Who Do I Think I am? Wow! part 13



Jason Henderson Hunter and his first wife, but third, “mother of his children”, Elizabeth Sherrell had five children. Two of the children were Andrew John Hunter (c1847 – 1896) and Mary F. Hunter (c1856-c1881).

Mary married John C. Julien. John C. Julien was Jewish. Andrew John Hunter did not like that at all. Andrew and his wife Amanda highly disapproved visibly and vocally.

John and Mary had two daughters Margaret Canzadia and Ida Mae Julien. John started a ranch. As fate would have it John and Mary died and the daughters were handed off to Andrew and Amanda to raise.

John and Mary had two daughters Margaret Canzadia and Ida Mae Julien. John started a ranch. As fate would have it John and Mary died and the daughters were handed off to Andrew and Amanda to raise.

John and Mary’s ranch was quiet valuable when they died. The ranch was sold and John took possession of the money to “raise the two girls.”.

The two girls never saw a penny of that money.

Here is what I have on the oldest daughter Margaret Canzadia Julien:

While Margaret was still a child, her father John Julian, perhaps after his wife died, moved to Idaho where he owned a ranch. Margaret was raised by her uncle John A. Hunter, and his wife Amanda. Later the Hunters kept the money from the sale of the Idaho ranch. This upset Margaret's daughter, Gladys. But Margaret would not let Gladys or "other relatives" (Ida Mae's family?) file a lawsuit. Apparently, Margaret even destroyed some papers that would have increased a lawsuit's chance of success.

Maxine Ferguson:
"The Hunters were Maggie's mother's brother and his wife. Very austere persons. Maggie's father (John Julian) may have been Jewish, and that is where the Hunters drew the line. Margaret's father was not wealthy but well off."


Two sons died at birth.

Margaret Julian


Margaret lived with her daughter Gladys until she died in the mid-1950's. David Willis remembers her as a pleasant, quiet lady who made pumpkin pie for him and his sister.

Idamae Julian

The other sister Ida Mae was last heard of saying she was going to San Francisco. Just recently have I found her family line trickle down to present time. It trickled down to a gent who doesn’t like to email or write letters, so as the saying goes, I have what I have.
