John Hunt (b. Abt. 1735, d. Abt. 1808)John Hunt (son of John Tipton Hunt and Mary Fardenan) was born Abt. 1735 in Baltimore/Harford Co. Maryland ?, and died Abt. 1808 in Fleming County, Kentucky.He married Mary Overall on Bef. 1762 in Virginia ?.
Notes for John Hunt:
Rev. War list-Capt. John Tipton's Roll has the name of John Hunt on it.
Timeline-little proof of this.
1735-Family tradition says that John Hunt was born along the Gunpowder River in Baltimore/Harford Co. Md.Ruhama Shannon gives his birthdate as Aug. 13, 1730 St. Paul Parish, Baltimore Co. Md..It is thought that he moved from Maryland to the vicinity of Overall Creek (Prince William Co.) in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia wherre he married Mary Overall in the 1750's. There were many Overalls in Prince William Co. records but I found no mention of Hunts.
The first child of John and Mary Hunt was Lewis Wilson who was born in Virginia around 1762.In 1881 Miles Hunt said his grandparents werre John Hunt and Mary Overall.There are records of John, William, and Joseph Hunt in Lunenburg Co. VA. in the 1750's.
According to family tradition John Hunt fought in the American Revolution.
There is no proof that any or which one is our John Hunt.One served with Capt. Michael Raeder (Dunmore Co. Militia) who may have later been on the roll of John Tipton Oct 25, 1775.This is the one assumed to be our John Hunt.
1783-Shenandoah Co.VA-John Hunt was involved in several lawsuits in which he owed money to others.John Hunt, Jr., Reuben Hunt, and Basil Hunt were also mentioned.
1783-John Hunt is listed on Alexander Hite's tax list.
1787-After the Revolutionary War, John Tipton moved from Virginia to North Carolina and it is thought that John Hunt and his family moved also.The records of North Carolina mention a John Hunt and it is thoughthe is our ancestor.In 1784 North Carolina could not protect its western lands from Indian raids so it ceded the land back to the federal government.It later reversed its decisionn but, in the meantime, people living in that western area formed a separate state called Franklin.By December of 1787 John Hunt was in the Washington District of North Carolina (now Tennessee) where he, along with John Hunt, Jr. Basil and Reuben Hunt petitioned the General Assembly from the Western Country to set up the state of Franklin.Named after Benjamin Franklin, the state governed itself for four years but because of opposition from North Carolina it never became a formal state and in 1796 it became a part of Tennessee (documentation comes from the History of the lost state of Franklin by Samuel Williams, p. 339.
1791-John Hunt was now living in Bourbon Co. KY-August 4, 1791 deed from Mason Co. KY. Book A. p. 119 and 142-John Hunt Sr. of Bourbon Co. KY....Family tradition says the Hunts eventually left Tennessee because of a lack of salt.John Hunt was listed on the 1790 Bourbon Co. KY census.According to a lawsuit filed by his heirs in 1810, John Hunt purchased 1,000 acres in Bourbon Co. KY.This land was discovered to be a part of a tract of land covered by Wright's Military Survey.In disgust John Hunt then moved to Fleming Co. KY.His heirs were seeking to recover losses from this fraud.
By Feb. 27, 1793 he had married Esther, thought to be his second wife.
July 8, 1799-says he is a resident of Montgomery Co. KY
He was listed in the May court, 1799-Fleming Co. KY.In a newspaper article, dated
July 11, 1974, he was listed as being an original settler of Fleming Co.
1808-Fleming Co. KY. listed as deceased.Widow, Esther sues for dower lands in Bourbon Co. KY.May mean that they m. there in the 1790's and she wasn't the mother of his children.
Miles Hunt, in 1881, says that his grandmother's name was Mary Overall.No proof of this.Denton family tradition says that John also was the father of Sarah (Sally) Hunt who m. Abraham Denton;Deborah Hunt who m. Benjamin Denton; Mary (Polly) Hunt who m. William Denton.
Information from William Denton, a genealogy researcher, in 1969."I've done alot of research on John Hunt Sr.I can't prove if he is the same John Hunt that was in Shenandoah Co. VA.I couldn't find any trace of him in Washington Co. TN.I did find a John Hunt in Sullivan Co. TN.I think this is where the Hunts and Denton families met."
Harvey Faye, a Hunt researcher said that John Hunt married Mary Overall, daughter of John Overall of Prince William County, VA. (no documentation)
Miles Hunt says his grandfather was from England; this may be why there is no record of him in VA before 1783.

· this source has done extensive research on this line-see her info before changing data1
· source shows that John was born in England3
· John was born around 1735 near the Gunpowder River north of Baltimore in Maryland.He and his wife began a migration south and southwest, first settling in Virginia, in an area that is now Shenandoah County.There in Virginia their eight children were born.John was a restless man and he continued to move his family south along the shoulders of the mountain range, next settling in what was then North Carolina.Beginning in Baltimore, John Hunt's family was closely related to several other families, the Tiptons, Dentons and Harpers.The intermarried and interrelated families continued to move along together and are represented in a North Carolina petition that requested the government allow Western North Carolina to separate into a new state. In 1787, a North Carolina public bill supporting he erection of a new government was signed by some 500 inhabitants including John Hunt, Sr.4The western expanse of North Carolina became Tennessee in 1796.Tennessee's Scott County first located its county seat in Huntsville which was named after one of the "long hunters" named Hunt.The Long Hunters were those hardy men who were willing to be gone from civilization and family for months and years at a time.They first saw and named the unknown streams and mountain gaps, the salt licks, buffalo trails and rich meadows far behond the settlements.They gave heart and encouragement to their more prudent neighbors to settle the unknown wilderness.While living in Washington County of Tennessee, John Hunt's home was a waystation for Daniel Boone who traveled from Rowan Co, N.C. to Kentucky.The Boone family and John's and his wife's families had lived in Culpepper Co, VA.Before Tennessee became a state in fact, John Hunt had moved his clan on farther into the wilderness, this time crossing the back of the mountain range and finding a home in Kentucky.Tennessee had not offered a supply of salt for the settlers, and their way of life demanded salt for preservation of food and preparation of hides for leather and fur.The Long Hunters had crossed the mountains and made forays into Can-tuck-ee, the cherished hunting grounds of many Indian tribes, and they found several salt licks.John Hunt had bought land near those salt licks and by 1791 the Hunts began to claim their lands south of the Great Ohio River in the great open grasslands of northern Kentucky.It was in this area, also , that the legendary Simon Kenton had claimed 30,000 acres of land in the 1780's.But just as Simon Kenton was cheated out of his landholdings by unscrupulous land speculators, so was John Hunt cheated out of his land, and he moved again, finally settling in Fleming County, KY where he died in 1807.At one time, John Hunt, Sr. owned 5,000 to 6,000 acres of land in Kentucky that he purchased under the old Virginia colony currency (it was bargained for in English pounds, the legal currency for that period)4 -Barbara Broman shows John being born in Virginia4
· Barbara Broman shows John II Hunt marrying Mary Harper4
· Sue Cook shows being born in possibly Maryland and the deathyear as 18085
· served in the VA Militia under Col. John Tipton in 17755
· lived in Sullivan Co. TN about 1783 and to Bourbon Co, KY about 17905
· "1750's Prince William County, VA? Family tradition says he married Mary Overall in Prince William Co, VA in the 1750's.The records of that county at Ft. Wayne Public Library list many Overalls but no Hunts.On the rolls of Rommey and Winchester there is a John Hunt and several Dentons.No proof that this is our John Hunt. In the 1770's in VA, there were 4 or 5 John Hunts from VA sho fought in the American Revolution.There is no proof that any or which one is our John Hunt.One served with Capt. Michael Raeder (Dunmore Co. Militia) who may have later been on the roll of John Tipton Oct. 25, 1775.This is the one assumed to be our John Hunt.In 1783, in Shenandoah County, VA, John Hunt was involved in several lawsuits in which he owed money to others.(copy of actual documentation in file on this)John Hunt, Jr., Reuben Hunt, and Basil Hunt were also mentioned.In 1783, John Hunt is listed on Alexander Hite's tax list.In 1787 in the Western country of NC (Washington District, TN)Petition of the inhabitants of the western coutry, signed by John Hunt, Sr, John Hunt, Jr. Reuben Hunt, Lewis Hunt, Basil Hunt, and Jonathon Hunt.In 1791, in Bourbon County, KY on Agust 4, 1791 a deed from Mason Co, KY Book A-p. 119 and 142 shows John Hunt, Sr. of Bourbon Co, KY.In 1808 in Fleming Co, KY listed as deceased. Widow Esther sues for dower lands in Bourbon Co, KY.May mean that they married there in the 1790's and she wasn't the mother of his children. (source sent for vital records in Kentucky to attempt to prove that this John HUNT was in the Revolutionary War.They found that a John HURT received a boundary land warrent for his service, but not a John HUNT.They suggested that this source seek out boundary land warrents in Ohio for VA veterans-see all info in this sources file)6
· "Miles Hunt in 1881 says that his grandmother's name was Mary Overall.No proof of this"6
· John Hunt settled first in Bourbon County, KY but found that either thru fraud or an error, he was settled on land that was a part of a Military Survey for a Mr. Wright.In disgust he moved to Fleming County, KY where he died intestate about 18077

· source Bonnie Jean Everhart shows that "several HUNT researchers firmly believe that John had only 7 children and not 14.They base this on there being only 7 heirs listed in the KY lawsuit.They believe Jonathan, Sarah, Mary "Polly", and Deborah were not children of John but possibly neices he was raising for a deceased brother"1
