Description

A paper chronicling the research of an unnamed Genealogist into the Hunts of Pickens and Greenville Counties, SC, along with the information they found.

Notes on Hunt Paper 2

I was given two sets of papers. One set typed, 86 pages in total length, of which I have pp. 37- 86, (Hunt Paper 1) and another set of hand written papers 69 pages in total length (Hunt Paper 2). The first, typed paper, is the basis, it seems, for the second hand written paper and Both appear to be the basis of the diagram of the family tree, and my mother's handwritten papers. - M. Gaulden

Juxtaposed against the rambling Hunt Paper 1, Hunt Paper 2 is part essay and part raw data set down in an easy to follow format using roman numerals and english numbers to identify each generation. Inserted at appropriate times is transcribed legal documents with file and courthouse identification, or title and signature for letters.

The Paper has no title, date or author listed at any point. The author makes comments about interviews in the first person.

Though the xeroxed/mimeograph copied pages have no page numbers, I have inserted page numbers to help keep the pages together as well as adding Sections to keep track of the order of the paper (it was stapled in many different parts when it was given to me).

The information in this paper is very accurate. I have found very few mistakes, except for the "may be Esli's Dad" notation in the margin next to Capt. Thos. Hunt, Revolutionary Soldier (Hunt Paper 1 also wrongly assumes Capt. Thos. Hunt is Esli's Father but never goes so far as to say it).
