I too am a descendent of Wm Dunlap Jr. and Polly Ellison. I didn't have
your Reuban listed as one of their children but according to a biography
at the Robinson library in Crawford Co.IL they had 9 children. I had
children as follows: Wm Francis, Susan, Thomas, John P., Daniel,
Hannah, and Robert. I am descended from Thomas who married Mary Polly
Fitts. I have information on his children, grandchildren down to my
grandmother Ada Agnes Dunlap who married Ted W. Thompson. Do you have Wm
and Polly's parents? I have Wm's parents as Wm Dunlap and Nancy Waldrop
who were from South Carolina. They are supposedly buried in Crawford
Co. on a farm owned by Wm Jr. There are no stones left to confirm
this. Others say they are buried at the Netherly cemetary. Wm and Nancy
had the following children: Elizabeth, Wm, and Hannah. Wm was born 1760
and Nancy in 1772. William served in the Rev. War until 1782. In 1816
they moved to Crawford Co.IL. Hope this information helps.
