Mary Polly Bunch1

F, #89336, b. 10 March 1757, d. between 1802 and 1815
Last Edited11 Feb 2019
     Mary Polly Bunch was born on 10 March 1757 at Louisa Co., Virginia, USA.1 She married Blackston Gentry, son of Nicholas Gentry III and Elizabeth Stringer, in 1787 at Virginia, USA; His 1st wife. According to her Find A Grave memorial, their first child born, James, was born in 1787.1
Mary Polly Bunch was buried between 1802 and 1815 at Burial location unknown

;
from Find A Grave:
     BIRTH     10 Mar 1757, Louisa County, Virginia, USA
     DEATH     unknown, Bullitt County, Kentucky, USA
     According to an Ancestry article about Barack Obama's Bunch lineage, Mary was the daughter of James Bunch b ca 1724. James was the 8th child of John Bunch III, who was the son of John II, who was the son of John I, who was the son of John Punch. According to James' will, he gave his daughter Molly (Mary Polly) Gentry 100 acres adjoining his own land and the tract he gave Margery Harris (and had already given her a cow, calf, and feather bed). Descendants of John Bunch III, include Barack Obama's white mother, Stanley Dunham, who we believe was descended from David Bunch.
     John Punch was the immigrant who came from England in the 1600s as an indentured servant. Normally, indentured servants served for 7 years before attaining their freedom in order to pay for their passage from England. It is known that John Punch was either black or mulatto. He married a white woman. For further information about him you can google him and Wiki has a page about him. He was the first documented slave in America.
     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 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 Blaxston married Nancy Hough in KY and it is said that in the autumn of 1832 they moved their family to Stilesville, Hendricks, IN. Blaxston 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.

     BIRTH     13 Nov 1806, Bullitt County, Kentucky, USA
     DEATH     3 Dec 1890 (aged 84), Tuscola, Douglas County, Illinois, USA
     Garland Gentry was born in Bullit County, Kentucky, on November 13, 1806. He was the last and ninth child of Blackston and Mary (Bunch) Gentry, and the fifth generation of the Gentrys in America. His brothers were James (who had sons Quinton, Taylor and John), Joseph, Nicholas (born in Louisa County, Virginia, December 16, 1790), Martin, Samuel and Ellison. His sisters were Mary and Elizabeth (who married John Giles and had a son. Gentry Giles, who lives in Rockport, Indiana, and became a very wealthy man).
     After Garland's mother died, his father married Nancy Hough and they had seven children who were: Monroe, America, Elizabeth, Sarah, John, Jeremiah, and Hezekiah. It is believed the descendants of this last family have all settled in Indiana.
     Garland married his first wife, Susan Stringer, in Kentucky. They had three children, Mary E. (born 1829 in Kentucky); after they moved to Indiana in 1831, their two sons were born, Ellison born in 1832 and Reuben born in 1838. After Susan died. Garland married Penelope Wheeler, born July 19, 1821, in Kentucky. They were married in Morgan County, Indiana, on December 24, 1839. They had nine children: Allen, August 18, 1840; Cynthia, December 3, 1841; James Martin, March 26, 1843; and Blackston, 1844. Garland moved his family to Missouri where their son, William, was born March 9, 1850; Samuel, April 19, 1852, and between 1852-1856 they moved back to Indiana where their son, Anson, was born in 1856; and John Henry, April 3, 1860. They moved to Illinois where they settled near Hammond (once called Garrett), where another son, Jerimiah, was born June 22, 1865.
     While living in Missouri, Garland and Penelope lived in Monroe and Clay counties. The 1850 Clay County census lists not only the Gentrys there but also: Robert James, 31 years old. Baptist preacher; Serelda James, 28 years old; Alexander Franklin James, ten years old; Jesse Woodson James, four years old; Susan James, nine months old.
     Garland and Penelope lived near the parents of the notorious Frank and Jesse James, and Penelope was midwife at Jesse's birth. She was the first one to dress the future Missouri badman.
