Trying to determine the actual wife of Simon Hunt (1704 - 1790), son of John Hunt and Mary Brown. There is no marriage record that I am able to find. Several sources noted below all state his wife is Mary Raymond. I believe that those sources all go back to the original 1863 text compiled by Thomas Bellows, see below. There is a Simon Hunt that married Lucy Raymond in 1755- much later.
Simon's sister Ruth Hunt married Joseph Meriam, son of Joseph and Dorothy Brooks Meriam. Their marriage was not recorded either.
Mary Meriam, b. 1707, dau. of Joseph and Dorothy married a Simon Hunt.
Mary Hunt, w. of Simon died at age 84 on Nov. 19, 1790 (Concord VR) which would make her the correct age to be Mary Meriam above, and not Mary Raymond.
Findagrave lists Simon Hunt and wife Mary Meriam Hunt, but no further sources. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=24274097 ; http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=24273998
Any help finding marriage record or other proof on his wife's LNAB would be appreciated.
