Hi,
I read your query. I am researching my g-g-g-grandparents John and Nancy Hunter. They had 3 children. Minervia Jane Hunter, Margaret Hunter and a son name unknown to us. It was said that they were Indian. Could this be any connection to your line?
Thanks Tracy

minerva jane hunter was born on aug 28 1847 and married jake skaggs from lone grove okla on 2-20-1868. she passed away on 1-4-1952. this information was listed on a family history that my aunt had done. the only native american link that I could find was that minerva's aunt(elizabeth hunter) was supposedly killed by indians in fannin co. texas. Our particular branch on the hunter family did eventually marry into the choctaw tribe much later. her mother was mary damron and her father was john f hunter. she had brothers named george t, john m, joseph c, william and sisters sara a , lisha ,mary felicia, tennie,martha and josie. again, this is all from a family history workup that my aunt commissioned and I can't vouch for its authenticity except for the recent entries,

my father is Roy wallace hunter/my grandfather was george washington hunter/my great grandfather was benny hunter. This sounds like there may be some relation as you mentioned the benahantabee which was my great grandfather's choctaw name. Tennessee Risner is my great grandmother, she was of german descent. I know where the family graveyard is located where her and Benny's graves rest. The Jane you are referring to sound like it may be my great aunt. I believe her name was also King at one time. I have access to several records including the roll number for george. Great Grandfather Benny died before the rolls were created.
