91. Anna "Maria"5 Bunting (Kendal4, Smith3, Jonathan2, William1) was born about 1788. Anna died March 31, 1819 in Poquoson, VA, at 30 years of age. The Smith Bunting Bible shows Ann Maria Bunting, the wife of Smith Bunting, departed this life on the last day of March 1819 about 11 o'clock at night. (extract of Bible on file at Poquoson Library, Bunting file)
She married William "Smith" Bunting (of Back Creek) in Accomack Co., VA, December 27, 1806. The Accomack bond shows December, 1806 and that Maria Bunting is the daughter of Zillah. (Nora M. Turman, Marriage Records of Accomack Co. VA 1776-1854) The Smith Bunting Bible shows 27 December, 1806 as the date of marriage.
William was born about 1780. William was the son of Smith Bunting(Jr.). William died February 4, 1845 in York Co., VA, at 64 years of age. (Smith Bunting Bible, extract on file at Poquoson Library, Bunting file) He gave his age as 50-60 in the 1840 York County census. It is not proved that he was the son of Smith Bunting, Jr. Smith Bunting, Jr. did leave young orphans, but their names are not known.
Smith Bunting was a member of Capt. Samuel Shield's Company of Light Infantry on the muster roll of March 1, 1813, War of 1812. He is described as a planter, a native of Accomac, who was 5' 6" tall. A Luther Bunting, waterman from Accomack, 6' tall, is listed in the same Company. Captain Shield's Company would have been part of the 2nd Battalion 115th Regiment of Virginia Militia and participated in the Battle of Hampton on June 25, 1813. (Vincent Walkins, History of Tabernacle Methodist Church, pp. 16-18)
Notes of Michael Bunting indicate that Smith referred to Luther Bunting as "brother." Luther was the son of Kendal and Zillar Bunting and brother of Smith's second wife, Anna Maria Bunting. Smith may have used the term to refer to his "brother-in-law" and the possibility exists that William Smith Bunting, orphan, may have been raised in the household of Kendal & Zillar Bunting.
Smith Bunting's name appears on a York County Legislative Petition dated February 11, 1839 regarding the curtailment of their livlihood as oystermen. (Vincent Walkins, History of Tabernacle Methodist Church, pp15, 76, 79) Smith is found in the 1820 and 1840 census of York County. Ann Bunting is shown as head of household in the 1850 & 1860 census of York County.
Smith Bunting had 17 children as shown in his Bible. (extract from Smith Bunting Bible on file at Poquoson Library, Bunting file; Louis Barnes). He had 11 by his 3rd wife, Nancy Topping. He had 5 by wife, Anna Maria Bunting, three who lived to adulthood.
William "Smith" Bunting (of Back Creek) and Anna "Maria" Bunting had the following children:
