Looking for any information concerning James Hunter of Ireland. Understand that he might have been from Armagh.
He had a son named Robert, which is my decendency line.
Would appreciate any information concerning this family.
Thank you
Elaine Hunter

Hi Pat,

Sorry I did not reply before this. The Robert Hunter that is of my line had two brothers Archibald, and James. They settled in Orange County NY. Robert was married to Elizabeth Gillespie and had a son, James Hunter....the decendency was as follows: Robert Hunter, Matthew Robert Hunter, Robert Kidd Hunter, Hiram Hunter, George Hunter, Raymond Hunter, then me. If you have any information on this line, I would greatly appreciate recieving that information. My email address is eemoore488681@aol.com. Hope to hear from you soon.

Elaine Hunter Moore

Hi Elaine, I came across your post. There was an Archibald hunter and two James Hunters in Onondaga County ,N.Y.
approx. 1853 - 1904. Is this any connection. My James Hunter was born 1821( Scotland) married Jane Meicle ( Meikle). I have more info if this the same family.

Surnames: Hunter, Gillespie, Crist, Smith, Moule, VanKeuren, Palmer, Stitt
I was hunting through the board for the same information as you, as I am also descended from Robert Hunter (b. ca. 1714 in Ireland?, d. 1783) who married Elizabeth Gillespie...My line is:
Matthew Hunter (1750-ca. 1804) m. Antje Crist (ca 1748-ca. 1802)
Elizabeth Hunter (1773-1844) m. Jacobus Smith (1769-1846)
Matthew Smith (1795-1876) m. Eliza Moule (1801-1839)
Harriet Smith (1828-1882) m. Nelson VanKeuren (1826-1907)
Henry Smith VanKeuren (1852-1927) m. Kittie May Palmer (1853-1917)
Leota VanKeuren (1896-1990) m. John Howard Stitt (1893-1962) (my grandparents)

At any rate, given the estimated birth date of Robert, I'm guessing his father, James Hunter, would have been born in County Armagh around 1670-1690.

Anyone with a suggestion where to look next?

Hi, I am researching Hunter's from Armagh perhaps around Camlough and Newry, My ancestor is John Hunter 1828 from death cert. Still a lot of research to do, but his sons where James 1854 and Patrick abt 1860. They were tinsmiths and his children married Catholic's. They had strong links with Airdrie and Scotland. I have not found birth records so I do not know where they came from. I have no mother's name. I have a strong possibility of another brother Edward 1848 also a Tinsmith. The records office told me they were not from Ireland and census shows the children who married in Ireland did seem to travel back and forth. Perhaps your William could be related to John Hunter 1828? The only records I have found are marriage and death records. I We have the name William in both of the families along with John, Robert, Patrick, James and Thomas. All common names though.
Could you please share a little bit more info on your James Hunter - religion, occupation of father, where in Armagh was William born or married, as I might have come across them in my search for my James Hunter son of John which I thought was born 1858.
Kind regards
