His father was a farmer named Green Hunnicutt. And his father’s father was a farmer named Henry Hunnicutt.
Fabious died a wealthy man.
He served on the Confederate side of the war and was in the Calvary. He brought his own horse and tack to the effort and was paid $15 for his contribution by the Confederate States of America.
He was captured and served the yankee army by baling hay for the Union Calvary in Virginia.
I have a copy of his signed pledge of allegiance to the United States in order for him to be a free man.
After the war he became wealthy rebuilding the ruins of the south particularly in Raleigh, NC. He built Rex Hospital and Central Prison which were both major public works projects. He built many roads and sidewalks in the Capital of NC. To this day you can still see, “Old Reliable Hunnicutt of Course” stamped in ancient concrete walk ways near the Capital building.
His son Fabious Henry Hunnicutt son took over the business and lost it all in The Great Depression. His son is buried in an unmarked grave beside him.
His son was my grand father Fabious Jefferson Hunnicutt and he was a pharmacist.
His son was my father and he was a salesman and a damn funny guy. He died too young.
Then there is me. My dad and I have the same name and I am a junior.
