To update the last post, I have made very little headway on my Hunter family.
To answer the question of where I got my information, My husbands grandfather told me this story on several occassions, and I haven't even heard of the Skaggs book.
My hunters came from Ireland and Scotland. Robert Hunter and Anne Feeney had the following children:
1. George Hunter married Millie
2. Robert Hunter born in Pennsylvania married Eva
They had two daughters
3. John Francis Hunter born in Pennsylvania married Mary Fish, They had 1 daughter and 4 sons
He was an Attorney living in Lucas County, Ohio
4. Mary Hunter born in Crystal City, Missouri
5. Esther Hunter born in Toledo, Ohio
Mary and Esther married Benjimen Turner of Floyd County, IN.
The Census' states Roberts parents were from England.
