This section is about my grandfather's children, which are my uncles, aunt, and father. Because of a thing about the genealogy program Family Tree Maker will only list you with a number if you have off-springs my uncle W.C. Hunter was not listed but I manually listed him in order. His entry will look a little different than the rest. Also, W.C. is the only sibling not in the above photo, but there is nothing I can do about that.
242. HAROLD HERBERT7 HUNTER (FRANK PARIS6, WILLIAM A.5 TRAMMELL/HUNTER, JASON HENDERSON4 HUNTER, JOHN3, WILLIAM2, SAMUEL1) was born 12 Feb 1901 in , Cherokee Co, Georgia, and died 14 Feb 1976 in Marietta, Cobb, Georgia. He married WILLIE C. COLLINS. She was born 14 Aug 1901, and died 13 Sep 1973 in Marietta, Cobb, Ga.
Notes for HAROLD HERBERT HUNTER:
Herbert was born in Cherokee County, Georgia. When he was a toddler his family moved to Hunt County, Texas, for a brief time. Before he was five they were back in Cherokee County, Georgia.
As a teenager he was his brother Robert "Bus" boxing manager. They were considering professional boxing Bus was getting beaten too many times.
As a young man in Marietta, Georgia, where he spent almost all of his adult life, he became interested in airplanes and is considered one of Cobb County's first aviators. He owned several planes and owned his own air field near the corners of Austell, Floyd, and Hurt Roads. When he was just getting started he and some of his brothers would go to a neighboring city (ex: Rome, Carrollton, ...) and find a friendly farmer that they could use his land for a temporary air strip and sell brief airplane rides.
He married Willie COLLINS (Aug 14 1901
Oct 13 1973). Theylived most of their adult married life (if not all) on Delk Street in Marietta. For the first years the back of their yard's corner touched his parents back corner. Their neighbor was the Delk Family, which the street was probably named after. Ironically, his neighbor the Delks were his biggest competitor in the downtown barber shop business.
Herbert owned a barber shop on Church Street named "Hunter's Barber Shop" It had a crackerbarrell atmosphere where men would discuss politics and sports (mostly fishing). The barber shop was closed on Wednesdays. That was the day that Herbert went to lake Alatoona and fished. His boat was docked at Alatoona Landing.

i. ROBERT GERALD "JERRY"8 HUNTER, b. 26 Apr 1941, Douglasville, Douglas Co, Ga; d. 25 May 1966, , , , Viet Nam; m. LAURA ANN MIILBY, 1965.
Notes for ROBERT GERALD "JERRY" HUNTER:
From the magazine LOOKING GOOD DOUGLAS COUNTY, Vol 1, Number 3, March/April 1988. Article JERRY HUNTER: he gave his life. By Vicki Harsbarger.
Jerry Hunter, 25, was about to complete his 34th mission of the Vietnam War.
The two months he had spent in Vietnam had been filled with missions such as this one. Supply lines were sought, supply lines were bombed.
The F-105 was a one-man jet requiring much expertise of the pilot. He delivered his bombs directly on the targeted bridge. The enemy fire hit the plane, he bailed out. The pilots watched as the parachute disappeared from sight in the trees.
From the ground, a beeper signal was heard by the pilots. They attempted a rescue, but enemy fire struck from the area of the area where the parachute had landed. A second plane was hit, and the pilots were forced to return to base.
Two months later, American soldiers were able to search the place where Robert Gerald Hunter went down. Laos natives took the men to the place where his body was buried.
Jerry began his final journey home to be buried in the town where he was voted most talented of Douglas County High School; where he dreamed of one day attending the Citadel; and where of dream of becoming a pilot began with an essay written on how Lindbergh's flight across the Atlantic would affect the future of aviation.
Awards came early for Jerry Hunter. He was honored with other superlatives at Douglas County High School, with his claim to fame the title of Most Talented. He was well known for his artistic talents, and worked as editor of the school yearbook. He starred in the senior play.
"If anything happens to him, he's doing what he wants to do", his wife of one year, Laura Ann Milby, had said of Hunter. His parents, Robert and Zelma, had suggested that he choose a line of work in keeping with his Citadel degree in business administration, but he would not settle for less than his dreams.
"He wanted to be the best." Zelma Hunter reminisces. "He always wanted to be a good pilot. He said if he made a good place for himself in the Air Force he would make a career of it or he would be become a commercial pilot," she said.
The handsome flyer passed all manner of physical tests toprove his fitness of pilot training, which he received at Moody Air Force Base in Valdosta following his graduation from the Citadel with honors. Minor surgery was suffered twice by Hunter in order to fly the F-105, Mrs. Hunter said.
"He didn't want us to worry," Mrs. Hunter says lovingly of her son. "I'd ask him on the telephone if he'd been shot at, wanting him to say no. He'd say, "Yes, but they missed. Don't worry about it, Mom, sometimes it's fun."
During the week while the Hunters awaited the return of Jerry's body, the Chamber of Commerce acting on a motion by Church of Christ Minister Richard Waggoner, passed a resolution recommending that the park be memorably named Hunter Park.
On July 18, 1966, the Hunters' hopes died with the news of their son's death and his returning body. On July 22, funeral services were held at the Church where Jerry became a Christian, First Baptist Church of Douglasville. The church was overflowing as the first Douglas County military and 11th Citadel victim of the Vietnam war was laid to rest.
Over 100 flags flew at Douglasville businesses, painstakingly placed there by the remembering hands of the Jaycees. The town was subdued as businesses closed for the afternoon.
As faces were in unison at Rose Memorial Gardens Cemetery toward the casket containing the remains of Robert Gerald Hunter, the sound of planes roared overhead, urging the mourners to gaze upward.
Four planes flew across the horizon in unison, three planes returned.

245. EDWIN TYSON "ED"7 HUNTER, SR (FRANK PARIS6, WILLIAM A.5 TRAMMELL/HUNTER, JASON HENDERSON4 HUNTER, JOHN3, WILLIAM2, SAMUEL1) was born 13 Aug 1911 in Marietta, Cobb, Georgia, and died 14 Jul 1988 in Marietta, Cobb, Georgia. He married ETHEL AMERICA "JANIE" PETTY 27 Feb 1937 in Marietta, Cobb, Georgia104, daughter of WILLIAM PETTY and FRANCES RIDLEY. She was born 06 Jun 1918 in Gillette, Campbell, Wyo, and died 24 Feb 1996 in Marietta, Cobb, Ga.
Notes for EDWIN TYSON "ED" HUNTER, SR:
Ed first worked at Glover Machine Works in Marietta where his father worked.
Ed first worked at Glover Machine Works in Marietta where his father worked.
He was in the National Guard. He had two memorable experiences in the guard: (1) He was guarding Calloway Mills against strikers - he was one of the guards guarding the residence of the Calloway Family. A man tried to break into their house. Ed and the man begin to scuffle and they fell off the porch. Ed fell on top of him and it killed the man. He had to appear in front of Governor Eugene Talmadge for him to officially pardon him for the murder. And (2) another time he was guarding the Governor's Mansion in Atlanta. He had orders not to let anyone in unless they had proof of business or an official pass. Eugene's son Herman Talmadge strolled up to enter and Ed refused to let him enter. After that they replaced him with someone who "could recognize the family".
He became a patrolman for the City of Marietta, and worked his way up to be the Chief of the Marietta Police (1949-1952). For a year or so he was a guard at Lockheed. Then he was the Chief of the Cobb County Police. Because of politics he left the county force and worked various jobs as a guard or law enforcer, which included the Kennesaw Police and a deputy of the Cobb County Sheriff's Department. In 1960, he ran with Buna Walker for the Sheriff's office, with Buna to be the Sheriff and Ed to be the chief deputy. They lost to Kermit Sanders (the incumbent). He was a armed truck guard for Wells Fargo when he retired.
Throughout his career as a policeman I have only heard of danger twice. Once he chased a suspect into an alley and the suspect turned around and pointed a gun at him and pulled the trigger - by some miracle it only clicked. Another time an angry arrestee slammed the barred jail door on his hand breaking it.
Little known fact: He had the talents of an artist. He could have been an illustrator or a cartoonist with a little training.
He was a great story teller to little children. He loved to sit a niece or nephew down close to him and tell him a long involved adventure story involving someone of their gender and age. The child would be completely absorbed in the tale that Ed weaved as he told it. Also, shortly before Christmas he would call his young nieces and nephews and tell them he was Santa with a hearty 'Ho Ho' and go over their list with them. He always looked very delighted when he hung up the phone.
He was a very gentle soft spoken man. I only heard him raise his voice once - and that was to our dog that would chase behind us in the car to town. That irritated him.
He didn't give religion a serous thought until he was in his fifties. Then he joined the Crestview Baptist Church and was saved. Then, a couple years later when they moved to west of Marietta he was a charter and active member of Due West Methodist Church.
He always wore plain dark dress pants and either a white dress shirt or a pale blue dress shirt. He never wore anything sporty like a shirt with a design, polo styled shirt or any kind of sport pants or shorts. It just wasn't him.
They lived in various parts of Marietta: Whitlock Avenue, East Dixie Avenue, Atlanta Street, Wayland Street, Manget Street, Richard Street, and Old Hickory Drive.
While we're writing about police, let's pay tribute to Ed Hunter a dedicated, honest officer of 50 years of service who died this week at 76.
Hunter was Cobb County Police chief under Commission Chairman Rholie Ward. When Ward went out of office, Hunter became Marietta police chief.
As county chief, Hunter was involved in an unforgettable incident. Thirty-five years ago, Cobb County was a dry county. If John Q. Citizen wanted a snort he had to "go to the river" to liquor stores in Fulton County along the Chattahoochee River.
But most private clubs in Cobb like the Elks, Legion, Moose, Marietta Country Club and at least two fashionable restaurants served liquor by the drink.
Hunter thought it hypocritical that his officers would arrest someone for having a scant of moonshine while liquor sales continued at private clubs.
So it wasn't surprising when Harvey Hester, the former Congressional Medal of Honor owner of Smyrna's Aunt Fanny's Cabin, rang up Hunter to ask him to arrest an employee who stole booze from the bar and stashed it away in the nearby woods.
Instead, Hunter sent a raiding party to Aunt Fanny's, booked Hester and confiscated a truck load of whiskey. Hunter didn't have a list of who not to arrest. If you violated the law, he arrested you.

Notes for LOLAGENE TURNER:
The Marietta Daily Journal on 23 December 1990 had an article about Lolagene by Jerry Huff. He recalled over twenty years ago when he was a reservist on active duty at Dobbins Air Force Base during the Christmas season. Being lonely and out of town the Hunters invited them to spend Christmas with them, which he did, and it became a tradition for several years. He returned in 1990, to find things some what the same, house full of kids (now grandchildren instead of children), chicken and dumplings, and the holiday spirit with decorations. What did change, of course, Doug was no longer there. He also mentioned that she taught the Joy Sunday School Class of Olive Springs Baptist Church where she was a forty-year member and an active member in the Eastern Star and that she work for the Cobb County Library System for many years.

Notes for JOHN STANLEY HUNTER:
Stanley was born in Marietta, Georgia, on Manget Street. In high school he was considered one of the top athletes of the time. He was captain of Marietta High School's football team in 1938.
Stanley was in the National Guards with his older brothers and went into the Army during World War II. He was in the D-Day invasion of Normandy.
Patrolman Ed Hunter, of the Marietta Police Department, has received from his brother, S/Sgt. John Stanley Hunter, a copy of orders that were read citing the 35th Division Inf., part in the Normandy Invasion.
The unit, according to the orders, attacked on 35 of the first 45 days of the invasion. It played a decisive part in the St. Lo Battle, overrunning key defense positions of the enemy.
The 35th spearheaded hand-to-hand fighting throughout the peninsula. Then it rushed through France often proceeding 100 miles a day in advance fighting, taking Cloyes, Chateaudun, and Orleans all in one day. Within a few days it captured 3,500 prisoners.
Sgt. Hunter, who attended Marietta High School, entered the service soon after graduation, and was assigned to the 35th in 1943, when it was training at Camp Rucker, Ala. The division entered Normandy June 5-6.
He was at one time a plain cloths detective for the City of Marietta Police Department. After that, he worked in the City's Electric Department. At one time he owned half of a service station of Powder Springs Street with his brother-in-law Jim Frasure. And then he worked for Lockheed in management until he retired. Now, he is a bailiff for the Courts.
They were very active members of the Maple Avenue Church in Marietta. Stanley's recipe for his famed peanut brittle is in the Cooking with Good Cooks from the Maple Avenue United Methodist Church (published 1988).
During their married life they have lived in various places in Marietta, mostly on the Westside, but have strayed twice north near Canton Road. Sarah now lives on Stewart Avenue in an older house that she and Stanley completely restored and remodeled.
