History of Greene County, Pennsylvania

 

SAMUEL BUNTING.—Among the representative men of Cumberland Township we mention Samuel Bunting, a farmer and stock-grower, who was born in Fayette County, Penn., April 28, 1836.  He is a son of Samuel and Nancy (Butler) Bunting, natives of Pennsylvania, and of German and English origin.  Mr. Bunting’s father, who has made milling the business of his life, has now reached the advanced age of eighty-four years.  Samuel was the fourth in his family of eleven children, and was brought up in Fayette and Greene counties, having lived in the latter since he was eight years old.  Early in life he learned the miller’s trade with his father, continued in the business until 1885, and has since been engaged in farming where he now resides near Carmichaels, Penn.  He was united in marriage February 22, 1859, with Agnes, oldest daughter of Samuel and Mary (Cree) Horner.  Mrs. Bunting is of English descent.  Her father was a wealthy miller, and also engaged somewhat extensively in farming.  In politics Mr. Bunting is a Prohibitionist.  He and his wife are zealous and active members of the Presbyterian Church, in which he is an elder, and is also serving as assistant superintendent of the Sabbath-school.
