A RECORD OF MARRIAGES
PERFORMED BY REVEREND NEHEMIAH HUNT
(1772-1860) OF WILTON AND AVON, MAINE

Contributed by Clarence A. Day, of Orono, Maine

The original record, as kept by Mr. Hunt, is in the possession in 1954 of one of his descendants, Mrs. Pearl Dow Loring of Orono, Maine.

In making the copy the contributor has attempted to give the spelling exactly as in the original. In some instances, because of stains, faded ink, or indistinct writing, he has not been absolutely sure of the name. In these instances the uncertainty has been dictated by the use of a question mark.

Rev. Nehemiah6 Hunt(William5, Jeremiah4, Samuel3, Samuel2, William1) was born in Dunstable, N. H. (presumably), 3 Jan. 1772, and died in Avon, Maine (presumably), 30 Dec. 1860. He married, 12 Jan. 1792, Joanna Mooars. Their ten children were: Betsy, Joanna, Noah Johnson, Nehemiah, Polly, Esther, Hephzibah, Charles V., Lura Livermore, and Sylvester Strickland.

Mr. Hunt lived for some years in Wilton, but moved about 1826 to Avon. Many of his marriages were of people in the towns of Avon, Phillips, Temple, Strong, Salem, and Berlin (now part of Phillips), an area in Franklin County from which not many vital records have found their way into print.
