I am primarily in search of any information on these HUNTER, and BAUMGARDNER/ BUMGARDNER families. I am seeking information on, Anthony BAUMGARDNER/ BAUMGARDNER and wife, Elizabeth DAVIS and their daughter, Caroline BAUMGARDNER/BUMGARDNER, who married Hezekiah HUNTER, and I would certainly enjoy learning more about Sarah Adeline BUMGARDNER, daughter of John and Rhoda BUMGARDNER, who married William Harrison HUNTER, brother to the above mentioned Hezekiah HUNTER. I wonder if Anthony and John BAUMGARDNER/BUMGARDNER could have been brothers. Surely they were at least related in some way? I would be interested in any information on these HUNTER, and BAUMGARDNER/BUMGARDNER family’s, and their entire collective aligned families.
If you have any record of the people I mention below I would enjoy hearing from you! I have a great deal of tangled bits and pieces on my HUNTER family, and then again a large amount of information on the aliened families, so I would be happy to share any information I have. Would you please take a moment to look at what I have been able to pull together and list below on these HUNTER and BAUMGARDNER/BUMGARDNER families? Thank You, so very much for your time!
