(JAMES) BARNEY DUNN, Companies A & B, enlisted for 3 years in Lexington, TN on 7/4/62 and mustered on 8/28/62 giving his age as 54.  He was 6’ tall, dark complexion, grey eyes, brown hair, a farmer, born in Montgomery Co, NC.  He furnished his own horse and equipment and received a $100 bounty for enlistment.  Absent sick by February 1864, he missed being captured at Union City in March 1864.  His family had moved from Henderson Co, TN to Johnson Co, IL by this time so he was sent home to his family doctor suffering with epilepsy, hernia, age and prostration.  Dr. Arbuckle, of the 7th Tennessee, told his family doctor to keep him at home and he was never discharged.  He mustered out at age 67 which doesn’t compute with his enlistment age.   His wife was Mary Barrett Dunn.  He died on 3/11/70 and is buried in Mt. Pisgah Cemetery in Cypress, Johnson Co, IL.  At least three of his sons, Benjamin C Dunn, William R Dunn and George R Dunn served in the 7th Tennessee.  MR #523

DUNN, GEORGE R and B, were privates in Companies C and A.  Apparently there was a George R Dunn and a George B Dunn in this regiment.  Their records are mixed together and are difficult to separate.  It appears that George R Dunn was enlisted by Captain Hayes for 3 years at Lexington, TN on 8/28/62 at age 20.  He was 6’ tall, fair complexion, yellow eyes, dark hair, a farmer, born in Tennessee.  This appears to be the right George since it is known that George R was born in Tennessee.  George H Dunn was 5’11” tall, dark complexion, blue eyes, dark hair, a farmer, born in Franklin Co, AL.  One of these men was captured at Union City, TN in March 1864, taken to Andersonville Prison and exchanged through Vicksburg, MS on 4/9/65.  The other was AWOL in March 1864 and was arrested in Johnson Co, IL.  Both men end up in Johnson Co, IL after the war.  George R Dunn applied for an invalid pension in 1871.  The pension papers would most likely solve the identity problem.  George B Dunn died 10/25/1894 in Cache Township, Johnson Co, IL.  MR #530

DUNN, ISAAC, Co A.  His mother applied for a dependent pension but it was denied.  Dunn has no records in the muster rolls of the 7th Tennessee.

DUNN, WILLIAM R, Co K, enlisted for 3 years by Captain Beatty on 5/2/63 in Henderson Co, TN, same time as his brother Benjamin C Dunn, also of Co K.  He was 6’ tall, light complexion, light eyes, light hair, born in Henderson Co, TN, a farmer.  He went AWOL but was restored.  Presumed captured with the regiment at Union City, TN on 3/24/64, he spent time in Andersonville Prison in Georgia.  In a pension application for the widow of William H Griswell, Dunn wrote in later years that he was an eyewitness to the cruel treatment and death of Griswell in Andersonville.  Exchanged through Savannah, GA on 11/23/64, Dunn was taken to Annapolis MD by 2/20/65.  He was discharged with the regiment at Nashville, TN on 8/9/65.   He applied for an invalid pension in 1879 and his widow Lucinda J applied in 1881.  He seems to have died in Cache Township, Johnson Co, IL on 12/30/1880.  He was the son of Barney Dunn of Company A.  MR #532

DUNNING, JAMES M (JOHN W), Co F, private, enlisted for 1 year at Trenton, TN on 9/20/62 and mustered at Trenton on 9/24/62 at age 18 or 20.  He was 6’1 ¾” tall, fair complexion, blue eyes, light hair, a farmer, born in Weakley Co, TN.  Muster roll says he was taken POW in Christmasville, TN on 1/12/62 but that date would be before he enlisted.  He might possibly be the Dunning who was born on 1/2/44 and died at White Water Station, Graves Co, KY on 10/29/1876.  MR #334

DUNNING, WILLIAM H, Co F, private, enlisted same time and place as James M Dunning, also of Co F.  Apparently captured and paroled at either the battle of Lexington or Trenton, TN, he never showed up at Camp Chase, OH (parole camp) and has no discharge information.  MR #535

DUROSSETT, WILLIAM, Co C, private, has his muster roll information under the name William E Derrossett.  There is no information in this file except the name.  MR #536
