Henry Gaston Bunn, son of David and Elizabeth Bunn, both now deceased, was born in Nash County, N.C., June 12, 1838, and removed with his parents to Fayette County, Tenn., in 1844, and thence to Ouachita County (now Calhoun), in 1846. He attended Davidson College, North Carolina from January, 1859, to May, 1861, when he returned home and volunteered in the Confederate army, in the summer of 1861, and became third lieutenant in Company A, Fourth Arkansas Regiment of Infantry. In November, 1861, he was appointed adjutant of the regiment, and in April, 1862, at Corinth, Miss, was made lieutenant-colonel, and was promoted to the colonelcy November 4, 1862. He was in command of the brigade at the surrender, under Gen. Joseph E. Johnston, April 26, 1865, at Greensboro, N.C. and marched his brigade home afterward, together with other veteran troops of the Army of the Tennessee. Mr. Bunn began the practice of law in 1866, and moved to Camden, January, 1868, where he has since resided, practicing his profession. He was State Senator from Ouachita and Nevada Counties, in 1873-74, until June of the latter year, when he resigned to take his seat in the Constitutional Convention of that year, to which he had been elected delegate from Ouachita County. He has not held any public position since that time, except special judgeship in the circuit and Supreme Courts, occasionally, and such as local to Camden.
