Birth: 1757

Death: unknown

Mary was the daughter of David Bunch Jr b 24 Jun 1722, Hanover Co, Va, m 11 Jan 1746 Mary Jane Hughson b 29 Aug 1729 (d of Ellis G. Hughson and Dorcus Bonah) d 04 May 1809. David died 18 Apr 1776 Trinity Parish, Louisa Co Va. David Bunch was the brother of Samuel, whose descendants include Barack Obama's white mother, Stanley Dunham. Mary's death year is unknown, but she must have died after the last child was born, so possibly 1802-1815, as Blaxton remarried in 1816. Mary married Blackstone (aka Blaxton) Gentry 14 Mar 1786 in Louisa Co, and they had the following children:

1. James Gentry b 1787 VA
2. Joseph Gentry b 1789 VA
3. Nicholas Gentry b 1790 VA
4. Martin Gentry b 1793 VA
5. Samuel Gentry b 1794 VA
6. Elizabeth Gentry b 1796 VA
7. Mary Gentry b 1798 Bullitt Co KY
8. Ellison Gentry b 1800 Bullitt Co KY
9. Garland Gentry b 1802 Bullitt Co KY

In Sept 1816 Blackston married Nancy Hough in KY and it is said that in the autumn of 1832 they moved their family to Stilesville, Hendricks, IN.

Blackston and Nancy had the following children:

10. Barry Monroe Gentry b 16 Jan 1821 KY
11. America Gentry
12. Eliza J. Gentry
13. Sarah Ann Gentry
14. John W. Gentry
15. Jeremiah Gentry
16. Melvin A. Gentry
17. Hezekiah Gentry

I have included Blaxton's second marriage and children because I do not own his memorial. Also, I am descended from their son, Martin Gentry.
