I'm not related, but did some looking.

It appears that the KC Candy operation was as a wholesale manufacturer, rather than a retail candy store.
I first find W R Hunter, wholesale confectioner in the 1897-8 KC directory at 13 East 3rd.
The 1900 census shows that W. R. (Jr.), and brothers Clarence, Eugene, & Ernest were all in candy manufacturing.
Eugene's WWI Draft says he was a wholesale candy Mfgr at 1415 Grand Ave. KC.
There are varying birth dates for Edward Hunter,anywhere from the mid to late 1790s to poss. as late as 1811.There is a marriage record for Edward Hunter to Sarah Richardson 12/9/1830 Morgan Co. IL.
There is a Colladen(sp?) Hunter who buys land in 1829/30 Morgan Co. & is living with Edward in 1850.Relationship in unclear, however, brother seems most likely to me.
