From Daniel Hunt's Pension[4]

"And the said Daniel Hunt further states that when the British under Cornwallis were passing through North Carolina, they came to his Father's house, and killed or destroyed all the property of his said Father except the dwelling House; that at this time he the said Daniel on was in the Army commanded [by] General Rutherford; That his Father Jonathan Hunt was taken a prisoner by the British who being an old and infirm man and unable to travel as the enemies [enemy's] prisoner, was discharged by them in the course of one or two days; that in consequence of the distress and losses of his father, the said Daniel Hunt was permitted to return home as above stated, having been in service from the year 1779 to March 1781..."

Research Notes

The original profile said that he died in Randolph County. Find a Grave says Cana, Rowan (now Davie) County, where he is buried. The DAR pension application says Surry County. Cana didn't have a post master and probably didn't exist until 1875.
