I don't know Emeline's exact relationship with Thomas DUNIVANT, but Emeline's maternal grandmother was a DUNIVANT, so surely he is kin of some sort.

Elizabeth "Betsy" FUQUA is Emeline's sister.  All four children are said to be Emeline's.  William and Fannie certainly are as they named Emeline FUQUA as their mother on their marriage licenses, and Eliza is because William called her "sister" in the 1880 census (see below).  Henry is not found, again, so it appears he died young.  Listed two households from Peggy FUQUA, sister of Betsy and Emeline.

4a.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Emeline not found.

This enumerator's handwriting was atrocious.

4c.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #2 of 56):  Yanceyville P.O., Yanceyville Twp., Caswell Co., NC, Roll M593_1128, p. 469B, PN 2, 16/16, enumerated 28 Jul/Aug 1870, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1870 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

Elizabeth "Betsy" (FUQUA) DUNIVANT is the children's aunt (she's fibbing about her age).
