Israel B. Lunt (1796-1861) and his brother Amos C. Lunt, Jr., sons of Amos Coffin Lunt, Sr. and Mary Bartlett Lunt, were early settlers on Long Island, Maine, arriving around 1822. Other Lunt family members soon followed and the Lunts were instrumental in establishing the community there. Israel Lunt started a business of shipping wood, dried fish, and paving stones to various places on the Maine coast and to Boston. He also established a store on the island and owned a wharf and interest in several schooners. Lunt purchased the whole island in 1835 and employed many island residents in hauling fish to dry, unloading supplies and working on his vessels. Israel Lunt died in 1861.
