"...I am seeking your assistance in locating a set of graves in McDowell
WV. I am searching for the graves of John and Ida Dunn Hart. They
lived in the McDowell Co. area of WV. Ida died in 1915 from influenza
and was buried supposely in the Dunn Cementary. Her husban died in
September of 1923. He was shot and died seven days later in the
hospital in Welch, WV. He was also buried in the Dunn Cementary. He
was my gr uncle and was survived by three children. GLenn, Jettie, Helen
whom were raised by my gr grandmother. I would like to know if anyone
was ever arrested for the shooting. Family members do not know much. I
have a copy of the death certificate for both individuals..."
"...This man would have been my great uncle. I vaguely remember two of his children but one of them visited quite frequently. Her children are hunting for information...".

"... He sort of dumped the children from his first married. The children did not talk about it much. I know where they lived. Ashe county, NC in the Grassy Creek section of the county. I have checked death records cementaries and not had any luck...".

"...There is a lot of mystery to the death of this man. He was supposedly shot by a relative (brother-in-law) for no apparent reason the family knows. Thirty years later a man in Ashe county told the 3 children that their father had bought land in Waverly, OH. They were all in 50-60 at this time and in poor heath. They went to Ohio and the property had been sold for non payment of taxes but someone had logged it several times. The same person told the family that he had brought bags of gold from John to the children. The children were raised by grandmother who did not have a lot but never saw any gold/money. Then someone in the Dunn family had a secret to tell the children but she was mentally impaired and never told them..."
