      From Roberta Dunn ( My Family Dunn and More )
      James was a Linen Merchant and left Ireland because of taxation. Stayed in Pennsylvania for a
      short time and then moved to Rockingham County, Virginia where James had a friend from Ireland
      Living ( James Brewster ). They moved to Kentucky sometime around the late 1700's and from there
      they moved to Indiana and point south ( Arkansas ).
