Hunter Genealogy

Post by Ray Hunter »

Hello: I am looking for information on James Hunter, married to Janet Campbell. They are listed in the Stevenston 1819 census, with a son named David. I believe they left the UK on a ship called the Brig Rising Sun in 1821, when James was listed as age 29, Janet was listed as age 22, while David was 3. They settled in Antis Twp, Blair County, Pennsylvania. James is my GGGGGF. Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks - I do appreciate the response. It seems that the two children Jane and Alexander may have died prior to the family sailing for America in late 1821.

It is true that Janet must have passed in America as you say.

How can I find James' parents?

Hi Ray,As the Scottish naming system at that time ,was First son after Paternal Grandfather,and first daughter after Maternal Grandmother (Which they Did -Jane Campbell Hunter)Then i believe James Hunter's Father was called David.Only 1 i found born in Ayrshire was
28/01/1792 HUNTER JAMES DAVID HUNTER/ANN GILMOUR FR112 (FR112) M ST QUIVOX /AYR 612/01 0010 0094
Is there a middle name of Gilmour in the Famiily?

Although once they left these shores ,some never stuck to the old naming ways.

Ellen

P.S I see Antis Twp, Blair County, Pennsylvania 1828

Edit- No more info in David Hunter's Bapts.
Edit- The James Hunter born St Quivox does not appear in the Scottish Census ,but he could have died before adulthood.

Edit-Name: David Hunter
Gender: Male
Birth Date: 21 Sep 1817
Baptism Date: 28 Sep 1817
Baptism Place: Stevenston,Ayr,Scotland
Father: James Hunter
Mother: Janet Campbell
