George Hunter was the first settler on the farm where D. Rice now lives [ed. ca. 1879]. He was a prominent citizen, with decided traits of character. He was supervisor of his town, and always interested in public affairs. At the election in 1840, he, being a conservative, refused to vote because he did not want to deposit his ballot with Democrats and Whigs; finally he deposited his vote in a box made for the especial purpose of receiving it. He died on the same farm, in 1845. He married Deborah Silsbee. His sons were Harvey, Harrison, Horatio, Horace, and Henry; the last of whom studied law with Judge Walles [ed. Welles], of Penn Yan, and practiced at Rochester, where he was city attorney, and where he died.

The daughters were Maria, Julia, Emily, Sallie, Mary, and Eliza, who married the Rev. Daniel Russell.
