expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Lawyer, legislator, and Democratic Party politician, Benjamin Hickman Bunn (1844-1907) served three terms in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1889 to 1895 for North Carolina's fourth congressional district. He chaired the Committee on Claims. Prior to his election to Congress, Bunn practiced law in Nash County, N.C., as the county attorney and the attorney for the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. Following the incorporation of Rocky Mount, N.C., in 1867, Bunn became the town's first mayor. He was elected to North Carolina's constitutional convention in 1875 and was a delegate to the 1880 Democratic National Convention. In 1882, he was elected to the North Carolina General Assembly and chaired a joint committee on the code. Following his congressional service, Bunn was postmaster for Rocky Mount and had a brief term as head of Rocky Mount Mills.

Bunn was born 19 October 1844 to Redmond Bunn and Mary Hickman Bryan Bunn of Nash County, N.C., and was educated at Rocky Mount Academy. Prior to his matriculation at The University of North Carolina, the American Civil War started, and Bunn enlisted in the Confederate States of America Army, serving as a lieutenant in the 47th North Carolina Regiment and later as captain for a company of sharpshooters with the Army of Northern Virginia. He was wounded at the battles of Gettysburg and Petersburg. His two brothers, William Henry Bunn and Elias Bunn, died in the war. After the war, he read law in Goldsboro, N.C., and received his license to practice in 1866.

Bunn married Harriet Philips of Edgecombe County, N.C. in 1871, and the couple had nine children James, Mary, Benjamin, Jr., Annie Lee, Laura-Maude, Catherine, Hattie, Bessie, and Redmond. Bunn died on 25 August 1907 at his home, Benevenue, near Rocky Mount.
