In Col. Jonathan Hunt's will dated June 19, 1782, he gave "to my beloved sons, Andrew Hunt, Charles Hunt, Wilson Hunt, Levi Hunt and George Hunt, one entry of land, containing 400 acres, lying at the mouth of Ebbitts Creek, and my right of land at Kentuckers [Kentucky], to be equally divided amongst the six."
"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..."
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.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Jonathan by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Jonathan:
