Early Life and Education
George Bunt was born in Delhi, Pennsylvania in 1835 to a household full of accomplished individuals. His father and brother had both played an integral role in the founding of their respective towns – cities which would later bear their names as well. His father’s greatest achievement was his outstanding service to the public during the Great Fire of 1735 and Indian Wars that would remain in his heart forever. His mother followed in his footsteps with equally remarkable accomplishments. Her ten children were all well-rounded and well-adjusted adults, their parents being among the most patriotic citizens in the county. All these deeds were rewarded by a plentiful diet of homegrown produce as well as plenty of family love.

Personal life refers to one’s relationships with friends, family and pets. It is heavily shaped by one’s past experiences as well as one’s social class or ethnicity.
Carol Smart, a sociologist, believes that personal life is more than just relationships with ‘family’. She contends that people can build meaningful connections outside their immediate circle of family members such as colleagues, pets and even friends from different religious or ethnic groups.
Some people are better at creating connections than others. For instance, a man with an alcoholic mother may find it easier to form close bonds with coworkers than with his parents. Furthermore, someone who has experienced past hurt or abuse may be less likely to form strong friendships than healthy individuals.
