Jacob Hunter Trust

We support historical research on the Hunter and Lee Families that descend from Jacob Hunter, a Revolutionary War soldier, and Braxton Lee, a veteran of the War of 1812. In addition, we restore and maintain family cemeteries that, over the years, were abandoned
or fell into disrepair.
