    BUNTIN / BUNTEN / BUNTON / BUNTING
    Am searching for information on Daniel W. and Nancy BUNTIN or above variations. They probably moved to New Madrid in 1870's as one daughter Nancy Jane, was born in 1878 and they show up on the 1880 census when she was two years old. They had one other daughter born in New Madrid-date unknown, but probably early 1880's. Family story says mother and youngest daughter died in a smallpox epidemic and several years later the father died in a second smallpox epidemic. The oldest daughter survived and was sent by train to Hot Springs Ak to live with maternal aunt's family when she was about 7 years old. This would make the 2nd epidemic in 1885. The only proof I have of families existence there is the 1880 census and the family bible that was taken to Arkansas by Nancy Jane. It states that she was born in New Madrid. Where are they all buried? He was a blacksmith and farmer, supposedly had a farm that in later years was washed away by the Mississippi river. Can't find land records of this. They previously had lived in Jackson, Madison Co. TN, had 2 little boys, both died at same time according to bible. Would love to find something out about this family. If anyone knows anything or would like more info, please e-mail me.
