    Married March 29, 1744 in Piscataway Middlesex County, New Jersey.
    Him and his wife had a total of eight children.
    Parents were Joseph and Hannah (Fitz Randolph) Dunn.
    Has been said there is an Old Dunn Burial Grounds, Girards Fort and Muddy Creek - Washington County, Pennsylvania. Have never been able to locate this family cemetery, may not still exist?
    Someone has brought to our attention that this cemetery may actually rest in Greene County instead of Washington County possibly, as there is also a junction of Garards Fort Road and Muddy Creek Road, which lies south of Washington County where the cemetery was original thought to be. Also has Fordyce Road listed for them both as well. Unfortunately we are too far from this area to have any means of searching for this cemetery for certain to make sure if its actual location whether still around or not at this present day, and hope that maybe in the future will be given an opportunity to bring this to some sort of closure.
