      NOTES:
      Note 1: There are two Edward Hunters in Nauvoo. The Family Group from Rootsweb shows the relationship between the two Edwards. Edward Hunter born in 1821 had a father, William, born in 1784. William had a brother, Edward, born in 1793. The Edward born in 1821 and the Edward born in 1793 were in Nauvoo at the same time and are part of the same family.
      Note 2: The second family group record identifies why Edward Hunter is known as Jr. His name was really William Edward Hunter, named after his father, William Edward Hunter.
      Note 3: Nauvoo Land and Records Office has a copy of the book - Edward Hunter: Faithful Servant by William E. Hunter, M.D., edited by Janath Russell Cannon, published by Mrs. William E. Hunter. This book focuses on Edward Hunter (b. 1793), the uncle of Edward Hunter (b. 1821).
