I'm not sure about the original post author (ElizabethCrompton ) but I am also very interested in the Pine Creek Valley and the Pioneer. I would be interested if the JVB Library has any of the paper and if so which issues.
I am researching the Hunter family - Elijah (abt. 1855-before 1900) and sons Irvin (1875-1953) and Harry (1861-1946) - out of Cammal and the Campbell family (one of the founding families in the Cammal area). Elijah (spelling is questionable) married into the Campbell family with Catherine Anne Campbell (1856-1930).
I have very little information on Elijah Hunter. My hopes is that perhaps the Pine Creek Pioneer may have some information.
If the JVB Library, or perhaps the LCGS, has Pioneer issues, I can plan my own trip.
