Subject: Any type of record that might link a R.H. Bunn from Pleasanton

I purchased an automobile from Canada and it was purchased from auction in Neb in 1964. A tag of registration was on the dash and the Hist society in Lincoln traced it to Mr Bunn in Pleasanton Jan 7, 1911 Would you have any records that might link him, family, obits ect. The car is a 1904 Mitchell and it being over 100 years old it would be great to see if he might have purchased it new or if anyone might still be around that would remember him or his family.

Thank you so much Don Mitchell Port Byron, Il.

Could forward a photo of car as it is now restored if needed or would help in any way ?

Don,
I'm looking for R. H. Bunn. So far I have found he is buried in the Kearney cemetery. I will get back to you as soon as I have more complete information. In the meantime, yes, we would like to have a picture of the restored car. Kearney has just acquired a large classic car collection which will be open for visitors in late Nov. We also have an active classic car club here. I suspect both will be interested in whatever information you have about your car.
