Abigail Bartlett Cass Bunker married the farmer Cyrus Bunker. The next 37 years of her life were devoted to the typical pursuits of a farmer’s wife. She raised eight children (a ninth died in infancy) and entertained her gregarious husband’s many dinner guests.

The Bunkers bought a farm near London, Ohio and moved there from New England in 1856. In 1882 two of the Bunker daughters were hired as teachers in the Columbus Public Schools. Given the rough and tumble reputation of Columbus, Ohio in the 1880s, there is a strong likelihood that the entire family decided to move to Columbus so the two daughters would have a secure home. The family purchased a house at the corner of Fourth Avenue and Neil Avenue.
