A black and white portrait photograph of Mrs. James Hunter (Elizabeth Story) (1793-1863). This photograph is from "The Descendants of Dr. James Hunter" by Edwin G. Hunter, B.D., Frederick H. Hitchcock Genealogical Publisher, 1925.
Notes
Elizabeth Story was born at Pocklington, Yorkshire, England in 1793. She and Dr. James Hunter were married at York Cathedral in 1814, and she and her husband and three children emigrated to Canada in 1822. During the Rebellion of 1837, she was confronted by soldiers looking for her husband at her home in Whitby Township between Whitby and Oshawa. It is alleged that she threw papers which implicated her husband in the Rebellion into the fireplace to prevent soldiers from obtaining evidence against him. The family fled to Buffalo, New York in 1838, and Mrs. Hunter and her husband moved back to Brooklin in the 1840s. About 1856, the Hunters moved to Lewiston, New York, and Mrs. Hunter died at the home of her son-in-law, Dr. W.F. Bartlett, at Buffalo on February 20, 1863.
