Ann was born about 1735. Ann Hansen ... She passed away about 1835.[1]

Named as Thomas' wife in Bedford Co. land sale to Benjamin Clardy and to John Hook; also in claims for reparation due to provisions "given" to the revolutionary Army in Bedford Co. VA possibly while Thomas was imprisoned.

Henson/Hanson last name at birth for Ann, wife of Thomas, is speculative.

The children of Dr. Thomas Hunt and Ann (Henson) of Virginia are referred to as The Hunt 14. There are only 14 children listed in the Jackson Family Bible for Dr. Thomas Hunt of Bedford Virginia. DO NOT ADD CHILDREN To These Parents

Research Notes

There appear to be two different families misattributions. The family of Dr. Thomas Hunt of Bedford County, Virginia who married and Ann (presumably Henson) has been incorrectly connected to the Family of Thomas Elwood Hunt of Westchester, NY, who married Ann (presumably Mattingly). Profiles for the Thomas Elwood Hunt need to be cleaned up and merged together. DNA of Thomas Elwood's descendants do not match the Dr. Thomas Hunt family descendants of Virginia Genetically - YDNA.

Do you have any sourcing for your peter that might help with the genealogical trail?

The name Elwood has not been associated with Dr. Thomas Hunt of Bedford County Virginia, nor has the last name of his wife Anne been associated with the name Mattingly. If there is documentary evidence of this name for Ann it would smash down a brick wall which has eluded researchers for centuries! Please post if there is anything.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Anne by comparing test results with other carriers of her mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Anne:

Mags - does this profile need to be protected? If so, are the profiles currently attached as children correct? (If yes to PPP but no to correct attached profiles, please let me know when to add PPP, which should be after any additions/removals of attached profiles).

Cheers, Liz

She has been ppp'd because of the mess stated on her profile. I would hate to clear the mess I have had to clear twice before they were all (parents and children) ppp'd, again. Mags

Thanks for replying. I'll re-lock them and add the project as a manager... did you ever contact William about Phoebe? Nevermind, I'll assume you didn't since she's not managed by them. I'll do that for your too.

done. I have re-locked all the profiles you unlocked during the Clean-a-Thon and also added the US Southern Colonies Project as manager to support PPP (except for Phoebe, who was born outside the scope of the project; I added Virginia Project as the manager for her profile).

US Southern Colonies Project - I don't believe Mags filled out the Managed Profile Request form for any of them, so Anne & all her children will need to be added to the Google sheet manually (sorry about that).

The 13 children now managed by US Southern Colonies Project are

  1. Jesse Hunt Hunt-1060
  2. Uriah Hunt Hunt-1076
  3. Esli Hunt Sr. Hunt-1091
  4. Mary (Hunt) Walton Hunt-1064
  5. Thomas Hunt Hunt-1044
  6. William Hunt Hunt-1090
  7. Asenath Hunt Hunt-1048
  8. Joel Hunt Hunt-1033
  9. Peter Hunt Hunt-1053
  10. Elizabeth (Hunt) Sherrill Hunt-1063
  11. Moses Hunt Hunt-1080
  12. John Hunt Hunt-1059
  13. Benjamin Hunt Hunt-1040

Hansen-7899 and Hensen-1 appear to represent the same person because: Merging the two ann Hensens - is there documentation regarding her name also being Mattingly? Be huge breakthrough if there is!
