Sorry for taking so long to respond.
According my information, I am descended from Joseph Hunter, originally of Ireland, who married Mary Ann Holmes in Ireland. They did emigrate to Carlyle, Pennsylvania. He worked for a short while in Kaskaskia, Illinois, and later settled near Louisville, Kentucky. He died and was buried in Louisville in 1791 or 1792.
Joseph Hunter I had a son, Joseph Hunter, Jr. born in Carlyle, Pennsylvania. He also had other sons and daughters, but it is from Joseph Jr. that the Hunters of New Madrid are descended. He married Catherine Phillips in Louisville, Kentucky in 1793. Both are buried in Sikeston, Missouri.
