    Notes 
    • Jonathan, "2nd son", b. ca. 1717; removed to Rowan Co., North Carolina
      among the early settlers there; had three wives and 19 children before
      his death in North Carolina in 1783. He was a Patriot of considerable
      importance in North Carolina, served in French and Indian War and Rev.
      War, having the rank of Col. in the NC Militia. (Details on Jonathan and
      his family need not be stated here; Mrs. Beverly Yount of Indiana
      published in 1956 a magnificent genealogy of Jonathan Hunt and his
      descendants containing some 219 pages.) (I now have a much more complete
      genealogy of the children of Col. Jonathan by his three wives; (1) Mary
      Smith, (2) Isabel Hampton; (3) Margaret Lawrence. See my 1994
      publication, "A Corrected Genealogy of Col. Jonathan Hunt (1716-1782) and
      his Rowan Co., North Carolina Siblings and Their Descendants").--Mitchell
