Notes

John Hunt The family home of the Hunts was on an elevation known as Hunt's Hill, southwest of Shiloh, adjoining the residence of Ebenezer Howell. After the death of his wife, Rebecca Ayars, Robert Hunt removed to North Carolina, where there was a settlement of Scotch-Irish, his sympathies being more in accord with the Presbyterian faith than that of the Seventh Day Baptists of Shiloh. Bartholomew, his son, and father of John and James B. was a successful farmer. John, the second son, in company with his brother James, was one of the party who so signally protested against British tyranny by destroying the tea at Greenwich, December 22, 1774. John Hunt obtained license to marry Ann Brewster, May 28, 1779. Of their children, two sons, Richard and John removed from New Jersey, Locating in Springfield, Ohio.
