Although a considerable amount of my own original research has gone into this project, I also must acknowledge the help, hints, clues and encouragement that I have received from many people. Without their influence and help, this project would never have been brought to its present state. Some of those on whom I have leaned are:
William Nathan Smith (1896 - 1977)
According to the best information I have, Uncle Willie, as my mother called him, was the person who compiled the early hand written records I have on our Smith and Hunt families. These records, though sometimes difficult to read, have provided invaluable clues in tracking down Smith and Hunt cousins.
Karey (Clapsaddle) DeNeui
She provided an update on the descendants of William Nathan Smith.
Noel Rex Hunt(1910 - 1993)
Noel did a lot of research on the Hunt family including both ancestors and descendants of Jacob Hunt. Many of the descendants of Charles Eben Hunt on this site are based on his work. Noel's son Jon kindly provided copies of some of Noel's research.
Linda sent me a number of family group sheets on her work on the descendants of Leonard Hunt, Rosa May Hunt, and Calvin Hunt. Thanks to Linda for her research and for sharing her records.
I would also like to thank the countless others whose hints I may have forgotten which nevertheless may have lead to some major find. Please forgive my oversight if I failed to recall your contribution.
