I am trying to research my Hunsaker family, which is believed to descend from Abraham Hunsaker b. 1799 in Skilesville, Muhlenberg Co, KY (the son of Jacob Hunsaker and Catherine Huffman).
My great-grandfather (through my paternal grandmother) was Frank H. Hunsaker, b. 1862 in Fairplay, Jamestown, Grant Co., WI.(He died in Omaha, NE in 1916 and is buried in Grant City, Sac Co., IA.The village no longer exists, but the cemetery is there and I have visited his grave.)Frank was the son of Lewis Calvin Hunsaker, b. 1840 in Adams Co, IL.Lewis Calvin Hunsaker is believed to be the son of Abraham Hunsaker and Mary Dodd.Mary Dodd is believed to be the 2nd wife of Abraham, although I have not found any records of the date of their marriage.(Abraham's 1st wife was Polly Price, I believe, and may have died early in their marriage.)
The census records have Abraham (sometimes called Abram and with different spellings of the Hunsaker name) and Mary living in Fairplay, Jamestown, Grant Co., WI in 1850, 1860, and 1870 (although the Family History Library has Abraham's death as 1869).
Can anyone confirm this information?Also, is there any written record of this "leg" of the family?
