  My GG Grandfather lived in Otyumwa, Wapello County, Iowa.  His name was David Franklin HUNT, b) 27 Apr 1831 d) 27 Nov 1861.  I have not been able to confirm his State of birth, I believe it may have been IN or NC.  He was married Nancy Brown until his death in 1861.  He was struck and killed by lightening on the Des Moines river two months before his son  (my G Grandfather) David Freeman HUNT was born.  Nancy remarried a James WILSON after his death and moved to South Dakota.  David Franklin and Nancy arrived in Iowa with a 12 year old girl named Ellen HUNT.  I can not identify the relationship of Ellen.  Either Nancy gave birth to Ellen when she was very very young, or Ellen was a sibling or relative of David Franklin.  My family can not find any information on David Franklin Hunt prior to his arrival to Iowa.
looking for info on CLISBY ARRINGTON and family.  he was on the 1847 census at wapello co., iowa.
