Her mother was Eva Bell Hunter (born 8/21/1895), who was the daughter of C harles Jefferson Hunter and Paralee Dobbs (who died when Eva was 2, so 189 7/1898). My grandmother says that Eva had a brother that moved to Texas a nd was a dentist. I belive this person is the A.C. Hunter you mention ed in your blog last October.
Any information you could share with me regarding Charles Jefferson Hunt er and his family, so that I can confirm or rule out this relation, wou ld be most appreciated!
