Mr. Hunter's Grave Jerry Smith jerry smith jsmith@tast.com Joe Mitchell wrote about George Hunter in "Mr. Hunters Grave". I'm an unapologtic fan of Mitchell's (we're both native North Carolinians); I even went to NYC specifically to visit McSorley's after reading about it in one of his signature works. The Hunter story was written in the mid-1950s and Mitchell died in '96. I'd love to hear from anyone who knows when Mr. Hunter died, anything about how his life changed after the story was published, if any of his ancestors remain in the area, etc., and finally, where the Tottenville cemetery is located. many thanks!
