Ebenezer Hunter was an early convert of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Scotland. He was instrumental in keeping a valuable record of the Bathgate Branch in the Edinburgh Conference from 1846-1854.

On page one of this journal Ebenezer writes:

I was born in Stobhill in the parish of Cookpen County of Edinburgh [Midlothian] on the 22 of February 1831 and brought up there by my father and mother, William Hunter and Elspeth Thomson. My father and mother had 8 children, five of them only I recount any thing about; Hellen, Jennet, John, myself and James.

My father died in the month of June 1841 and left us. Soon after my sister Hellen got married to her husband Alexander Stoddar [Agnes Maud Deakin's records give this name as Stoddard(t)] and Jennet to David Hyind.

I was married to my wife Agnes Martin on the 24 of June 1852 by T.W. Brewarton, President of the Edinburgh Conference, in a public meeting in the house of Walter Muir in Crofthead… By special Command of President Fredrick C. Robinson, President of the Western District of the Edinburgh Conference, witnesses to the above; Abraham Kinghorn, President of the Crofthead Branch, Walter Muir, Alexander Gilchrist.

To this union six children were born:

William (b: 23 Jan 1853 d: 27 Apr 1926)
Mary Bathgate (b: 17 Dec 1854 d: 24 Feb 1860)
Ebenezer (b: 6 Dec 1856 d: 24 Feb 1860)
Agnes (b: 18 Feb 1859 d: 13 Aug 1942)
Mary Hellen (b: 23 Oct 1864 d: 31 Oct 1871 )
John (b: 22 Oct 1866 d: 12 Sep 1944)
