I began tracing my heritage by confirming the identity of ancestors I know as fact. Following a particular ancestor born in Tennessee and passing away in Montana in 1948. Tracing HIS ancestors he direction took me to S. Carolina as well as N. Carolina.
At that point I hit a brick wall. That was until I remembered a story that “has been passed on from one generation of our Hunter family to the next. My mother told me this story began when the wife of my male Hunter ancestor. “She always told EVERYONE: “and Gen. George Washington kissed my hand !”
So my logic took me backwards to the Revolutionary War - sunrname Hunter and Gen. Washington. It soon brought Hunter, Elijah / New York / A working spy used by Gen. Washington. This led me to Hunter Clans moving southward along the coast to Richmond Virginia.
A Very LONG story to tell. I’m 71 years old. Should there indeed be a connection, where do I go from here⁉️ I would love ANY advice offered.
