Merry Christmas Jerry, I am Alan Monday. Sarah Cunningham, who I believe was Langston's sister, is my Great Great Grandmother. I am anxious to correspond with you about the Cunningham family. You can email me directly at monday_am@hotmail.com, I have spent a lot of time researching this family with a big assist from Carl York, a Knox County Genealogist. Langston Cunningham was the pastor that signed the marriage record for my Great Grandparents Jonathon Johnson and Malinda Bailey Johnson Message in Inbox

My wife, Susan Cunningham Hencin, is a descendant of M. Love Cunningham. We weren't sure of his first name, but your posting confirms both what we thought his name was as well as his father's name (John). Thanks in part to a "Cunningham Family Background" compiled by Susan's uncle in June 2000, we have a pretty good outline of the Cunninghams from M. Love to the present.
According to our information, M. Love was born 1/17/1840 in Sevier County, TN and died 2/21/1901 in Knoxville, TN. He was married to Nancy Robinson (apx. 1840 - 1899), a native of Blount County, TN. M. Love would have been my wife's great, great-grandfather.
I would be happy to share our Cunningham family information. Can you tell me how you are related to the John Cunningham lines?

My great grandfather was "Hosey" Cunningham and he married Clementine Rice. They had two children, Maude Evelyn(my grandmother) and Edward. I don't know too much about this side of my family since my grandmother was unsure of who her grandparents were. In those days people didn't talk or care about such things. Please contact me if you have any information or if I could help in some way.
