Joshua HUNT Jr. 07JUL1785NJ-23JUL1875WV

He m Sallie ROBBINS(1784TN-1864WV).

Joshua HUNT JR in the 1810 Dunkard,Greene.Co,PA Census(p.22) was living next to his mother.

He moved with wife, Sallie ROBBINS, to the Maidsville, Monongalia County, Virginia(WV) area around 1819 where he farmed till death(BUR:Bethel Cem. Maidsville).

In a Monongalia Co., VA deed dated 24MAR1819, Joshua, then of Greene County, PA, purchased for $50.00 the one twelfth part interest in the 192 1/2 acre estate of Barney HANEY, decsd., from Robert & Nancy DAVIS of Monongalia Co., VA.

On 31MAR1837, Joshua HUNT purchased 93 acres of land in Dunkard Twp., Greene Co. PA jointly(probably in the role of a co-signer to help out these STEPHENS relatives) with his neice's husband, Hiram STEPHENS( h/o Eliz. HUNT d/o Roger), from Christopher BREWER(Vol.8, p.255 LDS:#857248). The transaction involved a mortgage requiring payment of $250 01APR1839, $250 01APR1841, & $100 by 01APR1843. The land was bounded by that of Richard FURMAN, Daniel DONLEY, Daniel WILFORD, & Joseph WATSON.

On 07MAY1845, Christopher BREWER assigned the mortgage solely to Hiram STEPHENS for value received. (There was an entry to the Court of Common Pleas #34 on 02SEP1843 indicating that there may have been a legal dispute at this point.) Brewer may have removed to Westmoreland Co. PA.

(Harold HUNT uses different dates for Joshua Jr.: 17JUL1786-23FEB1875.)

In his will, Joshua HUNT JR estimated his land holdings at approximately 87 acres in the Maidsville WV area.
