I originally posted this to the "Hunter" forum as was asked to post it here in "Taiwan". Perhaps some of oyu may have known Dr. James Hunter or Maude Hunter when they were at TungHai or with UNRRA. Theyy were in Taiwan from 1949 to 1961.
My grandfather was James Ayres Hunter b. 1890, d. 1966. His father was George Hunter, (son of George Hunter) b. about 1856 Payson, IL. George Hunter, the elder, was the second son of Rev. Moses Hunter. George Hunter, the younger, m.Abbie Ayres of Galesburg, IL. George and Abbie had 5 children: Edith, Bertha, George, Jim (James Ayres), and Mary.

George Hunter, the younger, graduated from Knox College and became a Presbyterian minister. His last pastorate was at Haywarden, Iowa, which was then frontier. James Ayres Hunter graduated from the University of Illinois and become a Presbyterian Minister.
