1. Samuel Cunningham married Mary McKemie, daughter or sister of John McKemie. Samuel Cunningham died a very young man in 1747, leaving one daughter Margaret Cunningham, who married Robert Armstrong. The widow Mary Cunningham married Andrew Mitchell. Robert Armstrong and his wife Margaret settled in the Watauga Valley, and finally in Knox County, Tennessee, where they left a large family of children and great-grandchildren; the genealogists have it that they came to Tennessee by way of South Carolina, where they resided for many years. John Armstrong, a brother of Robert, married Jean Baker, a daughter of Douglass Baker and his wife Jane Thomson, daughter of Rev. John Thomson and brother in law of James Cunningham, of Cub Creek, in Charlotte County. Both Robert Armstrong and his brother John Armstrong moved to Tennesee.
