Member Vernon Richard of Dallas writes: Do you know if there is any member of the society doing research on the Hunter surname. I am particular interested in a man named William H. Hunter from South Carolina that came to Hawkins, Texas (Wood County) in 1859. He had a daughter name Mary J. (Mollie) Hunter who married James H. Ray in 1866. William Hunter died in 1867 and is buried in the Ray Family Cemetery.
I know there is a short biography of the Hunter-Ray family relationship which was published in a book concerning the 50th anniversary of Wood County by the Historical Society. The article was very detailed about the Ray family, but I need to know if there is anyone who has or is doing research on the Hunter family. It was the Hunters who brought my family to Hawkins, Texas in 1859. It appears that the Hunters spent sometime in Alabama because their daughters were born there.
Any information you can provide will be appreciated.
