Contributed by Debra Wilson


Dr. Bundy was born in Hardin County, Tennessee 2/27/1849. His father's name was John Bundy and his mother's Nancy Hobbs - the former of German-Bohemian, the latter of Scotch-Irish descent. The hiatus by the great war destroyed his opportunities for a good literary education; however, he later received a fair education at the Masonic Academy at Clifton, Tenn.

He came to Texas in 1868, when a mere youth and moved to his present location, Midlothian. He read medicine in 1881 and 1882 at Waynesboro, Tenn. with Dr. C. Buchanan; attended lectures at the medical department of Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn. in 1881, 1882 and 1883. He practiced medicine from 1882 to 1885 in Hardin County, Tenn. and returned to Texas in 1886. His favorite branch of practice is obstetrics and diseases of women. Dr. Bundy is a member of the Ellis County Medical Association.

At the age of 15 he enlisted as a soldier in the Confederate Army, serving under the celebrated General Forrest, and surrendered with him at Gainesville, Ala.

Dr. Bundy married Miss Pattie Fariss September 7, 1871. They have two children - both living at home. He served one year in the Texas Ranger Service as sanitary officer in the command of Major John B. Jones on the frontier.
