Jefferson Hunt
Charles Jefferson Hunt was born 22 Jan 1804 in Bracken County, Kentucky. In 1823 he and his family joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was expelled from Missouri with the Saints in 1835, and in 1846-47 served as caption of company A in the Mormon Battalion.

In 1849 he guided a company of emigrants from Utah to California. Twenty wagons rebelled and wound up discovering Death Valley. He lived in San Bernardino, California; Huntsville, Utah (named for him); and on his ranch near Oxford, Idaho. A true frontiersman and a stalwart Saint, he died 11 May 1879 at age 75.
