Title: Bunch Family Pedigrees
Post by: Mark Bunch on January 04, 2005, 05:33:39 AM
We invite you to submit your "Pedigree" for this Surname.   Our Surname Project is primarily interested in your Paternal line, as surnames are passed down from father to son, just as the yDNA is passed down. 

If you ARE A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, send your pedigree by email to .  The pedigree will then be posted on the Surname Project's Patriarchs Page

Please include the following:  (If you have more information you would like to share, you may also post a more extended version of your family pedigree on the project website’s Pedigree Forum below)
•       Name of project
•       Kit Number
•       Name of person posting pedigree
•       Email address to be posted with pedigree
•       Name, birthdate, birthplace, spouse of Earliest Known Ancestor
•       List each succeeding generation, using only those four items of information (or substitute another item of information if missing an item)

If you are NOT A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, you are welcome to post your pedigree on the Pedigree Forum below.  We hope an interested researcher will see it and contact you to share information.

From an email sent by George Young [oldhiker50 AT]:

I am George Young, my cousin John Moore provided the DNA for our grandfather Charles Moore. Not sure how you want to list our oldest known ancestor.
Kit 109520
Oldest known ancestor


GEORGE W BUNCH  born abt  1773 in , , SC, and died Aft. 1850. married ELIZABETH WILD 1810 in , , SC.  born 1787 in , , SC.


LOVE BUNCH born 07 Mar 1823 in , Wayne, MS, and died 15 Mar 1892 in , Wayne, MS.  married ELIZABETH ANN MCRAE 1847 in , Wayne, MS.  She was born 01 Jun 1831 in , Wayne, MS.


GEORGE WILLIAM BUNCH  born 16 Jun 1848 in Wayne, MS, and died Bet. 1907 - 1910. married PRUDENCE DAVIS 05 Jan 1871.  born 23 Feb 1854 in Pike county, Alabama, and died 26 Aug 1891 in Wayne county, Mississippi.


CHARLES MOORE, b. 01 Mar 1885, Wayne County, Mississippi.


We believe Charles Moore changed his name from Bunch. He filed his Social Security

application saying his parents were George William Moore & Prudence Gertrude Davis from

Hattiesburg MS. These people don’t seem to exist. However his WW2 draft registration says he

was born in Wayne Co, MS not far from Hattiesburg. The Moore parents he claimed do not live

in that area. But we do find George William BUNCH and Prudence Davis. Combining this with

the DNA evidence leads me to be 99% sure this in where we connect with the Bunch family.

GEORGE WASHINGTON NELSON b. 1812 Mulberry Gap, Claiborne CO (now Hancock CO) TN married
NANCY TUSSEY b. 1817 Claiborne CO, TN.  They married 1838 in Claiborne CO, TN.
They moved to Floyd CO, KY abt 1850 as they can't be located in any census.  They were in Claiborne CO, TN in the 1840 Census.  Nancy Tussey's family arrived in Floyd CO, KY in time to be in the 1850 Census so we assume that George and Nancy were travelling at that time.  George and Nancy moved to Grennup CO, KY after the Civil War as their son Jacob was in the Union Army as a sharpshooter.  He lost most of his vision from an injury in the war.  The Tussey's were also Union.  Their neighbors more or less tortured them after the war, so they moved to Greenup CO, KY.
George died 1899, and Nancy died 1907.  They are buried on Shells Fork Road.
THOMAS "Tom" NELSON b. Oct 1862 Floyd CO, KY d. 4-29-1936 Floyd CO, KY married Alpha Hubbard 4-30-1889 Floyd CO, KY daughter of Marshall Hubbard and James Hammond.  Alpha was born May 1869 Floyd CO, KY and died Jun 1932 Floyd CO, KY. 
HILAND NELSON born 4-22-1902 Floyd CO, KY died 8-17-1980 Floyd CO, KY married Martha Osborne 10-16-1922 Floyd CO, KY.  Martha Osborne was born 7-15-1905 Floyd CO, KY and died 7-27-1994.

Hi Brent,

I'm in the process of getting pedigrees entered for all the Bunch y-DNA Project participants.  With help that you gave me in the past, I've been able to assemble the following pedigree information for you.  Would it be okay if I post this up on the project Patriarchs Page?...

John Bunch, b. ca. 1630, arrived Lancaster Co., VA ca. 1651
John Bunch, b. ca. 1662, New Kent Co., VA, Temperance Bates?
John Bunch, b. ca. 1690, New Kent Co., VA, Rebecca Harrison
David Bunch, b. 24 Jun 1722, Hanover (later Louisa) Co., VA, Mary Jane Hughson
Joseph Martin Bunch, b.15 Jun 1749, Louisa Co., VA, Molly Anderson
Joseph Anderson Bunch, b. 14 Mar 1788, Louisa Co., VA, Sarah Bunch
John M. Bunch, b 10 May 1827, Grainger Co., TN, Sarah Denton
John Howard Bunch, b. 25 Dec 1861, Perry Co., TN, Rachel Elizabeth Horner
Thetus Sims Bunch, b. 27 Jun 1899, Perry Co., TN, Willie Larlene Whitwell


P.S. - If it's okay to post the pedigree to the Patriarchs Page, can I put up your e-mail address as the "lead researcher" for the line of David Bunch (son of John Bunch III)...

Wow!!!! Just found all this info.  Can't wait to figure out how our George Nelson b.812 ties into all these family names.

Hi Karen,

Some of the trees on the Pedigree forum overlap one another.  They've been compiled together on the Bunch project's Patriarch Page (click on the "Patriarchs" link in the black menu bar at the top of the project Home Page).  The little triangle bullets indicate unconnected "patriarchs," and the level of indentation shows the number of generations of descent from a patriarch.  The hope is to eventually connect some of these little trees together -- we'd definitely like to know where the Nelsons fit into the picture!
