Benjamin6, son of Benjamin5 and Elizabeth, probably Elizabeth
Seely Bunn of Pougkeepsie and numerous other places, was born
in Washington County, Maryland November 20, 1781. This was during
the troublous Revolutionary period, and about eight and one half
years before George
It is interesting to observe that all name s of the family to and including this generation were given only one Christian or first name with the questionable exception of Mary Ann. This is in reality used as a compound single name. As the country became older and the population grew, two and sometimes more Christian names were attached to the surname. The children of Benjamin6 and Margaret belong to the last generation possessing only one Christian name.
All grew to manhood or womanhood, married, and had families. Thus, the Benjamin Bunn6 descendants over the generations have become very numerous. Arley Earl Bunn 10 (Joseph9, Harrison8, Soloman7, Benjamin6) estimated that the patriarch and wife Margaret had probably 800 living descendants in 1927. Perhaps this number easily increased to 1000 and even more during the 25 years following.
