There is no authoritative treatment of my line of descent from this family in print. By now the standard work, T. B. Wyman Jr., Genealogy of the Name and Family of Hunt (Boston: John Wilson & Son, 1862–3), is antiquated, and does not incorporate a comprehensive survey of original records or the results of more recent research on related families. For example the most successful attempt to identify Ephraim’s wife appears in Eugene Cole Zubrinsky, Abiah³ Carpenter of Warwick, Rhode Island, and His Family: With Additional Material Concerning William¹ Carpenter of Providence, Rhode Island, and William² Carpenter of Rehoboth, Massachusetts, New England Historical and Genealogical Register 159 (2005): 43-68, at 63. The PDF essay linked below attempts to resolve these problems. Although I necessarily pursue only one child in each family, I also attempt to provide basic chronological information on all of my ancestors’ other children and their spouses.
