Hunter was born in Ireland and came to America at age four with his widowed mother. They settled on a farm near Charlotte. At the outbreak of the Revolutionary War, he joined the army and during the war was recognized as one of the state's outstanding soldiers. He was ordained a Presbyterian minister after the war in 1789 and in the same year married Jane Ross, the daughter of a physician. For the next thirty-eight years he established Presbyterian churches in the North Carolina Piedmont and also practiced his needed medical skills in the backcountry.
