this may be a part of my family tree. My father's family immigrated to the US from scotland. all the names you are common family names. I am told my grandfather was born in scotland. I think his full name was william judge hunter. most of his children were named after members of his family and the names inclueded: william, homer robert, mary, janet, earl, rose and thomas. william judge married hazel and they made their home near genesee, michigan. please let me know if this is a match to any info that you may have. i am just beginning my search. my grandfather passed away many years ago and hazel is unable to remember much.

Thanks very much Glenn ... yes, I have looked at both sites quite a few times before ... I loved how you have the details all set out.
William Hunter is my direct descendant.
