Stymied at Thomas Hunt (Sr.) (born ca 1787 NC, died ca 1856 Rusk County, Texas) in our search for Hunt ancestors, a recent break with y-dna testing has confirmed that our family story of a McFarland (MacFarlane, McFaddin, etc) who was either adopted by a Hunt family or assumed a Hunt family name after living with them is indeed correct. The dna trail leads to common ancestors with McFarlands and not Hunts. Our closest common ancestor matches leads us to McFarlands living in Orange County, North Carolina in the 1700's.
The search for parents and other ancestors has been followed by various family members since the 1950's. Now we seek to carry that back in time. This website will attempt to list what we know, what is new, and what we re-examine.
