Abigail Hunter and her husband are buried in the Mt. Zion Cemetery west of Lake Butler, Florida in what is now Bradford Couty.

WILLIAM HUNTER was a Revolutionary War soldier, born in 1750 in South Carolina. He and his wife Catherine DeLoach died on the same day in Lowndes County, Georgia in 1857. He was 107 years old. He lived for 107 years, dying on the same day as his wife, Catherine. He entered the Army in the Orangeburg District of South Carolina on February 1, 1778 and served for twelve months. He was taken prisoner by the British in January of 1779. He was in the 3rd South Carolina Regiment commanded by Col. William Thompson. He applied for a pension in 1855, but was unable to prove his claim since his written discharge had been burned along with all his other possessions when his home in South Carolina burned in the 1830s. It was after this fire that he moved from Barnwell, South Carolina to Lowndes Co., Georgia. In 1812 he owned land in what is now Bamberg County, South Carolina. They lived in the vicinity of the Little Salkahatchee Baptist Church. They may be buried in the Bethel Primitive Baptist Church cemetery in Brooks County, Georgia.

It is believed that he married twice, the first wife and 2 sons appearing with him in the 1790 South Carolina census. He married Catherine DeLoach after 1795. They lived in the vicinity of the Salkahatchee Baptist Church. They had these nine children: Nancy (b.1800), Jacob Wilson (b.1802), Keziah (b. 1804, Jacob Bradbury (b.1808), Henry, Katherine, Abigail (b.1811), Susannah (b.1823), and Sarah Ann (b.1829).

After the move to Georgia, he and Catherine worshiped at the Bethel Primitive Baptist Church in Lowndes Co. He and Catherine sold part of a tract of land in Barnwell County, South Carolina
containing 100 acres (formerly Trotti land) for $65 in 1812.

In 1815 he sold 100 acres in Barnwell County for $225 to Samuel Pope.
