I am the great-great-great-granddaughter of Abraham Isaac Jacob Rivers and Selah Samantha Manker Rivers. Their daughter Celia Margaret married my great-great-granddaddy James W. Russell when her first husband was killed during the War Between the States. Their son Rufus Dehone was my paternal great-granddaddy, and, although he died when Grandaddy was young, we have several good photos and stories of him. Any info on any of these fine people is greatly appreciated. Angie Russell Hunt

This Hunt family was related to the Hunts of Elbert Co. GA (orig. of VA and they were related to our Hunts going back to Virginia).

Hunt Family Your husband and I are distant "Hunt cousins." Thomas Hunt (m. Sarah Trippe Pope) was the s/o William and Elizabeth (Bass) Hunt. William Hunt was the bro./o my 3rd., gr gf., Judkins Hunt, Jr. (m Unity Hancock). Is you husband descended from Gen. Jesse Middleton (C.S.A.) and his 1st., wife Mary E. Carver (d/o Dr. Carver)? Could not find the Sarah (Rosser) Hunt you mentioned. Do you have her memorial number?. Do not know if Sarah Trippe (Pope) Hunt's family has a connection to the McCarthy family. There are other Hunts (Daniel & John R. Hunt ~ 1820 census) residing in Jones County that I'm sure were related, although I haven't found the connection and there is also a Daniel Rosser on the same census). The Hunts of Elbert County were related going back to Virginia. BTW, the name "Middleton" goes way back to the the Hunt of VA. Glad to met you!
wow! I am so pleased to 'meet' you. you are the first relative i have met from doing genealogical research, and it makes me very happy to connect. I am the g-g-g-g-grandson of Mr. Abraham Isaac Jacob Rivers and Selah Manker Rivers. I have read the story about the wagon ride from South Carolina to Falling Creek. It truly was an inspiring and spirit-lifting find to see it posted on the internet. If someone hadn't thought to write down and record that story we may never have been able to make that connection. I'm going to send you an email, so that we can keep in touch that way.
