The "Minute Book 1788-1791 Abstract," states, Monongalia Co., VA : "George Glaze Administrator of Richard Williams, plaintiff against Mordecai Dunham and Gideon Dunham Defendants - In debt. Page 16."

There is also an entry on page 120 of the same book which says that Hannah Dunham was bound over to Richard Sloan.

Abstracts of the "Monongalia County, (West) Virginia: Records of the District, Superior and County Courts, Vol. 1: 1776-1799" compiled by Melba Pender Zinn," states: "47a-1797, Monongalia County Court. 'Whereas one horse and one cow, the property of Mordecia Dunham, now in the possession of Rob't Hawthorn, Deputy Sheriff of Monongalia County, taken by virtue of an execution issued from the County Court at the suit of Alexander Summerville against Dunham for the sum of 2 pounds, 4 shillings and 10 pence for debt and damage...' Dunham desired to keep possession of his property and therefore tendered this bond on 8 November 1797 with Anthony (x) Wade? as surety. The name of John Archer is on the cover of this bond, no connection is noted."
