Birth: Oct. 7, 1805
Albany County
New York, USA
Death: Oct., 1849
California, USA

Joseph Clark Hunt was born on Oct 7, 1805 in Albany, NY, to Abijah & Mary Ann (Dunn) Hunt. He married Mary Susannah Knapp about 1830 in New York and they had 7 children. Joseph actually died on the way to or at the California Gold Hunt, accompanied by two of his nephews Abijah and Andrew Hunt, who brought word of his death back to Illinois. His exact date of death and burial location are unknown, but he is memorialized on the double gravestone at Brunswick Cemetery for his sons Alexander and Clark who died during an 1852 flu epidemic. The gravestone says that he died in October 1849 but it is more likely that he died sometime between then and October 1851.
