I found a narrative by Nathaniel C. HUNTER on the internet.  It appears, based on the content and what I already
know, to be genuine.  The information with an * in front is taken from that narrative.  Where it disagrees with
what I already have, I have either kept both pieces of information and indicated Nathaniel's with an * or I
verified the information, cited the source and kept only the correct information.
