  • Notes 
    • A marriage record for William Cunningham and Sarah Cartledge on 26 Jun 1823 in Columbia County, Georgia exists; despite the fact that many researchers believe this to be the same William and Sarah Cunningham, there is evidence they are mistaken. Sarah Cartledge Cunningham died prior to 1850 and had no children, as attested to by Josiah Stovall in sworn testimony on 31 May 1850, after the death of Sarah Cartledge's father James Cartledge (1845). James Cartledge was a Revolutionary War soldier. His daughter Sarah was born in 1790. While it is tempting to connect her to the family tree, it seems unlikely she is the correct Sarah, as Sarah Cartledge died without having had children. The commonplace nature of her and her husband's first name, coupled with the relatively high number of Cunningham families, makes it difficult to definitively connect families without serious research. In addition, the Cartledges lived in Columbia County, which it is somewhat close to Madison and Oglethorpe Counties, where the Cunninghams made their home. In addition, five of William Cunningham's children were born before the 1823 marriage took place, and while it is not impossible that the couple had five children and were expecting a sixth before they married, social mores of the time make such a scenario unlikely.
