Alanson was his name in 1840 Franklin County Census. Lancen and Lance in later Census. Only seen in 1840, 1850 and 1860 Census. No death information, or estimated death year. No known children and no known prior marriages before Mary Crowden.
Marriage record to Mary Crowden "The Hunts (copied from a document hand-written by Bessie Smith Hunt)
"All I could find out about Edwards *(her husband)* family was their great-uncle John married a widow woman at Winchester, Tennessee and his brother, David Hunt came across the mountain to visit his brother John and married his borther's step-daughter, *(Lucinda)*, who was the mother of Ed's father, Anthony Hunt; Lee Hunt, Thomas Hunt, Will Hunt and Jenny Hunt."
My added comments are indicated by *( )* - to help interpret it. Bessie was Ed Hunt's wife and is seen in the family picture found at bottom of "Hence Layne's Pig Just Dropped Dead" story by Jackie Layne Partin. Just Google - Hence Layne's Pig Just - and it should be near the top of hits. Scroll to bottom to find pictures included. All of these folks are my family by blood or marriage.
