I donít have the documented proof that you requested, but I do have the following information that might be of interest to you. My great-great-grandfather Harvey Bowman Story who came to Dallas County, Texas from Pulaski County, Illinois had a brother Jonathan Story that married Saphronia Hunsaker and a sister Mary Ann that married Carroll Hunsaker. A number of the Storyís including Jonathan and his wife are buried in Sowers Cemetery in Irving, Dallas County, Texas. I do not know where the Hunsakers are buried. A check of the 1850 census for Pulaski County, Illinois revealed the following Hunsakers:
Annette a 9 yr old female living with Jonathan and Saphronia,
Riley an 18 yr old male and Benj a 13 yr old male living with Lewis and Ruth Caster. The Storyís and Casters were neighbors in Illinois and later both families moved to Dallas County, Texas and settled near what is now the city of Irving, Texas If any of this is of interest to you, you can contact me offline for additional details.
