Braswell, Judah and William Hunt IV

From Ann H. Kahn of Sebring, FL, published in Braswell Branches, Vol. 9, No. 3, Summer 2000:

I connect with Judah BRASWELL m. William HUNT (IV), son Alexander and daughter Nancy. William IV was s/o Henry and Agnes HUNT. My Alexander was born about 1760 in Edgecombe Co., North Carolina. I have proven his service in DAR.

William was married to Ann Cloe at his death. In 1790 Judah HUNT was in Granville Co., North Carolina; William IV and children were counted in Robeson Co., North Carolina."

From Nona: My Lucreasy BRASWELL was probably born ca. 1750 (she married William WILLIAMS ca. 1778) and Lucreasy had a sister named Judah who was probably born by 1760 and was married to a Mr. HUNT before 1779. Judah had children Alexander and Nancy.

Following are excepts from Ann’s application for membership in the National Society of Colonial Dames, user with her permission.

Dempsey HUNT, son of Alexander HUNT was born about 1760 Nash Co., North Carolina; died at Moore Co., North Carolina before 1830.
