Hey Y'all,

I have run across some cousins who have all done DNA testing so I started a Dunnahoo One Name Study. Since James here is the father of us all (so far) I hoped you wouldn't mind having the One Name Study Template on his profile. Whether to display the Template is a personal choice. So you can take it off if you'd like. Please leave the Category.

Do either of you have information/sourcing for his probable military record? War of 1812, Private, 111 Regiment (Parker's) Virginia Militia. <--- this claim sounds suspicious since he wasn't living in Virginia at this time - hadn't been for at least six years.
