HUNTER

I am looking for information on the HUNTER family. Malcom Hunter wasborn in Bledsoe County in 1836 and moved to Wright County, Missouriin 1874. When he came to Missoui, he married a girl named SarahElizabeth HUNTER. They may have been cousins. Her father was alsonamed Malcom HUNTER and he lived in Bledsoe County before coming toMissouri around 1854. In a book on the history of Bledsoe County, heis listed as serving in the Cherokee wars 1836-1838. I assume thatthey all are related somewhere down the line. This is as far back asI have been able to track the HUNTER family. Any information you canprovide would be greatly appriecieated.

Jesse Self married Mary Narramore in Bledsoe Co., TN 02/16/1812. Wereother Selfs in the area about 1790-1820? Jesse was reputedly born09/24/1782 in Granville Co., NC, although I have been unable toverify these data. He may have been born in East TN before statehoodwhen it was still considered part of NC. Parents or siblings forJesse have not yet been found, although several (perhaps brothers orcousins) followed the same migration patten he did. Mary and Jessehad 12 children born in Bledsoe Co., TN; Jefferson Co., AL; andHabersham & Walker Co's., GA. I have traced many of their descendants(over 3,100 persons, including spouses) and will be glad to swapinfo. My line is through their 7th child, Joseph L. Self, who removedfrom Walker Co., GA to Scott Co., AR in 1870. Any possible clues toJesse's connections would be immensely appreciated!
