The Hunt Family From Genesee County, NY

I've been tracing my Hunt family connection which I knew came from New York. My ancestor Joseph Hunt was born in New York about 1806, and one of his sons Alexander was born there in about 1831. They moved to Peoria County, Illinois around 1840. I have been trying to locate exactly where they came from in New York and who Joseph's parents might have been.

I traced Carlton Hunt, who I believe is Joseph's brother or at least a close relative, back to Genesee County, NY. Carlton Hunt was born in 1820 in New Batavia (Township = ??) to Simon L Hunt and Lorinda Metcalf Hunt.

Also, I located four(4) adult Hunt males in Genesee County in the 1820 census. There were two(2) Simon Hunts, one from Bethany Township and one from Gates Township. Also, there were two (apparent) brothers living next door to each other - Enoch and Joseph L Hunt - in Clarkson Township.

If anyone has any information on this family I would really appreciate your response. I would especially appreciate any birth records, obituaries or biographical information which would help me connect my Joseph Hunt born about 1806 with one of the above Hunt households.

Also, would anyone there have any information on how to contact the local genealogical society ?
