David Bunn Martine: “David Waukus Bunn was one of the Shinnecock men who died on the shipwreck ‘Circassian’ in 1876. He was a first-mate on whaling ships. He was the father of Charles Sumner Bunn and Oscar Bunn. As a craftsman, he worked in ivory – scrimshaw carving as well as ebony. He is the great-great-grandfather of David Bunn Martine.”1
