infant children to mourn their early bereavement. Though quite a young man, yet such was the confidence which the citizens 
of his native County of Richmond had in him, that he was elected against strong opposition for several years to represent 
them in our State Legislature, first in the House of Commons and then in the Senate; the duties of which station he discharged 
so entirely to their satisfaction, that he secured to himself the appellation of being the most popular man in the County. 
He was also an active and efficient Magistrate of the County for several years. In his death, the community has sustained 
the loss of one of its most enterprising and useful citizens, and the neighborhood one of its best men. To his family and 
friends, his loss is irreparable. Carolina Observer, (Fayetteville, NC) November 12, 1833

which was rumored here the day previously. A young gentleman of this county named McQueen Bunting, who has been 
engaged in the upper part of Lowndes County, was killed on Wednesday under the following circumstances as related 
to us. A man named Ivey, who had children under his charge, entered his school room for the purpose of lecturing 
him, as he said, about the late hour in which he opened school. Bunting naturally excited at his offensive language, 
told him that it was not his business, and ordered him to leave. An affray ensued in which blows passed, and the 
parties were separated. Ivey now drew his knife and again approached Bunting, who met him with a stick which broke 
in his hand. He received a stab in the abdomen from the knife of Ivey, of which he died in a few hours.-Journal (Mr. 
Bunting was a native of Robeson County, N.C.)
