Administrator's Bond - Acklin, Hinds & Hunt

William Acklin, James V.A. Hinds and David Hunt were bonded and William Acklin was appointed Administrator for his son's, Theodore Acklin's, estate in (Huntsville) Madison Co., Alabama.

William Acklin was the son of Samuel & Elizabeth (Hunt) Acklin and the grandson of John Hunt, for whom Huntsville, Alabama was named. James V. A. Hinds was William H. Acklin's cousin. What was David Hunt's relationship, if any, to Acklin and/or Hinds?

There's a David Hunt, age 17, living with *this* James Hinds in 1870. (Probably too young to be the one in the bond, but maybe not.)
