JOHN HUNTER, farmer and stock raiser, son of William and Margaret (Nash) Hunter, was born in Posey County, September 21, 1825. He is of English and Irish descent, and the fourth in a family of seven children. The father of our subject came from Pennsylvania to what is now Posey County in 1815, and was thus one of the early pioneers of the county. He was a farmer by occupation, bought his land of the Harmony Dutch, and died in this county when our subject was about ten years old. The mother of our subject was born in Pennsylvania, and came to this State in 1815, and has resided here ever since. John Hunter was brought up on the farm upon which he now resides. While quite young he attended school three months each year for a few years. He has always lived on the old homestead, has more than 400 acres of fine farming land, and is one of the leading farmers of Harmony Township. Prior to the war of the Rebellion, he was a Democrat, but since that he has been a Republican. In February 1850, he was married to Miss Lucinda Wade, born in Posey County in 1830, and a daughter of Isaac M. and Sarah Wade. Mr. and Mrs. Hunter have six children viz: William. W., Mary J., Sarah, Virginia A., John N., and Martha B.
