    That website also contains the following interesting informationabout John C. Cunningham:

      e-mail from Barbara Cheesbrough (April 9, 2004): Here is a little more information regarding my second great grandparents. John Cunningham's middle initial is C instead of S. He was awarded a Spanish land grant on April 6, 1831 for one league of land, three quarters of which was located in Bastrop County, Texas, and one quarter in Fayette County, Texas. It showed his name as John C. Cunningham. The 1850 census of Bastrop County, Texas, shows his name as John C. Cunningham. On his widow, Susan's gravemarker, it shows her second husband was John C. Cunningham. In the Probate Records of Bastrop County, Texas, 4th September 1874 John is listed as John C. Cunningham, deceased. I visited the Cunningham Cemetery which is located near Winchester, Texas. I couldn't find the grave marker for John C. Cunningham, but did find Susan's marker, as well as that of their son and my great grandfather, John Prentice Cunningham.

      Susan Prentice was married first to William Redfield. They had three sons, then were divorced. Susan's sister Ann was married to John C. Cunningham. After the death of Ann, John Cunningham married Susan, who was divorced with three sons. I haven't yet found a marriage date for them. My uncle, Lucius Halbert, who lived to be 100 years old, told me about John Cunningham marrying a divorced woman who had three sons.
