Bunting, James, Md
Bunting, James, M.D.
a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Baltimore in 1814, of pious Methodist, parents. He was converted when but ten years of age. Having received the best possible educational privileges, which his natural talents and remarkable memory enabled him to improve, he was for four years instructor in the grammar-school of Dickinson College. He also studied medicine. In 1842 he joined the Baltimore Conference, but was obliged by failing health to take a supernumerary relation in 1849. He returned to active work, but in 1860 he became superannuated, in which relation he remained until his death, in St. Mary's. County, Md., June 24, 1880. Had his health equalled his zeal, he would have taken high rank as a pulpit orator. His love for souls consumed him. Everywhere he went he had revivals, some of great extent, and all with abiding results. He was a man of great social attractiveness and sparkling wit, of general information, conscientious integrity, and untiring in visiting the sick. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1881, p. .72.
