Ancestors Dead-End, Cunningham & Whitlock

+4 votes
I have hit a dead end on two of my 3rd great grandparents, George Washington Cunningham & Katherine "Kate" Sarah Jane Whitlock.  I cannot find parents for either of them.

George was born March 5, 1843 in Franklin County, TN and died February 20th, 1912 in Moore County, TN (Specifically, in the 12th school district).

Katherine was born in 1840 (location unknown) and died in 1875 in TN.

They were married November 17, 1868, in Lincoln Co.,TN and were the parents of one daughter, my 2nd Great Grandmother Louise Elizabeth Cunningham (born June 13, 1873 in TN and died December 27, 1904)

George was listed as being a CSA Veteran, having fought in Company 1 of the 34th TN Infantry.

One of the roadblocks I'm having is that there is another George Washington Cunningham who is listed as having been born in Warren Co., TN (quite a distance at that time from Lincoln and Franklin Counties), and a slew of Cunninghams in that area..however I don't believe this is the same George Washington Cunningham.

I literally have no further information on Kate.  I have been to the cemetery where their graves are located, several years ago, but at that time didn't see any graves that I thought were parents nearby.  

Is there anyone here who has any information that could be helpful?

Thanks so much in advance!
