Joseph Hunt, the husband of Betsy Fay, was the son of John Hunt and Mary Palmer. There is a short biography of John in the History of Hardwick:
HUNT, JOHN, s. of Isaac of Sudbury, grandson of Isaac of Concord, and great-grandson of William of Concord, the emigrant ancestor, b. 12 Feb. 1711, was one of the earliest inhabitants of Hk. (having previously res. a few years in Grafton), and by w. Mary had Samuel, b. 27 Sep. 1736; Moses, b. 18 Dec. 1738, d. 20 June 1747; Hannah, b. 22 Ap. 1741, m. Nathan Wheeler 1 July 1762; Aaron, b. 18 Mar. 1744; Mary, b. 13 Oct. 1746, m. James Wright 18 June 1766; John, b. 31 Jan. 1749-50; Moses, b. 28 Oct. 1756; Joseph, b. 8 Dec. 1759, m.

JOHN the f. res three quarters of a mile northerly from the Common, at the place marked "Dr. Wardwell" on the R. Map, long famous as the Willis tavern-stand; here he kept a tavern and cultivated a farm. During the Revolutionary War, his house was frequented by soldiers on the march to and from the army; the small-pox was prevalent; and through fear of becoming infected, he went to a pest-house in New Braintree, was vaccinated, died 14 Feb. 1778, and was buried in an orchard at the angle of the N.Br. road, a few rods south of the former residence of Col. Stephen Fay.
