      A. From the History of Ontario County; compiled by Lewis Cass Aldrich; edited by George S. Conover; 1893: "Nathan S. Hunn, Canandaigua, was born on a farm in Canandaigua, now occupied by his son, April 20, 1828. His grandfather, Rev. Zadock Hunn, was a native of Berkshire, Mass., and came to this section in 1795. He, in company with Rev. John Ralph, organized the Congregational Society of Canandaigua. He married in Massachusetts Mary Morton, and they had five children, of whom James G. was the oldest son. He was born in 1781 in Massachusetts, and since the age of fourteen made this farm his home. At the death of his father he assumed the management of the farm. He married Eliza Gillette, also of Massachusetts, and of their eleven children two survive: Thomas, of Bristol, and George, of Gainesville, Wyoming county. Nathan S. was the youngest son. His whole life was spent on the farm, which has now been in the possession of the family almost a century. Mr. Hunn has erected on it a beautiful residence, with fine barns, etc. He was a man of excellent management, and after the death of his father increased the farm from 150 to 350 acres. He was an upright and honest man and citizen. December 25, 1852, he married Marcia A., daughter of Sheldon and Roxana (Holmes) Squire. They have had three children: James G., who died February 10, 1878, aged twenty-four years; Eliza A., wife of William H. Pierce, a farmer of Canandaigua; and Frank S., who conducts the homestead farm. Nathan S. died October 26, 1879, mourned by all who knew him. Frank S. was born August 3, 1863.
