I'm not related, but did some digging
Indiana marriages:
Benjamin Hunter married Julia Ann Sharpe/Sharp on 11 May 1847 in Miami Co. IN
There are multiple references to this marriage in various indiana marriage databases and they all refer to her as Julia Ann Sharpe.

I believe she is the dau of Jacob Sharp b. @ 1804 in PA and Sarah (UNK) b. @ 1807 PA

1850 Butler, Miami Co. IN
Sharp, Jacob 46 PA Farmer
Sarah 43 PA

1880 Peru Miami IN
Sharp, Joel 27 IN PA __ laborer
Sarah 30, wife IN IN IN
Effie 5 IN IN IN
William H. 1 IN IN IN
Jacob 74, grandfather PA PA PA
Sarah 72, grandmother PA PA PA

(Joel was the son of Henry Sharp b. @ 1828 PA and Sarah UNK b. @ 1830 OH)

There were several older children who were born in PA before Jacob went to Ohio. They evidently got to Indiana sometime after 1843 and before 1847.
Jacob died in 1880 and Sarah died in 1888. They are buried at Peru Mt. Hope Cem. Original section, Block 9, Lot 18 graves 5 & 6. They may not be marked graves.

Samuel G. Hunter married Claudie Nolan/Noland 17 Jan 1892
Sarah Hunter married Franklin Means 24 Aug 1873
Mary Ellen Hunter married Miles Monroe York 28 Oct 1872

Lots of the kids stayed in the Miami Co area through their deaths in the 1920s and 30s.

The Miami Co. IN Genweb site has lots of marriage, cemetery, death, etc. info. You may be able to do a bunch of tracing forward using their site.

Several other people have family trees saying that Benjamin Hunter was born in Franklin, Pennsylvania and was the son of Alfred Hunter 1797 (NC)-1840 and Elizabeth Long 1795(PA)-?? None of them have any reliable sources for their information, so I would treat this as a lead, not a fact.
