I have a Michigan Bunting contact if your line is as follows: John Bunting, Jr. along with his brothers James and Charles, the sons of John Bunting, Sr. and Elizabeth Anstiss Bunting emigrated to the U.S. during the 1830's with their families they left Liverpool, England in April 1830. They sailed on the ship Hermitage for a new home in America. They arrived in New Orleans, Louisiana in June of 1830, then traveled by flatboat up the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers to Shawneetown, IL. From there they went by foot and oxcart to the English Settlement of Albion in Edwards Count, IL. James and Charles settled in Edwards County, while John moved on to Michigan.
In July of 41834, George and his family and quite possibly the oldest brother, William and his family, dparted from England for America and landed in New York in August of 1834. They too settled in Michigan.
