Every Veteran Has a Story: Irvin F. Hunter

©By Larry Hume (VFW Post 8904) May 23, 2022 - Irvin Hunter was born September 1897 in Center, Shelby County, Texas. Center is located in far East Texas and serves as the county seat of Shelby. His parents Mary Tommie Larkin of Alabama and Frank Edward Hunter of Maryland were married October 26, 1881 in Grayson County, Texas by Reverend D. Jones. Irvin had five older siblings, Clarence, Mable, Irene, Susie and Pearl. Following him in birth were brothers Bryan and Ercelle. His parents operated a boarding house in Center where they no doubt all resided and each of the children would have had assigned chores. Mother Mary sadly passed in 1911 at the age of 41 when Irvin was only 14 and was buried in the Fairview Cemetery, Center. Two years later sister Irene married Edward Slade and moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth area and Irvin also moved there possibly living with his sister.(1)(2)

Paxton Methodist Weekly, May 22

May 23, 2022 - Sunday was the 6th Sunday of Easter. As promised by all the local channels, our part of the world got a nice rain last night. We had almost 2 inches in downtown Joaquin. Sunday morning also saw some cooler temperatures. All the plants in my little gardens and containers appreciate rain, and I appreciate not having to water. It is usually much later in the summer when I have to start watering every day.
