NOT to be confused with John Dunlap (abt. 1738-1804) of the Calfpasture, Augusta County, Virginia. This John Dunlap did not arrive in the Colonies from Scotland until about 1775. His parentage has been disputed and there are several conflicting possibilities according to his Find-A-Grave page.

    The Kerr and Dunlap Families says: "...John Dunlap and his wife Nancy, whose maiden name was Colvin, resided in Campbeltown, Argyllshire, Scotland. They were the parents of five sons and two daughters, with all of whom they emigrated in the year 1775 to America, and settled in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. Two of the sons settled in Tennessee and Kentucky. Three of them, John, Archibald and Robert settled on the head waters of Middle river, in Riverheads township, Augusta county, Virginia. John lived with Robert, and died unmarried, aged eighty. Robert married Elizabeth Kerr in 1792, daughter of Robert and Elizabeth Kerr, who resided in the same neighborhood at Summerdean."
