      "Ann Eliza Tunstall, eldest child of William and Elizabeth (Barker) Tunstall, Married her cousin, Edmund Savage Tunstall, son of Edumund and Ruth (Vickory) Tunstall. Edmund Savage Tunstall and his elder brother, William, were educated in a school in Danville; while on their way to school one morning, they met with a Continental army recruiting officer, and both boys volunteered for service in the army, sending the negro home with the carriage. They expected to be together, but that same evening William was assigned to the Southern army and Edmund Savage to the Northern army, and the brothers never saw each other again until the close of the war; Edmund Savage was at the battle of Lundy's Lane, in Guiford Court House, and he was also in other engagements, being with General Washington at Yorktown when General Cornwallis surrendered."
