Biography[1]

"Simon4 Hunt (Isaac3-2, William1) was born at Sudbury, Massachusetts, on 20 April 1715, according to the published of that town, although he was "in the 15th year of his age" in July 1728 when he chose John Fletcher of Concord to be his guardian and he was "in the 66th year of his age" when he died at Concord, Massachusetts, on 9 August 1777, both records giving a more probably birth date of 1712-1713. He was "of Concord" when he married first, at Weston, Massachusetts, on 28 November 1734, Submit Hagar, daughter of William3 Hagar (William2-1) and Mary (Flagg). Submit was baptized at Watertown, Massachusetts, on 10 May 1713 and died at Concord between 26 October 1737, when her last child was born, and 20 January 1742/3, when Simon married secondly, at Concord, Anna (Blood) Barron. She was born at Concord on 30 March 1712 and died there in December 1794, aged 83, daughter of Josiah Blood (Robert2, James1) and Mary (Tony), and widow of Thomas Barron, whom she had married in Concord on 5 September 1739. Thomas Barron's death is not recorded in the published Concord Vital Records, but the fact that there is no other eligible "Anna Barron" in Concord and the fact that Anna and Simon named their first son Thomas are suggestive.
"Simon is listed in the DAR Patriot Index as having served as a Private in the Revolution, although the person who joined using Simon as her ancestor failed to find his first marriage. It is doubtful that Simon is correctly identified. The service more likely belongs to Simon5 Hunt, son of Simon4 Hunt (John3, Nehemiah2, William1) and Mary (----), who was born at Concord on 8 April 1734. The Simon of this article would have been over 60 years of age at the time of the Revolution."
"Simon made his will on 11 January 1777, leaving bequests to dearly beloved wife Anna; grandson Thomas Hunt, son of eldest son Thomas, deceased; eldest daughter Hannah Hunt; second daughter Submit Hosmer; third daughter Mary Health; fourth daughter Anna Billing; and youngest son Thaddeus Hunt. Thaddeus was named executor, and the will was witnessed by Daniel Hoar, Ephraim Brooks and Stephen Hosmer. The will was proved 2 September 1777.

  1. Hannah Hunt, b 19 Mar 1735/6, d. Concord, 20 Feb 1820, "unmarried: aged 84." She was probably named for Simon's aunt Hannah (Hunt) Fletcher) who may have adopted him.
