W. HUNT. -Among the brightest
young business men of Dallas, Texas, is
X J. W. Hunt, who was born in the city
of Salina, Alabama, November 13, 1863. He
was the younger in the family of two children
born to William J. and Mary J. (Smith)
Hunt, both natives of Alabama. The father
was a blacksmith by trade and was well and
favorably known in the city where he lived.
His death occurred in 1865 and soon afterward
the mother and family moved to Monroe

now resides. She is the wife of William T.

in business for himself, starting a dairy of
his own, and keeping two milk wagons on
the road. He continued business alone for
a year and then took a partner to whom he
