Jean Hunt was born in 1932 in Gainesville, GA. She was the only daughter of Thomas Cleland Hunt and Eunice Dean Lord[1], [2] She grew up in Georgia, South Carolina, and California. During her childhood, she studied violin and piano and continued to enjoy piano during her life.

A graduate of Winthrop University (BA) and Furman University (MA) in psychology, she worked at Craig, Gaulden, Davis, Greenville, SC, Greenville High School, SC, Shriners Hospital, Greenville, SC, W. R. Grace, Duncan, SC, The University of NC, Chapel Hill, NC, Whitten Village, Clinton, SC, Angola Prison, Angola, LA, and The Louisiana State Hospital in Bossier City, LA.

Anthropology and Archeology were passions for her and she founded the Louisiana Mounds Society in the 1980s. Combining her work and her hobbies she conducted research into the use of Ogham (ancient writing) and communication with persons who were unable to communicate. She wrote veraciously as evidenced by her 1991 book, Tracking the Flood Survivors.

In 1994 she passed away from a post-operative infection, in Shreveport LA. Per her wishes, her children spread her ashes into the flood-swollen waters of the Red River.

Hunt DNA

  • R1b1a2 Descendant of the Hunt 14 through Esli Hunt, Sr.

Mitochondrial DNA

  • mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup could be H1b1-T16362C from her daughter's test. Her daughter's test, however, includes a heteroplasmy which means that Jean may actually have a different Haplogroup than her daughter. "Heteroplasmies are generally (but not always) quite recent mutations. Actually, heteroplasmies are mutations caught in the act of mutating – kind of like an insect in genetic amber – frozen in time in your generation." What is a Heteroplasmy and Why Do I care? - Roberta Estes
