Prior to this century, this grave had only a brass marker placed by the Association in the 1930s.  The name on the marker was HUNT.  Using the Association archives and the Hunt family research more details were learned about the grave.  A new marker with the proper information was placed by the Hunt family in 2009.
 
 
Obituary
MIRANDA BARNES HUNT  (03 Oct 1832 - 16 Jun 1914)
 
Originally little was known about this family. The Association archives says this is the grave of the sister of H .C. and Ruthe Hunt. Census data indicated that her name was Miranda and that she was living with Henry Clay Hunt in Council Grove in 1900 (born Oct 1832). She is also found in the 1910 Census - but not 1920. Miranda's full name and the other information about the HUNT family came from ROOTSWEB; and later the HUNT family confirmed and expanded on the information. Other than being neighbors, there does not seem to be any relationship between the HUNT family and the other families at Olive Hill.
