10.  LDS.  Ancestral File and IGI (online). IGI has the marriage record; nothing else as of 1 Nov 99.

The question has been raised whether Samuel and Lydia (DEVINEY) HUNTER are George's parents, perhaps because of the presence of a widow Lydia Hunter in Christian Co. in 1820.  It does not appear, however, that George and Christina are living with this Lydia.

1 female 45 or over in or bef. 1775 = Lydia
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25; therefore, any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  By subtracting the number in column three from the number in column four, you can create an age class "19-25."
