In Reply to: Casper Bunner & Mary Christiana Brown by Toni Lamb of 121

I am a direct descendent of Casper Bunner and Mary Christian Brown via my father, Charles Ralph Bunner, his father Charles Whitscarver Bunner, his father George Bunner.
When I was 8 years old and going by Bunner's Ridge in Taylor County, WVA I innocently turned and asked my Grandfather If we were related to any of those Bunner's. Before he could say anything my Grandmother who was hard of hearing said, "No, we're not."
It wasn't until in the late 1980's thru a fluke meeting of my Father-in-Law and his brother with an attorney, William Bunner, who very closely resemble my father that I started my quest on finding out about my Bunner Heritage. Mr William Bunner wrote down some qusetions that were given to me to answer. After answering as best as I could, I was delighted to find out the truth about Bunner's Ridge. Seems like that when my father was a baby, my Grandparents went to a Family Picnic at Bunner's Ridge where a littel brown jug (moonshine) was being passed around. My grandmother being a Women's Christian Temperest refused to associate with that side of the family.
So, any help you can render me in finding out about Casper and Mary Christian Brown would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
