     David Cunningham was the son of Walter Cunningham of Harrison County, W. Va. Walter was born December, 1749 in Shenandoah County, Va. and served in the Revolutionary War. His service was established in the D.A.R. by Linda Fluharty and in the S.A.R. by Don Pauley. - Walter was likely the son of Adam Cunningham, as shown in a new book by Betty Newman Cunningham titled, "ADAM, and 500 More Cunninghams...", available from heritagebooks.com.
