I need help locating info on Abraham Waeir/Wyer/Waier/Waer and many more spellings. Abraham was born in 1683 not known where or who his parents or siblings were at this time. He is thought to have come from Hells gate NY area.

Abraham married Abiah Colver in Nov 1715 in Groton Ct. So far I have found 2 children for them a son Thomas born 1723 in either NJ or Ma. and a daughter Sarah not sure year of birth Sarah married a Thomas Mann n she was still living in like 1780.. My family descend through their son Thomas. I have Colver family info going back a bit and I have from Abraham and Thomas forward to present day. I have found just one Abraham Waeir over the years and that Abraham was born in 1683 in Sept in London his parents listed as James Ware/Weir etc and his wife, no proof or not if is the Abraham i am searching for. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, hazel Melroy

P.S. There is more than one marriage record for this couple one spells surname as Wyer and Waeir. Abiah is listed as Colver.

Hunter/Lunan Canada

My 2nd great grandmother was Margaret I. Hunter she married George Anderson Lunan. Im searching at moment for info on Margaret. No one in my family seems to know much about her. She was born as far as is known in Canada in 1868/9? daughter of George and Isabella Cockburn Hunter she had at least one brother named David Hunter. Margaret and her husband had several children most of whom died young of their surviving children their daughter Mabel is my great grandmother and also the source of info in our family line. That is where what we know for sure ends, according to their daughter Mabel Margaret I Hunter was orphaned young was adopted by George and Isabella Hunter. That much i found on a record for Margaret long ago. However daughter Mabel claimed her mother Margaret was Native American in ancestry full blood, but here is where it starts to sound a bit off, Mabel claimed her mother was Cherokee as far as I am aware the Cherokee lived in southeastern USA. Having said that I understand it could be possible that she may have belonged to a different tribe or perhaps not all. If anyone may be related or have info it wou;d be of great help... Thank you, Hazel Melroy
