My mother was a Hunter. My Hunter line started out with William in CT, then moved to SC, and then on to Dallas Co, AL. They were mostly doctors and lawyers and plantation owners until the Civil War. That is when my descendant, George A. Hunter, went to LA to enlist. After the war, he came to Texas. I live in Texas and would love to hear from other Hunters.

Hi My Hunter ancestors came from County Ayr, Scotland, where they were hunters by occupation-hence the name. Due to religious persecution in Scotland ,the hunters moved to Northern Ireland. David Hunter came to Nova Scotia from Aghadowey, in Londonderry County,Ireland with his wife and six children. Two more children were born in Nova Scotia. David Hunter's wife was Margaret Martin, daughter og Lodowick Martin of Ulster. Their ship was bound for Philadelphia ut was wrecked off Sable Island,not far from Nova Scotia. Another vessel "The Good Ship Blessing" came to the rescue and took the Hunter family and other passengers to Halifax. The Hunter family settled on the Wentworth Road near Windsor and lived there from 1769 until 1785.

My Hunters came from Meigs County, TN, then spread out all over (I'm from Texas). I'm not sure prior to that. Possibly NC or PA.

Barbara, I also have an AJ Hunter who was my gg-grandfather.

The Hunter that has had me stumped for over 20 yrs of my research is my gr granddaddy, Andrew Jackson Hunter. He buried the Family Bible so no one would know who he really was, who his parents were, or how old he really was. He gave a different birth date each census. We have family stories or Native American Heritage, as told to me by his grandson and my mother, his granddaughter. But proof? It was in that Bible.

My Hunters originated in Scotland and settled in Utah. Would love to share!

Hi Barbara, my Hunter ancestors started in Onslow, North Carolina and migrated to southern Georgia, then some went out to Texas. I do not have any knowledge of them being Native American.

Hi Joe and welcome. My Hunters started out in SC and ended up in Alabama. I am not sure if any of them ever got to Texas or even Ga for that matter. Are any of your Hunters Native American?

I have lots of info on Hunters in Georgia and Texas, looking to share.
