206. Benjamin Franklin HUNTER was born in 1829 in Speedwell, Claiborne, Tennessee. He died on 4 May 1862 in St. Louis, St. Louis, Missouri. He has Ancestral File number 1C0C-R08. From Ancestral File (TM), data as of 2 January 1996.

From a BB Posting from Bill Hunter:
Jasper DAVIS, son of Wiley and Jane (____) Davis, married Elizabeth HUNTER at Schuyler county IL June 5, 1844. Elizabeth died before 1863 and Jasper married (2) Ava (RILEY) Hunter, widow of Benjamin F. HUNTER, brother of Elizabeth.

In 1870 Jasper and Ava were living in St. Clair County MO and the children of Benjamin HUNTER were called DAVIS. I don't know whether they were formally adopted, but it appears they carried the DAVIS name.

The children of Jasper and Elizabeth (HUNTER) DAVIS were:

1) William H., born in 1846;
2) Sarah E., born in 1848;
3) Grace, born in 185?
4) Ann "Nancy," born in 1860.

The children of Benjamin F. and Ava (RILEY) Hunter, called Davis in the 1870 census, were:

1) Sarah Jane, born January 4, 1858;
2) George Washington, born October 15, 1861.

Does anyone have any info on any of these children? Who did they marry? Were there families?

Any information will be a great help.
