My earliest known anchestor is William Buntin who married Sarah
Jones in Person Co, NC in 1808. However, I believe they lived north of
Roxboro near the VA line and were moving back and forth between Halifax Co,
Va and Person. One of William's children said that he was born "near where
the Hico mets the Dan River".
We think William and Sarah both died in Person Co, NC between 1830-1837.
They had young children (my gr grandfather born in 1830), but I was unable
to find in the index at Roxboro anything on this, but did not have long to
look. Do not have a clue where they were before the 1808 date, except in
the 1880 Franklin Co, ILL, census my gr grandfather Samuel F Buntin says
both parents born in VA.
