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.

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

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.
