6. Abner2 HUNT (Jacob1 HUNT) was born on 18 Aug 1791 in Massachusetts, USA. He died on 17 Jan 1876 in Northfield, Summit Co., Ohio, most likely.
Information about Abner Hunt was found in the biography of his son, Calvin Hunt in the History of Summit County, Ohio:

C. HUNT , farmer: P. O. Northfield. Calvin Hunt is the youngest of a family of eleven children, whose parents were Abner and Betsy (Johnson) Hunt. The names of the children born [to] them were Lovina, Almira, Nancy, Abner, William, Norman, Russel, Marshall, Hannah, and Calvin, [Biography said eleven children but listed only ten.]all of whom lived to be men and women. Abner Hunt was born in Massachusetts Aug. 18, 1791; wife born in same State in 1788. Abner was a son of Jacob Hunt, who was a soldier in the war of 1812 [Revolutionary War]. To him were born children as follows: Jacob, Thomas, John, Sallie, and Hannah. Abner Hunt came West in 1817, remaining one year on Tinker's Creek in Cuyahoga Co.; the year following, came to this township, where he rented land several years; coming here poor, had but little means to do with. March 1825, located in the north part of the township on Lot 72, purchased 38 acres of Dorsey Viers; no improvements at the time of purchase. Ten years afterward, he added 14 acres more, which was the date of Calvin's birth, which occurred Oct. 13, 1835, on the same farm where he now resides, which his father first purchased, and remained on the same until his death, which took place Jan. 17, 1876; his wife "passed over" Oct. 1, just two years previously. Both of them were members of the Methodist Episcopal Church ere they came to this State, and were among the first members who united with the church at the Center at the time of its organization. Mr. Hunt was an Old-Line Whig, and one of the esteemed citizens of his township... ... Mr. Hunt [Abner], the father of Calvin, had, at the time of his death, fifty-four grandchildren and forty-six great grandchildren.An abstract of his will (Summit Co. Will Book 4, Will 175, page 516, reads as follows:
HUNT, Abner of Northfield Twp.; Dated 28 September 1875; Probated 7 February 1878; daughters: Hannah Butterfield, Lovina Hunt, , Betsy Breen; sons: Marshall, Norman, William, Russel, Abner and Calvin; daughter-in-law Ruth Ann Hunt; Exec: A. K. Richey; Wit: H. or A. R. Richey and Elizabeth B. Richey.

He was married to Betsy JOHNSON (daughter of Billy JOHNSON and Levina PARMENTER) in 1812 in Charlemont, Massachusetts, USA. An alternate marriage record suggests they married in Whitingham, Vermont, on 15 March 1813. The family of Abner HUNT appeared on the 1820 U.S . Census in Northfield Twp., Summit Co., Ohio. Ten years later they were no doubt in the same physical location. However, they appeared on the 1830 U.S. Census in Northfield, Portage Co., Ohio, reflecting the changes of boundaries of the Ohio counties at the time. In 1840 the county boundary had been moved again and they appeared on the census, still in Northfield Twp., but this time back in Summit Co. Abner and Betsy appeared on the 1850 U.S. Census again in Northfield Twp., Summit Co., Ohio. Betsy JOHNSON was born on 19 Dec 1793 in Charlemont, Massachusetts, USA. She died on 1 Oct 1873 in Northfield, Summit Co., Ohio. Abner HUNT and Betsy JOHNSON had the following children:
