Hello, I am also a descendant from the Bundy's. of Culpeper Virginia. According to my research. Warner of Culpeper is Susan Bundy's Son. Susan is enumerated in the culpeper 1850 census and she is about 53 years of age. Warner is also enumerated in this record, he lives about two doors down with his wife Ann Phillips. Warner is listed as being about 28 years old.
Isabella is Susan's daughter. I found her marriage certficate in the LDS site. Her mother is on record as being Susan and her father is listed as being John Bundy.
The family is published on the Department of Interor's site and in the following book. Season's of War: The Ordeal of a confederate Community, 1861-1865. Here is an excerpt " Warner Bundy is typical. He, his wife, and six children, ages 3 to 19, live in a house provided by Robertson Coons. Coons also pays Bundy $150 a year and allows him to raise his own stock. Generous terms, and they provide the family a modicum of independence. But Bundy sees very little of his wages in cash, for he and Coons have a credit arrangement whereby Coons provides whatever supplies the Bundys may need and deducts the cost from Warren's wages. Bundy still owes $77 from 1860, and thus far in 1861 he already owes $30 for bacon, salt, and brandy." This book states that Susan is presumed to be Warners mother since both of them are free.
I also found information on another family member. Ryburn Bundy. He testified in the Southern Claims Commission.I found that Ryburn and warner are first cousins. Ryburn's parents are Franklin Bundy and Sally Bundy. Therefore Sally is Warner's grandmother.http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=sccallowed&...
I know that Sally was a free African American. However, I am almost certain this is Warners grandmother. I have yet to validate the relationship to warner.I believe that I am very close to connecting our family with the Bunday family listed on the site below.http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/Brooks_Byrd.htm
