Henry and Elizabeth Bunn were married in Ross County, Ohio, where they settled in 1807. He was originally from Virginia and his wife from Pennsylvania.
Henry Bunn was a soldier in the War Of 1812, and was taken prisoner at the time of Hull`s surrender of Detroit. When the prisoners were exchanged, by some mishap, he was left on board on one of the enemy`s vessels; but, being in command of a good voice and strong lungs, he managed to make the fact known; and a boat returned to retrieve him.
Their first child, Frederick A. Bunn, was born in Ross County on November 12, 1812. When he was two or three years of age, his parents moved to Franklin County, Ohio and settled on the northwest corner of section six in Madison Township, where they lived for two or three years, after which they bought one hundred sixty acres of land on the west bank of Walnut Creek, in section eight of the same township. The farm on which they settled is at this time owned by son Nelson H. Bunn.
