52:4 John Hunter #2 (1788-1846)

I’ve previously mentioned that the Hunter family has a tradition of being stone masons. John Hunter (1813-1883) was a stone mason/brick mason as was his father and a few of his brothers. However, another interesting tidbit about this family is that there seems to be 3 straight generations of John Hunters who married women named Elizabeth. John Hunter (1813-1883) married Elizabeth Wardell. John Hunter (1788-1846) married Elisabeth Parks. And John Hunter (1760-1839) married Elizabeth Consitt. Today, here is some information on John Hunter #2 (1788-1846).¬†

The information is a little sparse. I hope more information exists in Yorkshire records. And I further hope that one day, more of those records will be online OR that I will be able to visit the UK again and look for these records myself. But for now, this will have to do.
