Notes:
The 1880 Census lists both John D.H. Lunt and Samuel H. Lunt (1846-1925) as druggists. They were both living in the same households as "step sons" to the head of household. I presume from this that they were brothers.
The book lists bottles from "Lunt & Allen" as well as "Lunt & Davidson". I haven't seen those drug stores listed in any Alexandria Directories, so I don't know what years they were in business.
