Finding my Great-Grandfather

The family mystery is what happened to my great-grandfather.  I know when he was baptized and married but my grandfather and great-grandmother immigrated to the US without him.  Apparently, my great-grandmother did not say much about her husband.  I have found no death records for him that I can definitely identify.  I did find someone with the same name who was in Pancho Villa's army and famously killed by George Patton.  Can't confirm his identity either.  
Please help.  I need to know where to look next.   I'd love to give my 92 year old father this information.

Immigrants into Boston

I have been having a very difficult time trying to track down emigration records for my ancestor. Here are the details:

George Hunn (Hun, Hune, Hunne) b. 1600 England d. 1640 Boston, MA
m. About 1620
Anne Hunn (unknown maiden) b. 1600 England d. 1700 (rough dates) Boston
(2m. William Philpot)

1 son: Nathaniel Hunn b. 1626 Boston d. 1704 Wethersfield, CT

Any help in finding any type of ship information would be greatly appreciated. I have no record of George's death or birth along with the emigration records. Clearly they emigrated prior to 1626, according to their son's birth date. 

Thank you in advance!

Lewis R Holeman, my great gradfather, is an enigma

I'm trying to trace the parentage, indeed the veracity of Lewis R Holeman, my great grandfather. In the 1880 Fed Census, Clay, Douglas, MO, he definitely stated he was born in NC. In fact this is what the family had always believed. But, now on reading his statements given in the 1860 Fed Census of New Roe, Allen KY, where he and his family lived, he stated he was born in SC. Ditto ten years later in the 1870 Fed Census. On checking his children listed in census records, their surnames apparently varied from Holman to Holeman at times.

By no means am I a competent genealogy researcher, but I haven't been able to confirm his assertion of being born in Guilford. All I uncovered was an 1826 birth with Holeman surname recorded in Hillsborough, Orange, North Carolina. I did receive a possible connection with a Spencer A Holeman who was reported to have married Esther Chrisman in 1814 in Guilford County, but alas, Lewis was not listed among their children.

I'm recognizing that genealogy research can be a bit frustrating, and all help in tracing down this great grandfather would be greatly appreciated. :-)

Heathcoats, Hathcoats, Etc.

My family on my grandfather's side has lived in Lauderdale Co for a long time, but the information I can find is very small. I know my great-grandparents names were Fred and Arline Heathcoat and my great-great-grandparent were Robert and Florence Heathcoat. Beyond that I haven't really found much further back. If anyone can find more information I would be eternally grateful!

P.S.: I know our last name probably changed around over the years. I've seen it spelled Hathcoat and Haithcoat. Some relatives say there could be other alternate spellings too.
