[ETA (MissTickly): Yes. I think it’s worth exploring the idea that Leland Dunham and Hazel Payne might be important links to the Stanley Dunham/Madelyn Payne families.

Below is another interesting fact about Leland Dunham’s wife, Hazel Payne:

Here she is listed in the 1940s census:

And here is her father, Fred Payne:

Make note of the race indicated for Hazel Payne and her family: Negro.]


Since we both put together this post as a team effort we will start with someone else’s post then move on from there.

First look at this work:

A recent (2002) DNA testing of one bearing the SINGLETARY surname and one bearing the DUNHAM surname proved a common ancestor…

that being Richard Singletary. Thus this SINGLETARY-DUNHAM genetic line does not match with the other DUNHAM line out of early Massachusetts.

Just why Jonathan changed his name from Singletary to Dunham is unknown, and at this time various theories, stories, & legends arise to its evolution.” 

It is the Jonathan Singletary (alias Dunham) line, that Barack Obama’s family belongs to.

Next, let’s look at this:

It is all over the internet. The Dunhams are tied to Charles Bishop — Bernice Pauahi Bishop’s husband. And Emma Bernice Bishop Dunham is named in Bernice Pauahi Bishop’s will —–> FIRST. She is named FIRST….


JAMES SKIFF DUNHAM, a rancher of this county, residing in Stockton, was born on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, October 24, 1852, a son of Shubael and Elizabeth (Dexter) Dunham. (See next sketch). He was brought to California by his mother in 1856, and was educated in the district schools of this county, closing with a few years’ course in the higher institution in Collegeville and in the Stockton high school. In 1872 he engaged in farming, being placed in charge of some of his father’s lands in Merced and San Joaquin counties, and has followed that avocation to the present time. Since the age of twenty-one he has been the owner of 320 acres, and since the fall of 1886 has been a permanent resident of this city, where he owns a very pretty and comfortable home. He has been a member of the Stockton Board of Trade, and takes a deep interest in whatever promotes the advancement of this city and county. He is a life member of the San Joaquin Agricultural Society.

  1. S. Dunham was married in Douglass Township, July 20, 1881, to Miss Berenice Bishop, born in this county April 7, 1861, a daughter of Henry Bostwick and Caroline Elizabeth (Gilliland) Bishop, both natives of New York State, married in California, and living in this county in 1890, born about 1824, came to California in 1849. The mother, born in West Fayette, New York, about 1840, came across the plains from Illinois in 1851, with her parents William and Emma (Young) Gilliland. Grandfather Gilliland died in middle life, aged about fifty, and grandmother lived to be sixty-six. Grandfather Bishop married a Miss Reed, both being probably natives of the State of New York.

Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Dunham have three children, all born in this city: Edna Lucille, June 27, 1883; Charles Bishop, January 28, 1886; Leland L., April 7, 1889. Mrs. Dunham is a member of Lebanon Rebekah Lodge, No. 41. Mr. Dunham is a member of Stockton Lodge, No. 11; of Parker Encampment, No. 3, and of Canton Ridgeley, I. O. O. F., being ensign of the last named in 1890. He is a member of Centennial Lodge, No. 38, Knights of Pythias, and of several social and athletic organizations; the Yo Semite Social Club, the San Joaquin Rowing Association, and the Pacific Coast Field Trial Club.

The Will:

“Know all  Men by these Presents, That I, Bernice Pauahi Bishop,the wife of Charles R. Bishop, of Honolulu, Island of Oahu, Hawaiian Islands, being of sound mind and memory, but conscious of theuncertainty of life, do make, publish and declare this my last Will and Testament in manner following, hereby revoking all former wills by me made:

Davis/Seldon/ Sheldon/ Goudy:
William S. and Cora (Hoover) Davis had been married six months on 31 May 1889, the day of the tragic Johnstown Flood, which claimed the lives of at least 2,200 people.10 “They moved to Braddock before the flood,” says the couple’s grandson, Cullen Davis. “My understanding is that they were not in Johnstown when the dam broke.” Davis believes his paternal grandfather’s full name was WilliamSeldon Davis.
Dunham, Davis, Skiff, Peakes, Robinson, Reed, Pierce,Seldon/ Sheldon:

Postmaster Shubael Dunham’s Post Office (1830-1835)
Capt. Shubael Dunham
(1762-1835) lived at this location in Nov. 1830, when he was appointed the postmaster of Holmes Hole. He was the son of Capt. Shubael Dunham and Lydia Chase of Edgartown, and was the husband of Charlotte Norton (1762-1821).

Postmaster George Dunham’s Post Office (1835-1858)
In March 1835, about the time of Capt. Shubael Dunham’s death, his son George Dunham (1802 – 1872) succeeded him as postmaster, an office he held for over twenty-three years. He was married to (1st) Eliza Manter (1801-1835) in 1820 and (2nd) Mary (Crowell) Luce (1795-1871; the daughter of Barzillai Crowell, and the widow of Elisha Luce).

The 1858 Walling map shows two buildings here: the post office on the corner, and George Dunham’s house, set back a little from road, southwest of the post office. George Dunham “Esq.” retired from the post office in 1858 and became a farmer.

(The post office moved from this location and was not located here again until 1903. The interim postmasters were Eliakim Norton 1858-1861; James Norton 1861-1871; James D. Peakes 1871-1881; George N. Peakes 1881-1885; John F. Robinson 1885-1896; and F. Horton Johnson 1896-1903.

Peggy C. Dunham (1832 – ?) was the daughter of George Dunham and lived with him until the early 1860s. She married Tisbury mariner James L. Skiff (c.1825-30? – ) in Fairhaven in 1854. He was the son of mariner Stephen Skiff of Chilmark and Tisbury. Peggy was listed in the 1865 census as a “mantua maker,” a mantua being a style of loose gown. She inherited this 48′ wide property after the death of her father, former Postmaster George Dunham, in 1872. The Skiffs evidently moved to California in the 1870s, perhaps following the death of Peggy’s father, and rented out the house. According to Holmes and Luce, one of the tenants was Capt. James Seldon.


Davis believes his paternal grandfather’s full name was William Seldon Davis. …Priscilla Lee (Childers) Baker Wilborn became Cullen Davis’s second wife …

They had a total of nine surviving children.Young had operated a small foundry and machine shop in Hilo, Hawaii with William Lidgate, and business expanded with the growth of sugarcane plantations. He moved to Honolulu around 1869 and bought out Thomas Hughes’ share of the Honolulu Iron Works. In 1875 Theophilus Harris Davies refinanced the Honolulu Iron Works and hired Young as manager. The two then organized the Waiakea Mill Company. Around 1900 he formed the von Hamm-Young Company. Principals were Young’s son Archibald Alfred Young and son-in-law Conrad Carl von Hamm. An early project was the Alexander Young Hotel.

    Renee, In the beginning of your post I see the name Tate. Also the Dora Tate (with not ancestry mentioned). Do you remember when I checked into Madelyn’s apartment, there one or two people listed at her residence with last names Tate. I kept trying to find connections. So long ago now, but I found a Marcus Tate also that worked for O. during his capping. The guy was a student at a University in Greenville SC. Can’t think of the college right now, but I remember thinking back then all the coincidences with that Tate name…because something was also historically connected to a Tate women at that college as well. Do you remember any of this.
    WHere on earth did you find that picture. Oh yeah that’s Stanley or a twin.

    The gallery was founded in 1897, as the National Gallery of British Art. When its role was changed to include the national collection of modern art as well as the national collection of British art, in 1932, it was renamed the Tate Gallery after sugar magnate Henry Tate of Tate & Lyle….

    Francis Taylor (December 28, 1897 – November 20, 1968) was an American art dealer and father of the actress Elizabeth Taylor.

    He was born Francis Lenn Taylor in Springfield, Illinois, the son of Francis Marion Taylor (1860–1946) and Elizabeth Mary Rosemond (1869–1937). The family later moved to Arkansas City, Kansas.

    Francis began dealing in art in New York City for a wealthy in-law, Howard Young.
    Taylor married stage actress Sara Sothern (whose real name was Sara Viola Warmbrodt and was also from Arkansas City) in 1926 in New York.They were the parents of Howard Taylor (born 1929) and Elizabeth Taylor (1932–2011), who became an aclaimmed and legendary movie actress….

    Within a few years of his marriage, Taylor was transferred to Young’s art gallery in London, England, where he and Sara lived several years, and where their children were born. At the outbreak of Britain’s involvement in World War II, they returned to the United States.

    Taylor later ran an art gallery in Beverly Hills, California.
