I found info on David Hunt. Does anyone have info about a David Hunt born abt 1823 in Newton, NJ?

Here is what I found:
Microfilm M653, no. 709 pg. 599 The village of Newton, Newton Township in the County of Sussex of New Jersey:

David Hunt 37 M Tanner
Elizabeth " 39 F
Mary (F or T) 14 F
Charles (F or T)12 M
George 10 M
Daniel 5 M
Martha L. 3 F

At least Charles Daniel's ages are correct. I checked census for 1830, 1840 and 1850, also. I started with 1830. Found a "David Hunt of 50 and under 60"
In 1840 I found a David Hunt of 20 and under 30; he was in Agriculture
In 1850, I found David L (?) Hunt 17. He was listed under a John Hunt 53
Kesia (?) 49, Rachel 21, Sarah 19, Martha E. 15, Henry 12, Aaron 8 and Anna Matilda 6

Barbara, I have a David Hunt whose parents, Richard Hunt and Mercy Hull Hunt were from Sussex Co., NJ. Many in my line located in Sussex Co. Anyway, I think he may have been related to your David. Mine is listed as the youngest of 10 children, a doctor, married to Sarah Roy. But my David died in 1831, and would have been too young to marry in 1823. I only have two children listed for him, Sarah and Elizabeth. My Hunt's stem from Ralph Hunt of Long Island, 1652.

In looking through my records, I found no son named Jacob for Edward Hunt (Thomas, Samuel, Ralph). However, I also noticed that the spouse I have listed for Edward differs from yours; I list Mary Sheul. Perhaps Edward married twice, or, since there were SO MANY Ralph's in the early generations, I am wondering if your Ralph could be the son or grandson of the "first" Ralph. The dates you listed make it possible. I have a line of four Ralph Hunts in the first generations arriving in New England: Ralph Hunt (1), b abt. 1613 of New York who arrived in the colonies abt. 1652, m. Ann (possibly Elizabeth Ann Jessup). They had six known children, one was Ralph (2), b. abt. 1656 m. Elizabeth, d. abt. 1733 in Somerset Co., NJ. They had seven known children, TWO named Ralph. (One died so they passed the name to another) The surviving Ralph (3) was born sometime after 1711, and he married Frances. They had nine known children, one of them was (surprise!) named Ralph(4). I don't have any of Ralph 4's children, but I think he would have been too young anyway. By the dates it's possible that yours could have been Ralph (2), who also had a son named Samuel. But that's where my theory falls apart because I have no Thomas listed as this particular Samuel's son. His only known son was William, possibly m. to Ann Kent, and I don't have any of their children listed. Ralph 2's children all appear to have stayed in New Jersey, though, whereas my line headed to NC.
I have some information regarding The first Ralph, Samuel and Thomas, if you'd like. If you discover more on Jacob I would appreciate hearing about it.--Laura

I now have Ralph Hunt (bet 1620 and 1630 - 1676/77) to Edward Hunt (abt. 1652- 1715/160 m. Elizabeth Hazzard to Thomas to Edward (abt. 1739) to Jacob and then to David

Hey Barbara, I found some notes on Thomas Hunt and thought I'd send them your way--you may already have this. Anyway, can you send me your information on Thomas through David? Thanks--Here is what I have:
Thomas Hunt, b. after 1695, a minor at the time of his father's will, dated January 15, 1715/16. He and brother Jonathan divided the homestead in Newton, LI. He is believed to have died before September 3, 1747, the date of his mother's will, which does not mention him. His name is found in admissions to the Presbyterian Church of Hopewell, NJ, abt 1733, and he had (according to descendent Ralph Ege) a daughter Margaret who m. Adam Ege (b 1728)1749 at Hopewell, NJ. This Thomas is likely the same one living later at Whitehouse, Somerton Co., NJ, and who moved to Fredon, Sussex Co., NJ in about 1756. His son, Edward, b. abt 1739 m. Hannah
Pierson and had 12 children. Edward has been erroneously reported Thomas-3, son of
Samuel-2 but is actually the grandson
of Edward-2.

By any chance do you have the following Laura Hunt in your tree?

I had a great Aunt, Laura Hunt who married Oscar Congdon. Laura Hunt
was born in Pittsfield MA 9/29/1869, but I can't find her birth record
there. According to her obit., she had two brothers, Alva Hunt of
Warren, MA and Walter B. Hunt of Dunkirk, NY, one sister, J. Grace Hunt
of Springfield, MA.

Jay Mack Holbrook's book listed the parents ars Alva A. Hunt and Julia
M. Baker. Alva's name was spelled as Alva or Alvah or Alvin L. on the
various children's birth records. Julia Baker was consistently listed
as being born in Williamstown, MA. Alva was listed as being born in
Pittsfield or on another birth certificate as Naussau, NY

The other siblings listed by Holbrook, not listed in the orbit. were
Lucy Maria Hunt, and Margaret Hunt.

Walter Bradford Hunt, b. August 7, 1883
Alvin L. Hunt, Jr. b. November 1, 1865
Grace hunt, b. February 26, 1886
Lucy maria Hunt b. Februrar 26, 1877
Margaret hut b. February 26, 1880

Hey Barb--

I got most of my info from Mitchel J. Hunt and the same Sandy B.,USMC, that you did, and some came from my father, who remembers some relatives who fought in the Civil War. I noticed your note on Laura Hunt--I don't know much about the New England line after about 1750 because my ancestors went to the Jersey Settlement in NC. I have the first four generations of the Ralph Hunt, Long Island line complete if you'd like it. I have many more generations after that, too, (I think around 16 or so total) but I'm still making a lot of notes on them. Your e-mail address didn't show up on the message you left me. Send it along and I will get this out to you if you want.

My line goes from Edward Hunt(1652-1715/16) to Hannah. Thomas was her older brother. I just found Edward's will and did not realize all the children he had. Do you know his parents' names?
