I have just been researching John William Hunter. He is my 2nd cousin 1x removed. His parents were John Hunter and mary Ann Hodgson. Mary Ann's parents were William Hodgson and Caroline Summerson. They emigrated to USA in 1869 from West Auckland, County Durham, England. Caroline's father, Samuel Summerson is my great great grandfather.
