Julia Bunch was born in Edgefield County, South Carolina about 1845/50.
In 1938, she was living on Beech Island, South Carolina.
She spoke there to Lelia Harris of the Federal Writers Project.
Julia described how she had been given to Jackie Dorn of Edgefield County on the occasion of his marriage. She was 12 when Emancipation came but stayed on for 4 years afterwards. She reared Jackie Dorn's 3 children.

In 1870, Julia was living with her husband James Bunch and her son John, aged 1. Philamon Williams, aged 20 as also living in the household.
unnamed male child b1870.
Pickens Bunch, b1861 was also living in the household. In 1870, Pickens Bunch is recorded as living with Jane Bunch, b1810 and William & Mary Alexander. (www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HY-64JS-RFG?i=54&cc=1438024) Since later, we have reason to believe that Bunch is not Julia's family name, at this point I suspect that Pickens and James Bunch are brothers and Jane is possibly their mother.
