— Quaker Abolitionist —
"I ask no other reward for my efforts than to feel that I have been of service to my fellow men. No other course would have brought peace to my mind."
His grave is adjacent to this meeting house and this was his stepping stone and hitching post.
His son, "Honest" John Hunn Jr., while Gov. of Del. 1901 05, was the first to advocate that women be admitted to the Univ. of Del. and that a paved highway be constructed the entire length of Del. He is also buried here.
