> He married Rebecca Besse,17, Feb,1677078 in Sandwich,
> Plymouth Colony,MA.

I find no record of that marriage at Sandwich.

> Elisha Hunter b 10,Aug 1678 In Sandwich

He was born 10-Aug-1679 (not 1678) [Sandwich VR 1:15].

> Mary Ann Hunter br, 1690 Sandwich

I find no record of her birth there.

> Rebecca Hunter born 1698, Rochester

I find no record of her birth at Rochester.

> Johnathan Hunter br.,26 March 1702 In Rochester

I find no record of his birth there. He may, however, have been the Jonathan Hunterfor whom there are other records at Rochester [Rochester VR].

> Thomas Hunter born b1686 in Sandwich

I find no record of his birth there.

> 8 William Hunter JR> born Mar 21,1680-81 Sandwich

This child was already listed as number 3.

> Many say that Rebecca Besse name is Bearse

Besse and Bearse are different families. If by "many" you are referrring to sources online, those are frequently wrong and almost always undocumented (and therefore questionable at best).

> Mary ,Little Dove, Hyanno.

That assertion was disproved over seventy years ago. See TAG, 15 (1938):111-118. The assertions about Austin Bearse are also unfounded and contrary to evidence in contemporary records.
