LINES FROM DEACON JOHN 1 DUNHAM’S SON BENAJAH 2 DUNHAM (b. 1637)
#7774 - Carl A. Dunham of Fairbault Minnesota
Line from Deacon John Dunham of Plymouth:
John 1 Benajah 2 Edmund 3 Edmund 4 Stephen 5 Gideon 6 Samuel 7 Josiah 8 John B. 9 William Arthur 10 Arthur 11 Bruce Carl 12 Carl Arthur 13 Dunham.
NOTE: THE FIRST THREE GENERATIONS ARE THE SAME AS #1785 (GEORGE DUNHAM), #5791
(RUSSELL H DUNHAM, III), AND #3012 (JOHN LAURENCE DUNHAM)
Continuing with generation four:
Edmund 4 Dunham b. 15 January 1691 in Piscataway, Middlesex Co. NJ
d. between 4 June and 13 July 1749 in Piscataway, NJ 
m. Dinah FitzRandolph
1. MacGunnigle, Bruce Campbell, C.G. compiler of Mayflower Families Through Five Generations, Edward Fuller family, Published by General Society of Mayflower Descendants 1990, Volume 4:34
2. Ibid. p. 108.
Stephen 5 Dunham b. 1 October 1737 in Piscataway, Middlesex Co. NJ
d. probably in Fayette Co. PA 
4. Land Records provide circumstantial evidence that this was the Stephen Dunham who moved first to Hunterdon Co. NJ, and about 1790 moved to Fayette Co. PA. Records from that period in western Pennsylvania are either very poor or non-existent.
Carl Arthur 13 Dunham participated in DNA analysis which showed his line to be from Deacon John Dunham of Plymouth. Members of the Singletary/alias Dunham line were also living in both Fayette and Greene Counties in western Pennsylvania and separation of the descendents of these two lines has been very difficult.
