Many of the Scottish kings were buried at Iona Abbey, at Reilig Odhran, or Burial Place of the Kings, which is today nothing more than a mount of earth close to the abbey. The headstones have long since gone.
I have been a contributor to Find A Grave for 8 years – 5 months – 28 days, Find a Grave ID #47833985, and continually add Hunters especially in cemeteries when we travel. Find A Grave just tells me on my app where, and how many Hunters are buried in that particular cemetery.
I also have a few friends from FAG who are located in Scotland and England who are nice enough to share their photographs of the Hunter headstones they have taken.
GENERATIONS My life cycles ever around My Memories grow Entwining the memories of generations My mind holds the memories of my past, The visions of my childhood, The dreams of my parents and grandparents, The tears of my frustrations and the glow of my joys. My life ticks out my destiny Vitalizing the lives of my children and my children's children, Enriching the streams of my life. All the genes and tracings of my ancestors echo And imprint a mold for the living cycle of my life and theirs As it makes its way toward the sea. The rivers of the generations fuse The contributions of all my ancestral voices in my memory, My loves, my faith, my causes. In the cocoon of my heart, I do not stand alone. Watching the circling of the wheels of my life, For the generations of my ancestors support me.

I have been studying the Lairds of Hunterston for many years after finding I am a descendant of these awesome people. Their lives and stories are easily found on the internet. Hunter families are studies in Scotland, England & Wales, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and USA.
Wills and Probate records are a very important collection for our Hunter One-Name Study.
I really enjoy collecting early mentions of the Hunter surname and birth, marriage and deaths. This one is a birth from 1606.
