Memucan Hunt,  1784 - 1787

 

A native of Virginia, Memucan Hunt settled in Granville County (now Vance) on a plantation. At the age of 41, in 1770, Hunt was chosen Sergeant-at-Arms of the North Carolina General Assembly and in 1773 elected as Representative to the Assembly from Granville County. When the spirit of independence began to rise in the restless colony, Hunt represented Granville County in the five Provincial Congresses. In 1777, with the War for Independence underway, the fiscal needs of the colony were among its greatest concerns. Hunt was appointed Treasurer of the Hillsborough district, one of six district treasurers in the State at that time. He continued to hold office in the General Assembly and in 1779 was elected to the State Senate, serving as a member of the Committee of Accounts.

 

In November 1783, the General Assembly, in session at New Bern, abolished the district treasurer offices and established the singular fiscal position of State Treasurer and elected Hunt to fill the post. He took office on January 1, 1784, at a salary of 500 pounds per year.

 

During his term in office, Hunt unwittingly honored fraudulent claims for military service stemming from the Revolutionary War, which resulted in both litigation and hearings by the General Assembly. While he was not charged with malfeasance, he was not re-elected. Hunt retired from State politics to Granville County, where he became a wealthy planter and served as justice of the peace until 1792.

 

At the time of his death in 1808, at age 79, Hunt owned nearly 16,000 acres of land, 22 slaves, two horses, four mares, 14 head of cattle and 33 hogs.

THE FILSON CLUB HISTORY QUARTERLY, Vol. 74, Spring 2000, No. 2, page 139

 

There was also a buffalo path going south from Harrodsburg that led to Knob Lick, which was located about a half mile northwest of the present Junction City.  From this point it would appear that the trace, and later a county road, led to Carpenter's Station, located about two miles west of the present Hustonville near Ky. 78.  The path continued westward, going along what is described in old surveys as "the Second South fork of the Rowling [sic] fork."  This water-course is apparently what is now called the Little South Fork of Rolling Fork.  After following this branch for several miles, the trail crossed over the head of Jones Fork, went down it to the mouth, then past the present town of Bradsfordsville.

 

Continuing to the southwest, the trail probably passed Salleetown and Spurlington and went along the Trace Fork of Little Pitman Creek skirting the present Campbellsville to the north.  The road then more or less followed Ky. 70 to near Greensburg, where it went down another Trace Creek to the crossing of Green River.  Afterwards it passed through or near the present villages of Grab, Pierce, Crailhope, Center, and Knob Lick on route to the Blue Springs.  The later is located on the south end of this sinking creek about ten miles east of Glasgow, near the Metcalf County line.

Notes for RACHEL TUNSTALL:

Per IGI record found on FamilySearch web site of LDS, Ambrose Hunt married Rachel Reed about 1789 in Greensburg, Creen Co., KY. (I don't think this is correct)  I believe this Ambrose Hunt was the Ambrose Hunt that was son of John W. and Catherine Hunt of Fayette Co.

 

 

Marriage Notes for AMBROSE HUNT and RACHEL TUNSTALL:

In all likelyhood this was a second marriage for Ambrose Hunt.  The ages of his children and the supposed age of Rachel make this nearly certain.  It is not proven that Rachel's last name was Tunstall, but family tradition says it is, and that is surported by naming thier first son Tunstall.  No record of this, or any, marriage has been found, other than a marriage between an Ambrose Hunt and Rachel Reed, circa 1789 in Green County, KY.  This was before Ambrose, son of Joseph, came to Kentucky.
