One of the prosperous agriculturists of Morning Sun township is William P. Hunt, who was born in Louisa county

county, Indiana, and the mother of Maryland. They were among the pioneer settlers of Louisa county, where the father
engaged in agricultural pursuits and where they passed away.
William P. Hunt has spent his entire life in Louisa county, in whose common schools he obtained his education.

as one of the successful and substantial agriculturists of his township.
Mr. Hunt married Miss Mamie E. Nelson of Ringgold county, Iowa, whose parents are both now deceased. He gives his
political support to the republican party and has for years served as a school director, the cause of education,
always finding in him a strong supporter. He is one of the well known citizens of Morning Sun township, where he
has lived practically his entire life and has many friends, by whom he is highly regarded.
