President Obama's Bunch ancestors
When I was researching the Louisa County records, it appeared to me that there were both white and mixed-race members of the Bunch family in the county. However, after reading Mark Bunch's/ Ancestry.com's article more carefully, I think he is right. All members of the Bunch family of Louisa County descended from one of the first African American slaves who had a child by a white woman. (The family may have taken their name from the slave named John Punch or from a woman named Bunch who had a child by a slave).
