From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thomas Lathrop Bunting (April 24, 1844 – December 27, 1898) was a U.S. Representative from New York.

Born in Eden, New York, Bunting was educated in the common schools and the Griffith Institute, Springville, New York. He taught school in winters and attended the academy in summer months. Illness having interrupted his preparation for college, he moved to Hamburg, New York, in 1868 and later established a general mercantile store. He engaged in the canning business.

Bunting was elected as a Democrat to the Fifty-second Congress (March 4, 1891 – March 3, 1893). He declined to be a candidate for renomination in 1892. He resumed the canning business and also became interested in farming, dairying, and stock raising. He died in Buffalo, New York, December 27, 1898. He was interred in Forest Lawn Cemetery at Hamburg, New York.
