He was born in Minneapolis, MN on August 26, 1874.  

Horace D. Hunt is listed in the Minneapolis, Minnesota Directories, 1889-91 as a border at  613 10th avenue S. and in the 1909 directory as a salesman working for The Builders Hardware Co.

He married Lillian Bell Barton in Minneapolis, MN,  on April 17, 1920.  Bertha Pearson wrote to her mother Julia Hunt Pearson in April 1920: "...We rec'd your card this morn.  But was somewhat surprised at the news, my! Who was the lucky girl we think she sure was a prize winner when she gets Horace!" She was refering to her first cousin Horace. Lillian was born in Wisconsin on December 27, 1892.  Her parents were Thomas B.  Barton and Mary E. Dawes.

Lillian had been a school teacher near South Haven, MN in 1910. By 1919 was employed by the Warner Hardware store in South Haven.. They removed to Waterloo, Black Hawk Co. IA in 1925. Where Lillian operated the Circular Letter Shop, a multigraphing and mailing concern, and was a public stenographer from 1927 to 1935.

30. Earl Moses Hunt

(DeWitt Clinton4 Horace Stoughton3, Elijah2, Gad1)
He was born in Minneapolis, MN on August 3, 1882. 

He married Elva Mae Williams in Minneapolis, MN on June 8, 1904. Elva Mae was born in Indiana. She was a school teacher and a piano student at Julliard. They were living Mason City, Cerro Gordo, IA, as per the 1920 census, where Earl's occupation was 'stationery engineer'. Their 2 young children are not found with them on this census, perhaps because the couple were having marital problems.

Kristine Hunt Fitzsimmons wrote to me of her grandfather: "Earl was a railroad agent and when the Treasury Dept. took over that function, he automatically became an FBI agent. The family moved west to Garden Grove, CA around 1920. Earl and Elva divorced shortly after the move west. Grandma, my dad [Kenneth] and sister Twila stayed in Garden Grove on about 5 acres they called "The Ranch". Elva's parents moved from their farm in South Dakota to help Elva raise the children. Earl moved to Washington and continued his work as an FBI agent." and "I remember him visiting us for a few days around 1950 or 51. He was a handsome man with white hair. We visited him in 1956 when I was 8 years old, but I don't remember much about that visit other than he had a really old car. Dad asked him why he didn't get a new car and his reply was, "Nobody notices an old man in an old car." I guess he was still doing surveillance for the FBI at that time. He would have been around 75 then. "

Elva died in 1966 in Garden Grove, CA.

Earl remarried in 1957. Ironically his second wife was also named Elva.

Earl died November 24, 1966 in  Seattle, WA, at 84 years of age.  Burial is in Edmonds, WA

By 1920, the family is living in Onondaga Co., Syracuse City, NY. He is a toolmaker in a factory. On the 1930 census Theodore lists his occupation as a toolmaker in a washing machine company.
