What an interesting Hunter family I found today researching.
Captain Charles Hunter was born June 19, 1813 and with two other members of his family members lost in the sinking of the SS Ville du Havre on 22 Nov 1873.
The Origins Of The Clan Hunter And Their Place In History by Iain Bray is a book I purchased in Scotland.
Very interesting and a lot of good information to share to my study.
