my name is Donald Hunter. My g grandfather was Harry A. Hunter brother to Martha Hunter Dunn. She was a twin or born in same year as Elijah of 1801. Elisha Hunter was the brother of Elisha Hunter who died in 1836 in Greene co., Ala. I think.
he was into land speculation I'm assuming.because he bought 40 and 80 acres of land in 1828 and 1834. He married a widow Melinda in 1835. When he died in late 1836 his estate was split up with my grandfather Harry(sometimes Henry) Hunter,Eliza, Anne P., and Martha and their spouses, as well as a mary Hunter and Elizabeth Hunter. These last two 'Maybe'
Elija Hunter's oldest children. Harry was given power of attorney for his sisters to settle their portion of the estate in 1836. But in 1838 the POA was given to Green Dunn. Note :here Green maybe short for Greenberry.there are a few other Greenberry Dunns some in Ga. and Ala. and maybe Texas. Also some of the Dunns had connections to the Martins and Eliza's husband last name was a Martin.Also I have some posts on genealogy forum but also genforum and other genealogy search
sites. mainly anson Co., Stanley Co.,Mecklenburg Co. as well as Hunter, Crocker, Dunn, Martin sites .
When that happened it indicated there was a rift of some kind in that family. Maybe indicated when Martha was only given 5 dollars as inheritance. I don't know for sure if he was a lawyer but it did not require a person to go college but worked for an attorney for a period of time to become a lawyer in the early history of the United States.
Greenberry Dunn I found in Ala had a different age and different family than one in NC.But could very well be related large group of Dunns as well as Martins that seem to interconnect.
