55 "History of Bedford, Somerset and Fulton Counties, Pennsylvania", published in Chicago by Water, Watkins & Co. in 1884, pg 362:

"The Millers of Milligan's cove are very numerous, and are reckoned among the most enterprising and influential citizens of the township. They are descendants from Elias Miller, an early pioneer. John Miller, a brother of Elias, and, like him, a soldier in the revolutionary war, also settled in the cove. His son John - known to all the early residents as Big John, for the fact that he was tall, and weighed over three hundred pounds - lived and died on the place which afterward became the Carpenter and Baker farms.

Elias Miller was a native of Loudoun county, Virginia, and was present at the surrender of Lord Cornwallis, at Yorktown. Shortly after the war he came to Bedford county and lived on Dunning's creek, whence he was often obliged to take shelter in the Bedford fort during the Indian hostilities. He afterward moved to the cove, married Mary Leiberger, and spent the remainder of his days on the place where his grandson, J. R. Miller, now lives. He lived to be about eighty-six, and was remarkably strong and healthy until the very last. He and his brother John located in the woods, and were afterward joined by other members of the family. They had a shop, and carried on weaving. Their brother Peter lived on the farm now occupied by A. M. Miller. Another brother, Abraham, moved to Somerset, became sheriff of that county, and officiated in that capacity at the celebrated hanging of the Frenchman.

Elias Miller had two sons, Abraham and John E., both of whom lived in the cove. Abraham was a minister of the Christian church many years. John E. lived on the old homestead and died there in 1876, at the age of sixty-eight. His wife was Hannah Carpenter. They reared a family of eleven children, nine of whom are still living: Michael C., A. M., Elijah, Eve (Martin), Mary (deceased), Jacob (deceased), Ephraim, Simon, Amanda (Swartzwalter), Hannah (Diehl), and J.R."

57 "Hugh White McCaleb (McKillip) married Elizabeth Holbrook on August 13, 1803 in Stokes Co., North Carolina. Hugh was the son of Andrew McKillip and Elizabeth Lowery and Elizabeth was the oldest daughter of James Holbrook and Barbara Fair. He was named in the will of his grandmother, Isobel Lowery, dated 11 Dec 1809, probated in 1812, and that of his father Andrew Mckillip in June 1810. He signed a power of attorney in Logan Co., Ky. in 1818, when he sold land that he had inherited from his father to his brother-in-law, Michael Fair. From there, he moved by way of Lauderdale Co., Tn. and Morgan Co., Alabama, to Fayette Co., Alabama. The family lived for several years in Morgan Co., near the city of Falkville. Three of the children were married there. The move to Fayette County probably occurred in the mid 1830's." McCaleb, Hugh White (I387)

59 "In "Hunts of Tennessee", Mrs Evelyn Mitchell Madry of Atlanta, Ga. states Ralph Hunt was b. 1699 and died 1769--a discrepancy from the dates quoted--from Bill & Clara and from IGI. He bought 140 A. in Hanover Co.,Va. in 1723 & 132 A. on North side of Fishing Creek (Hanover Co.) on 6 Oct 1746 from Seth Pettypoole of Lunenburg Co. Memucan Hunt Howard, a great grand-son, gives the dates of birth and death and the family of his grandfather, Memucan, whom he states is the "third son". Fleetwood Jones states "Ralph and his brother James lived in Hanover Co. until James left for what is the present day Charlotte. Brother Joseph and James' son Charles lived in King William Co. prior to moving near James. Ralph who had purchased land the same day as James never left Hanover. Ralph's date of death comes from Mormon record # F502677. Sources state Ralph & Dina had ten children. I have more here, but none of Ralph's children are actually documented and more work is needed on this family. Bill Hunt, of Fairport, doubts that Christopher is a son, and Clara Hunt Miller doubts that William with wife, Rosa, is a son; however, all agree that he had a son William. Ralph also had land in Henrico Co. See Catherine Gheesling's records for more on this man. Records on proposed children of this man should be checked very carefully, as it is almost impossible to document them." Hunt, Ralph (I441)

63 "In the summer of 1690 an expedition was fitted out in Massachusetts, with a contingent from New Hampshire, to protect the more eastern settlements, in which Nathaniel Ladd was on of the volunteers from Exeter, N. H. On the 22d of September the party landed at Maquoit, near Cape Elizabeth, and soon fell into an ambush, and in the fight which ensued were compelled to retreat to their vessels. These being aground, the Indians made a bold effort to take them, but after a hard fight they were repulsed, with a loss to the English of eight killed and twenty-four wounded. Of the last was Nathaniel Ladd, who died of his wounds at Exeter, N. H., Aug. 11th, 1691." Ladd, Nathaniel (I3461)

77 "Joseph Ballard is most famous for his involvement in bringing the 1692 Salem Witch Trials to Andover. Eventually, forty Andover residents were accused of witchcraft, many of whom were jailed, and several of whom were hanged. Andover's involvement began in July 1692, near the height of the witch craze. Joseph's first wife, Elizabeth, came down with a fever. When the doctor could not cure her, Joseph asked that two of the "afflicted" girls from Salem come to a town meeting to identify the witches who caused it. The girls laid their hands on various blindfolded people (the famous "touch" test). Those who "caused" the girls to suffer when touched were accused of witchcraft." Ballard, Joseph Senior (I4178)

89 "Many reseachers believe Christopher and Caty to be the parents of John Hunt who married Martha Jenkins.

This is based on Christopher Hunt being in Virginia, Granville Co. NC and Anson Co. NC in close proximity to various Blassingham families. Later a James Blassingham family was closely situated to John Hunt and Martha Jenkins in Bracken Co. KY.

The best link is that James Hunt a possible brother of John Hunt states he was born in 1765 in Granville Co. NC and moved with his father to Hanging Rock Creek now on the border of Kershaw and Lancaster Counties SC shortly before the Revolution. He later moved to Sumner Co TN where his daughter Elizabeth married Richard Senter and moved to Wayne Co. IL, which was part of and now next to Edwards Co. IL, where John Hunt settled and died.

I believe Christopher is a possible parent but this is not proved due to lack of any direct evidence or surviving records."
