Me Great Grandfather come over from Ireland by way of Liverpool England

My Great Grandfather John Edward Dunn was known as "Liverppol Jack", don't know why. My Grandma Katy said his family was from County Cork in Ireland, I have seen conflicting data indicating they were from Dundalk. Who knows which is correct? I tried to hire a genealogist to find relatives from Ireland but never got anywhere. He did live in Liverpool a short while before coming to America.

John Edward served aboard several ships crossing the Atlantic and we know he swam ashore after being shipwrecked at least twice at Morehead City, and possibly more. Once he swam ashore with a fellow by the last name of Rehm. Apparently they stayed close friends through the years. When he reached the New World he travelled west and tried his hand in the California Gold Strike. He came back east and settled in Hyde County, Married and had 4 children with Matilda Jane Morris. When he was 53 he married again to Margaret Minerva Winfield and they had 14 children. I reckon 18 children were enough as he passed in 1912. His oldest would have been 54, and his youngest 10...whew!

My Grandma Katy (Kathryn Elizabeth Dunn Manning) was the sweetest most lovable 4' 10" Irish grandma a kid could ever know. Born in 1890 she lived 95 years. She used to laugh and say, "Stephen, all my friends are dead now. All my friends kids are dead too!". Grandma Katy was very resourceful and seldom looked at a recipe, land-o-goshen how she could make biscuits, pound cake, apple crispe, and pecan pie all from her garden!

One Sunday after Grandaddy Fletcher had passed and Grandma Katy was in her mid 80's and living alone; she decided to go to church so she set out walking the mile or so down the road since she did not have a ride. A trucker came by and was astonished to see her walking the road, so he picked her up and carried her to church!

Every Mothers' Day Sunday at Mount Olive Christian Church the preacher would give away gifts (more like trinkets) to the oldest mom, mom with the most siblings, mom with the most grandchildren, etc. Grandma Katy would always win most of the awards.

I'll never forget her laugh and her blunt speech. Everyone should have a Grandma Katy.

Surname Dunn or Done

This interesting surname with the spelling forms Don, Done, Dunn, Dunne, Donn and Donne, may be either Celtic - Gaelic or Anglo-Saxon in origin. It is recored in all parts of the British Isles, including Ireland, and it derives usually either from the Old Gaelic "donn", or the Old English pre 7th Century "dunn", both have the same meaning of "brown", and in both cases the name was probably originally given as a distinguishing nickname to someone with dark hair or a swarthy complexion. This may have been a national characteristic of the Old English and Celtic races, since the invading Vikings and Anglo-Saxons of the period were either fair or red haired. In some cases the name could be topographical for a person who lived by a "dun" or hill. The surname is first recorded in England in the latter part of the 12th Century, (see below)and early examples of the name recording include John le Dunn, in the 1198 "Fine court Rolls of Hertfordshire, whilst Jobin Don appears in the Staffordshire Forest Pleas, dated 1271. Adam le Don or le Dun, was recorded in the 1275 "Subsidy Rolls of Worcestershire" and in a "Calendar of documents relating to Scotland" Patrick de Dun was canon of Glasgow. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of William Dun, which was dated 1180, in the "Pipe Rolls of Gloucestershire", during the reign of King Henry 11, known as "The Builder of Churches", 1154 - 1189. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
