William was a Friend (Quaker)

A deed uncovered in the Maryland State Archive signed by William on 25 Oct 1746 coupled with the transfer certificate of his daughter where he is deceased dated 27 Nov 1746 pinpoints his date of death between these two documents and places his death in Prince George's, Maryland. Specific citations will be added. T Stanton

Research Notes

The well-reasoned research (see here) of Roger D. Hunt (2011) would appear to show that William Hunt who married Mary Woolman was born in England and arrived in the colony late 1718 or early 1719. This is supported by his transfer certificate at Abington Monthly Meeting. Further research is underway. T Stanton Quakers Project, 6 Apr 2022.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with William 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 some percentage of DNA with William:

There appear to be some issues with this profile and the familial connections with it. Quakers and Pennsylvania projects are having a look. The father of the son William attached here died when William was 12 which was about 1745 and his mother died before his father. The Hinshaw citation on this profile does not appear to pertain to this man and a few links are no longer valid. If any of the PMs want to jump in on the research please reply to this Comment. Thanks for your help. T Stanton, Quakers Project.

Apologies, the Hinshaw citation is there--the second one for a person with the same name.

Hunt-7018 and Hunt-29 appear to be the same person. Hunt-1019 is the father of 7018/29.
I approved the merge of Hunt-29. Now we are waiting on the other managers. So letÂ’s merge-please.

Hunt-7018 and Hunt-29 appear to represent the same person because: Same name, same wife
posted by Bob Tonsmeire
7018 and 29 need to be merged. Same person, same wife, same child.

This page and this link http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~huntpage/robert%20hunt0001.htm#id71 both state that William was born in England, So why does the entry say he was born in New Jersey?

Hunt-11653 and Hunt-7018 are not ready to be merged because: Many differences
posted by Carol Miller
Hunt-11653 and Hunt-7018 appear to represent the same person because: Please evaluate these two children with same given name and similar/close birth to same parents. One is unsourced, needs sources and merging if duplicate, or removal if incorrect parent(s). Thank you.
