HUNTON, Logan, lawyer, born in Albemarle county, Virginia, in 1806; died in St. Louis county, Missouri, in 1880. His father went to Kentucky about 1818, and settled in Lincoln county. The son was educated at Centre and Transylvania universities, studied law, and practised in Stanford. He served in the legislature and held other public offices in Kentucky, and in 1838 removed to St. Louis, Missouri, where he practised with success. He was a delegate to the Harrisburg Whig convention in 1840, and on his return engaged actively in the presidential canvass in favor of General Harrison. In 1844 he went to New Orleans, where he served as United States district attorney, to which office he was appointed by President Taylor. He subsequently returned to St. Louis, and was active in the councils of the Presbyterian church, serving also as a member of the board of trustees of Westminster college.
