Early Forbearers in America

Children of William and Ann (Jaques) Bunn were: (1)Mary; (2) Nathan; (3) Miles; (4) Ann and Moses. Nothing is known of Reuben, the son of Reuben4. Neither is there any further information available about Rachel Place, wife of Reuben4. Reuben4 and Rachel Place-Bunn are direct ancestors of the numerous Southern Illinois Bunn families. The first Benjamin, Benjamin5, son of Reuben4 and family's records are fairly clear. A further account of this family is given in Chapter 7.
