Dunaway family celebrates landmark achievement

Members of Jackson County's Dunaway family, all of whom have close ties and roots in Two Egg, saw a dream become a reality yesterday. For the first time in nearly 20 years, a new chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution was formed in Florida. The celebration in Marianna marked an accomplishment that came as the result of decades of work by Robert ("Kenny"), Harry ("Hap") and Fletcher Dunaway.
The William Dunaway Chapter of the Florida Society of the Sons of the American Revolution was officially instituted during ceremonies yesterday. The new chapter, Jackson County's first, honors Patriot William Dunaway, who served in the 5th Virginia Regiment during the American Revolution. He served during the Yorktown Campaign and then went on to fight under Col. Elijah Clarke in Georgia during the final major actions of the war.
If you live in or around the Two Egg or Jackson County area and have an ancestor who served in the American Revolution and would like to join the new chapter, feel free to contact me and I'll be glad to put you in touch with them. Just follow this link to send me an email:
