I am most honored and humbled to have been profiled in the March-April issue of the East Nashvillian Magazine. The article tells part of the story of our family history in East Nashville. You can download current and past issues of the East Nashvillian magazine.
Our family has had a continuing presence in East Nashville since 1855. William Sanders Hunt first appeared, in a Nashville City Directory, as an Edgefield resident in that year. Edgefield was a new community then, having recently been subdivided from the farm of John Shelby. W. S. Hunt was my great-great grandfather.
His son Felix Zollicoffer Hunt was born March 31, 1866 in East Nashville. The family was living at the corner of Barrow [So. 2nd] and Watson [Boscobel].
Minnie Mae Hunt, daughter of Felix, was born February 24, 1899, when her parents were living in the thirteen hundred block of Shelby Ave. In 1916 Minnie was married to Wilmoth (Pat) Steele, son of Alex and Lola Dickson Steele. The Steele's lived at 620 Shelby Ave., where Wilmoth was born on July 26, 1892. My mother Lola Mae Steele was the second daughter of Minnie and Wilmoth. Mama was born in a house located at 227 Shelby Ave. on August 23, 1919.
Mama and Daddy's siblings all grew up in East Nashville. Many of my cousins lived in East Nashville or nearby when they were children. I have lived at six addresses in my nearly 60 years, five in East Nashville and at our present home in Inglewood. I still have a problem calling Inglewood "East Nashville." Since the merger of the city and county in 1963, the lines between the two communities have blurred. In 2012 there are only a handful of the family in East Nashville. A nephew and his family live in the neighborhood though they are not native to the community. My husband Jimmy, my two daughters Tammy and Amanda, and I moved to Inglewood in 1978. My children grew up in Inglewood and one of them still lives here. Starting with Grandpa Hunt our family has been continuously in East Nashville for nearly one hundred and sixty years.
Our Davidson County family history began long before there was an East Nashville. Early Nashville area family names on my Daddy's side are Gower, Russell, Wright, Cook, Davis, Allen and Koen. Some of these were here as early as 1780. On Mama's side, Steele, Binkley, Shane, Buchanan, Castleman are some of the families that were in Nashville in the pioneer days of the late 1700's.
My husband Jimmy is no slouch when it comes to pioneer settlers in Nashville. Demonbreun Street was named in honor of Jim's gr-gr-gr-gr Grandfather, Timothy Demonbreun, a French-Canadian fur trader who had a presence here some years before the first permanent settlement.
Jim's ancestor John Rains was one of the first, and is immortalized in many accounts of early Nashville history. Some of Jim's families; Bradley, Binkley, Baker, Dowlen, Fontaine, Freeman were among the earliest settlers in neighboring Robertson County. Our daughters Tammy and Amanda have a fine Middle Tennessee Heritage. They are the eleventh generation of our family to live in Davidson County, Tennessee, through the Gower family line and tenth generation through several other family lines.

Chancery file # 69
Hooper - Petition for sale of slave
Jesse Jordon, guardian of the petitioners
“The petition of Fanny Hooper, Huldy Hooper, Jesse Hooper, William Hooper, Araminta Hooper and F. Marion Hooper and James Hooper infant children of tender years and children of Churchill Hooper of Davidson County by their next friend and uncle Jesse Jordan a citizen of Davidson County shows unto your honor that in the year 1835 their Grand Mother Jane _ Hooper made a deed of gift to them for a Negro slave named Winney…” signed Jesse Jordan
Sworn to and subscribed before me Arpil 20th 1844 Benjamin Sharpe J. P. Davidson County Tennessee
Churchill Hoopers children of Jane T. Hooper Registered February 23rd 1835
“I Jane Hooper of Davidson County & State of Tennessee doth for the love good will & affection which I bear to my grandchildren the heirs & children of my son Churchill Hooper & a valuable consideration to me in had paid the receipt where of is hereby acknowledged hath given granted bargained & sold unto the aforesaid children & heirs of the aforesaid Churchill Hooper forever a certain Negro girl a bright mulatto named Winney a slave for life…” Signed by her mark Jane T. Hooper 15 August 1834, witnesses Geo. W. C. Lovell, Jas. Lovell
Deposition of Jno. Robertson sworn to before Benjamin Sharpe J.P. May 4, 1844
“I am acquainted with Churchill Hooper & his family. They reside from my fathers about two miles, he is a man of small property & his children are numerous, two girls his oldest children about 12 & 14 years of age, and able to assist their mother. The others are small and unable to assist her. He resides in Davidson, he is a singular man of wild habits, sometimes goes from home & remains away without making any provisions for his family, takes no control of the slave Winney, permits her to go away from home & she frequently does, & then takes no means to correct her. Winney could if she would be useful, she is able bodied, but has the habit of going off at will, remaining away as long as she likes, she has a small boy child. I do not think her of use to the family. I think a slave or slaves might be purchased who would be of great value to his wife & children.
