Hunt Genealogy: Indiana
Some of my Hunt ancestors were members of The Society of Friends (Quakers). I have recorded all of the Hunt Familys I have found in Indiana from The Abstracts of the Society of Friends in Indiana by Willard Heiss through the Indiana Historical Society, Indianapolis. There are six parts.If you dont find all six parts,please check back. I am working on getting them all finished.

If . . . any of our members fall into either of these practices. . . and cannot be reclaimed by futher labour (The Monthly Meeting) should proceed to disown them."Discipline(1819)

And if the purport is judged to be suitable to the occasion, the party may present it to the Monthly Meeting, and stay till it is read; and after time given for a solid pause, should withdraw before either that, or any other business, is proceded upon.
