Hello!

I am primarily in search of any information on these HUNTER, and BAUMGARDNER, BUMGARDNER families. I am seeking information on William and Hannah HUNTER, and would enjoy knowing more about Caroline BAUMGARDNER/BUMGARDNER, who married Hezekiah HUNTER, and was the daughter of Anthony BAUMGARDNER and Elizabeth DAVIS. I would also, like to locate information on Sarah Adeline BUMGARDNER, who married William Harrison HUNTER, and was the daughter of John and Rhoda BUMGARDNER. I would be interested in any information on these HUNTER, and BAUMGARDNER/ BUMGARDNER families, and all their aligned families. Such as, the COLLINS’ sisters, Harriet Matilda, and Mary Ann COLLINS, who married two grandsons of William and Hannah HUNTER, Clinton, and Edward A. HUNTER. Harriet Matilda, and Mary Ann Collins, was the daughters of William C. and Mary Ann Malinda Robbs Collins.

I have been doing my families genealogical research since 1976, and since that time, I have found very little on my HUNTER family. If you have any record of the people I mention below I would enjoy hearing from you! I have a great deal of tangled bits and pieces on my HUNTER family, and then again a large amount of information on the aliened families, so I would be happy to share any information I have. Please take a look at what I have been able to pull together and list below on these HUNTER and BAUMGARDNER/BUMGARDNER families. Thank You so very much for your time!

Sincerely,

Berna David Hunter
