Very little is known of Thomas. Orlin mentions his date of birth and his marriage to "Ellen DuBois." The name of his wife was actually "Eleanor" or "Elanor." Eleanor was born on 9/11/1798 and died on 4/12/1877. She married Thomas, "a School Teacher from Brimfield, Mass." on 11/29/1823. There is a book about the DuBois family that provides a lot of information about the first and second generation of their descendants, and makes the remark "The whole family were consumptive, though the father died of acute disease at 68, and the mother of old age at 79." (from Documents and genealogical chart of the family of Benjamin Du Bois, of Catskill, New York, compiled by Anson Du Bois and James G. Du Bois, 1878, pp. 80-81.)
   
The marriage of Nancy Ann Fay and John Romayne Hunt is included in the DuBois book and in “The History of Neosho and Wilson Co. Kansas”. Their descendants can be tracked through census records in most cases. The lines are also given in an ancestry tree, "The Hunt Family," created by Roy Hunt. He included some source material, but he has a couple of items for which he gives no source. One is the mention of a sixth child for John and Nancy, Thomas Edwin Hunt. The Kansas book mentions four children; the DuBois book mentions five. I have seen absolutely no evidence for a sixth; and he appears in no census. Second, Roy Hunt calls the fifth child "Charles Wilson." In the census, he appears first as Willard; and from then on as Wilson. No census that I found mentions a “Charles Wilson.” The second son was named Charles Theodore. He was born in 1846, and is listed as “Charles” in 1850 and 1860. In fact, in 1860, the list of children includes BOTH Charles, age 13, and Willard, age 6. The birth dates make it clear that ‘Willard’ is actually ‘Wilson.’ I have listed the fifth son as “Wilson.”
