Dear Ms. Griggs,
Hi, my name is Eric Hunt and I have been conducting family research for many years.
My Hunt family has been traced from New York in 1859 to Mohill County Leitrim Ireland in 1726.
There was another Hunt family from Limerick/Tipperary that oral family history says we are related to. So far we can not prove the connection. We have been attempting to find male Limerick Hunt family descendants to conduct DNA testing.
The results of the testing are posted on the internet
I saw the African American lives documentary and really enjoyed it so I checked out the webpage. By pure coincidence I noticed your posting on the website.
Fitzmaurice Hunt's will of 1822 is the same Fitzmaurice that is listed on the Hunt family web page under the Hunt's of Limerick link.
If we eventually prove a connection then Fitzmaurice and all of his descendants would be distant cousins.
I wonder if you would be kind enough to provide me with a copy of that will. I will gladly pay for copy and postage fees.
