and 2 males 20-30. There are no females listed. As the other siblings were married, and already listed on the census, this works out to be Andrew as the head, living with his younger brothers James, Meekins, Alexander, and Robert.

    1850 Trigg County, Kentucky, District 2 - There is a Benjamin Pool, Farmer, born in Virginia, age 41, living in the household.
