UNION ARMY SERVICE
VOLUNTEERED TO SERVE IN
THE UNION ARMY
Information from gravestone in Center Hill Cemetery. Born 1843; died 1913. Served in the Union Army.
Census of 1860 lists Daniel Dunn, age 14, in home of Giles & Sidney Dunn, using post office at Cohutta Springs. Daniel's older brother, Joseph, enlisted in the Confederate Army. Family thinks that Daniel was killed in battle, possibly at Shiloh, but this has not yet been confirmed.
Census of 1860 lists Jacob Dunn, age 19, in home of Jacob & Mary Headrick, using post office at Cohutta Springs. Census records indicate that the household also included John Headrick, age 23. Since there is no record that John enlisted in any of the Confederate units formed in Murray County, it is possible that he also served in the Union Army. Service for the two has not yet been verified.
