I am the ggg-grandaushter of Edward Gunter. His daughter, Elizabeth Gunter-Rider was my grandmother Lydia Thomas Crockett's Grandma. Elizabeth Gunter married Alexander Mccoy Rider and they had my grandmother's mother, Catherine Rider-Thomas. My Grandmother was born and raised in the Talequah, OK area until she married my grandfather. I have a tin picture of Elizabetha and her brother Daniel Mccoy Gunter.
I was contacted years ago by a gentleman that lives in Guntersville and told me he lives on the reservation that was owned by Edward Gunter. He said he had duplicated the home that Edward owned on the reservation. He invited me to come and see the property however I don't remember his name. If anyone knows I would appreciate the information.
