1846 - 1917
Zachary Taylor Hunt
My great-great Grandfather, Zachary Taylor Hunt, was a prominent one-armed lawyer in Madisonville, Monroe County, Tennessee. He was born in 1846, joined the Confederate Army just before age 16, was captured twice, went to California via Panama, lost his right arm in a threshing accident, returned to Madisonville, was admitted to the bar in 1876 and died in 1917 at almost 71 years of age.

The Hunt family is said to have owned some caverns in the area that were flooded by a lake. I would be interested in any further information anyone might be willing to share. Email Steve Mickelson.
The map is on a high gloss textured paper which appears to have a fine silk weave - perhaps, oil paper? It was found folded and does show crease marks. There are some slight age stains there and about. There is one very small hole where the map was folded, otherwise it is in good condition. It appears to be hand drawn using the color blue for the Little Tennesee River, red for trees and shrub and black for elevations of the mountain.
