Daniel Hunt married Hannah Burnham 15 Feb. 1740 at Lebanon, Conn.

“Daniel Hunt, son of Ebeneezer and Hannah (Clark) Hunt, b. Aug. 17, 1711; moved to Sharon, Conn., where he was one of the first settlers. Sharon was named and incorporated October 1739. Sedgewick’s History of Town of Sharon describes Daniel as one of the first settlers who later moved to Vermont. No Hunts are found in Sharon, Conn., in the 1790 U.S. Census, but two are found in the town of Litchfield who are presumed to be the elder Daniel (2 males 16 or over and 2 females) and the other ‘Daniel 2nd’ his son Daniel, 1 male over 16, 2 males under 16, and 2 females. Daniel’s son Simeon purchased land in Tunbridge, Vt. In 1789 at which time he was ‘of Sharon, Conn.’ and additional lands in 1793 at which time he was ‘of Tunbridge, Vt.’ Two Daniels with large families and Simeon appear in Tunbridge in 1800 U.S. Census of Vermont. The wife of Daniel Hunt was Hannah ____ according to Vermont Vital Records and her gravestone in Hunt Cemetery at Tunbridge, Vt., where the date of death is illegible. A death record in Vermont Vital Records says that Hannah Hunt, wife of ‘Daniel Hunt, Jr.’ died April __, 18?9 at age 87. This should probably read Daniel Hunt, Sr. Her son Daniel also apparently m. a girl named Hannah who would be the Hannah Hunt, wife of ‘Daniel Hunt, Jnr.’ who died at Tunbridge Dec. 12, 1802, aged 44, per gravestone and Vermont Vital Records. “Daniel died at Tunbridge Oct. 1, 1807 at age 99 years…” [2]
