Four Generations of Hunters.  Left to Right:  

William A. Hunter (1842-1928).   William was born in Franklin, Macon County, North Carolina, fought in the CSA, Civil War, during the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain he was shot in the knee, recuperated in nearby Woodstock, and ended up living in the area;  

Herbert H. Hunter (1901-1976).  Herbert was born in Cherokee County, Georgia, probably near Woodstock, moved with the family to Marietta and was became a barber, he owned Hunter's Barbershop until he retired and sold it to Oscar Powell; Herbert is holding his son Ray Hunter (1923-1991).  

Ray is my generation, my oldest first cousin.   Ray served in WWII;  worked for a public utility company in New Jersey until he retired and moved back to his hometown (Marietta);  And Frank Paris Hunter (1879-1950).  

Frank was born near Paris, Texas, moved with his family to Woodstock, Georgia, the same year he was born.  He and his wife Minnie Tyson and their children moved to Marietta about 1905-06).  Frank was a machinist, he worked for the Atlanta Newspapers (Atlanta Constitution and Journal), Kraft Foods in Alabama, and mostly Glover Machinery only about two blocks from his last home.
