Samuel Hunter


SAMUEL HUNTER, one of the early arrivals, father of the first white child born in the town, having purchased lot 100 on the southeast corner of Third and Market Streets, kept a general store there until about 1825, when he left for Knoxville, built a flour mill and carried on a store for many years. He was a Presbyterian in religion, and active in public affairs, being town and county treasurer. The Jones Munker establishment now occupies that corner.
