3James Terrell Dunnam, "Dunnam Family Research from 1999" ( Text From Source: John Peter Dunnam probably moved from Berkely County area to Georgetown where he lived for some time. While there in 1801 he signed the incorporation papers of the Baptist Church there. He married Elizabeth Cuttino. The Cuttino's were active Baptist there.

He is said to be a Doctor and in the sale of his property in 1815 after his death there medicines and equipment was sold. An the sale of items show that he had considerable Slaves and possessions. He move to Marion County S C where he received land and later to the county line between Marion and Marlborough County. His name appears on the 1820 Mills Atlas as owning a plantation on the county line. Both he and his wife died in October of 1815, perhaps in an epidemic of some sort.

His will is probated in in the County Court of Marlborough County, with his son John serving as Administrator. His son William lived in the area and died about 1817. Two of his sons, Ebenezer and John, left S C and came to Mississippi Territory, first to Monroe County, Al., then to Greene County, Ms around 1838.
