OK - this info is basically correct, but mangled a bit due to family memories. Was born in Florida, possibly enroute at sea, while his father was stationed at Fort San Carlos Barrancas; the place and circumstance of his birth, as his grandson Leonard Hunter relates the tale, could be correct; his grandmother could have been travelling to join her husband, and at the time, a coastal sea voyage would have been the safest and the least arduous method to travel between military installations along the Florida peninsula in order to join him. Also, we note that most of Leonard's uncles and aunts, when asked about the birthplace of their father in various US Census enumerations, repeatedly answered, "At Sea."
