Hunter Family Cemetery

You're welcome. This cemetery is located on family land that has been held since Andrew Hunter homesteaded it in 1871. The cemetery has always been a curiosity to me. No Hunter's were buried there and the first burial was within a year of Andrew Hunter arriving at Coyville. The cemetery was right next to their barn and a stone's throw from their cabin. Strange to bury people so close to their living area considering he had 160 acres of land. I know the Morgan's traveled with Andrew's brother, James, from Shawnee County, KS to Coyville in 1870ish. (Andrew migrated from Warren County, IN to meet up with his brother in Coyville.) I think James and some Morgans served together in the Civil War. I haven't been able to find any other connections before Shawnee Cty with the Hunter's and Morgans.

If you are aware of any history here I would be grateful. It just seems to me that there must have been a deeper connection between the families to have agreed to have another family's loved ones buried so close to one's home.

RE: Stuart Sherman Winings
A few tips. Watch for your shadow as well as sun glair. Cloud days are best for photos. Where I live we never have a cloud day. Some times the headstone is dirty so I bring water and a brush. Be sure the headstone is readable. Look for headstones of family around the headstone you are looking for. Folks sometimes are not aware of the others. ie wife's name or a child. etc. Have fun! and thanks.

Glad I could help, Sherry. There was no headstone -- just the marker.

Your very welcome. If there are any others I can trace down for you within a couple hours drive of Kennewick WA...let me know. I always like a field trip to a cemetery.
