Birth: Jun. 22, 1813
Death: Aug. 5, 1862

Husband of Abby Taber; father of Sarah Gordon Hunt Snow. He first married Sarah M. Gordon (daughter of Susan Marsh and Thomas Pope Gordon) on 1 Nov. 1837. After Sarah's death in 1847 he married her cousin, Abby Taber. He died in 1862 in Minneapolis, Minnesota where he had gone for health reasons.
He was a son of Benjamin and Abigail Hunt, born in Little Compton, R. I., June 12, 1813. When very young he came to New Bedford and in a short time found a position as clerk, in the employ of Henry Taber. Mr. Taber was quick to recognize the young man's sterling good sense and qualities, and soon admitted him to partnership, together with his son William Taber, the firm being changed to Henry Taber & Company.
