    1836 · Remember the Alamo
    Age 2
    Being a monumental event in the Texas Revolution, The Battle of the Alamo was a thirteen-day battle at the Alamo Mission near San Antonio. In the early morning of the final battle, the Mexican Army advanced on the Alamo. Quickly being overrun, the Texian Soldiers quickly withdrew inside the building. The battle has often been overshadowed by events from the Mexican–American War, But the Alamo gradually became known as a national battle site and later named an official Texas State Shrine.
    1836 · Kirtland Temple Dedicated
    Age 2
    On March 27, 1836, the Kirtland Temple was dedicated.
    1857 · 7.9 Earthquake In Fort Tejon
    Age 23
    The Fort Tejon earthquake, on January 9, 1857, registered at 7.9, making it one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded in the United States. Only two people were killed, largely due to the sparse population in the area where the earthquake occurred. As a result of the large scale shaking, the Kern River was turned upstream and fish were stranded miles from Tulare Lake as the waters were rocked so far from its banks.

    Name Meaning

    English (Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire): occupational name either for a hunter or a servant of a hunter, from a compound of Middle English hunte ‘the act of hunting’ (or Old English hunta ‘huntsman’) + man. In some cases the name may also arise from a late, unrecorded Old English personal name Huntmann, a compound of hunta + -mann.
