As I suspected your Anna Keever was a different but related family.

Zora Anna Keever is my 2nd cousin 3 times removed and a 2nd cousin once removed of Anna L., daughter of Adam Keever, Jr. and Martha Jarnigan. She went by Anna rather than Zora. This Anna married John C. Hunt on October 17, 1883 in Randolph County, Indiana.

I found a John C. Hunt in the 1900 Federal Census: Indiana, Marion, 1-WD Indianapolis Series: T623 Roll: 387 Page: 99B. He was a boarder at 1532 East 17th Street, born Oct. 1861 in Indiana, a widower, father born in California, mother born in Ohio and occupation carpenter. I don't know if this is the same John C. Hunt, but I think it is.

A John C. Hunt is in the 1880 Federal Census: Indiana, Randolph, West River Township Series: T9 Roll: 307 Page: 254B. He was the stepson of James Boling, age 19, occupation farm laborer, and mother, Sarah, born in Ohio.

In the 1870 Federal Census: Indiana, Randolph, West River Township Series: M593 Roll: 354 Page: 521 there is a John C. Hunt age 10 and born in Indiana. He was in the household of Jonathan W. Hunt born in North Carolina. The oldest female was Sarah age 44, born in Ohio. Also in the household are Ida May Hunt age 4 and Mornar (?) Hunt born March 1870. In the 1880 census, James Boling had stepdaughters Ida M. Hunt age 14 and Monie Hunt age 10.

SOME DESCENDANTS OF MARTIN HENRY KEEVER 1727 - 1824 AND HIS BROTHER MICHAEL KEEVER, by Claralu Keever Blake contains the following on page 49:

"317. ZORA ANNA (KEEVER) HUNT, fifth child of Mary (Barnard) and Solomon Keever, was born on March 28, 1866, in Indiana. May have been Grant, Henry, Randolph, or Wayne County.
She married John C. Hunt on October 17, 1883 in Randolph County, Indiana.
She died on April 26 1897 at age 31 yrs, 28 da. She is buried at Brick Cemetery, Hagerstown, Ind.

Children of Anna (Keever) and John Hunt were:
1. Thomas Everett Hunt, February, 1887 - 1956. He and his daughter died of whooping cough. He is buried at Maxville Cemetery.
2. Clyde Hunt, October 17, 1884
3, Solomon Hunt, October 4, ?
4. Chester Hunt, August, 17, ?
5. Mary Hunt, August 17, ?"

I think the Brick Cemetery is also known as the Nettle Creek Brethren (or Dunkard) Cemetery. The address is: Nettle Creek COB, 5352 N. Brick Church Road (39 54' 21"N, 85 10' 54"W), Hagerstown, IN 47346-9690, (765) 489-4430.

Hope this helps.
