RE: Peter Hunter
My great grandfather, was the family historian and wrote down many of his recollections of live during his retirement. He stated that Peter was buried in the Hunter Cemetery in MO. I have not personally been out to the cemetery, although it is a desire of mine to do so. I have no more exact information than that. Hope this helps!

I am not sure what you are asking. All of the children you requested to be added to her memorial are named in the obituary. If you want them linked to her that must be done on each child's memorial and not the mother's. You will need use the edit button on each child's memorial and enter the mother's memorial number. When that is accepted by the manager of the child's memorial it will then appear on Stella's memorial.

Glenda Potts Thacker
This is all I have in my file.
Family tradition is that one of the daughters of Joel Thacker, b 1750ish in Abbeville Co., SC, was named Pinkney. No documentation for that. Other information in my files:

Calindra Pinkney Thacker - A post on Genforum Jan 14, 2003 by Bob Decker gives the linage of Clarinda Pinkney Thacker, granddaughter of Joel Thacker, a Revolutionary War Veteran. She could be the granddaughter of our ancestor “Joel of Abbeville” or more likely of Joel Thacker who lived in Fentress Co., TN and drew a pension there. His pension came through the Nashville, TN office. He thought she was born in VA.

According to Bob,
This is a hand written letter from Martha Jane (Anderson) Hunter, daughter of Clarinda Pinkney Thacker and Caleb Anderson to her granddaughter Mayme Ellen (Burkhart) Pickerel (my grandmother). I will copy it as it is written with the spelling erors. Note: Clarinda Pickney Thacker was first married to Cyrenius Huddleston. The first 3 children are his. He died on the way to Missouri. She then married Caleb Anderson and had 6 more children (family history has it that Missouri was born on the way into Missouri). 1. Elizabeth, 2. Cyrenius, 3. Missouri, 4. Martha Jane, 5. Sarah Ellen, 5. Joseph, 7. Presley, 8. William, 9. Thomas.

April 2, 1931
Martha Jane Anderson born March 6, 1849 in Montgomery Co. (MO) her father, Caleb Anderson, born Sept 14, 1819 in Virginey and came to MO as a young man..... Martha's mother was Pickney Clarinda Thacker, she was born Oct 2, 1820 in Tenneysee, she came to Misourie with her husband and her grandfather's name was Joel Thacker. He served in the Rev. was under George Washington. (Pickney) died April 29, 1896 (or 1886?)............
Martha Jane Anderson Hunter

Another version of the same history is from a post on Rootsweb on the Thacker board by Margaret Walker at who said her family has a letter saying Pinkney was the granddaughter of Joel Thacker, a RWV who fought under George Thacker. She was born in TN on October 2, 1820 according to this family, and married first to Cyrenius Huddleston and had 2 children before his death in 1833. She went to MO with the Anderson family and gave birth to her third child by Huddleston there. Clarinda married second to Caleb Anderson and had 5 more children and died in Montgomery Co., MO in 1906. Margaret Walker’s cousin is Lora Thacker at

Her children were:
• Elizabeth Huddalston
• Cyrenius Huddaleston
• Missouri Anna Huddalston
• Martha Jane Anderson, born March 6, 1849 and married Mr. Hunter.
• Sarah Ellen Anderson
• Joseph Anderson
• Presley Anderson
• William Jasper Anderson
• Thomas Marcheal Anderson
• Thomas Anderson


John Pinkney Thacker was born March 13, 1840 in SC and died September 13, 1914 in Robertson Co., TN. He left SC after the Civil War, crossing the Smokey Mountains by ox drawn wagons. The hooves of the oxen were worn so badly he could go no farther so they stayed where they stopped. He married Eliza Jane Carver who was born February 18, 1842 in Pickens Co., SC and died 1914 in Robertson Co. Both John and Eliza listed SC as their parents’ places of birth in the 1880 census. He listed his occupation as “running wagon" in the census. His children were:

• Selena J. Thacker – Born ca 1862 in TN.
• C.M. Thacker – Born ca 1866 in TN.
• Leander Thacker – Born ca 1869 in TN.
• Sarah A. Thacker – Born ca 1872 in TN.

I have read that the spelling Pinkney Thacker was often used for boys and Pinknie for the girls.

Thank you for the picture of the Thomas twins head stone. That cemetery is very hard to get to. Last time I tried, there was a gate across the field and we could not access it.

Someone kindly informed me I had the spelling of the last name incorrect. The gravestone photo you posted bears this out. Would you mind changing the spelling on your caption from Elder to Edler? Thanks so much. Marji

RE: Holtwick
Good morning Richard,

That is a beautiful photo - thank you! It is sad to see the cemetery in that condition. I was in MO for genealogy trip for a week in May and actually had two in Mercer County that I was told not to visit due to being so over-grown and snake infested. The worst one we actually entered required a small machete to access. I've got them on my 'to-do' list...

Thank you again!

Thank you very much for the Gunby grave photos in Hunter Cemetery! The little ones' markers survived all these years and I wonder why there are no stones for the parents. Thanks for adding the additional photos for Hunter Cemetery. All is appreciated!
