Mr. George Hardie Hunter

Mr. George Hardie Hunter, 36, and wife Maggie were British citizens among the group who transferred from the Cameronia.  They were both lost in the Lusitania sinking. George was born on 16 February 1879 in Aberdeen, Scotland.  He was a cabinet maker who emigrated to the United States in January 1906.  By that time, he was engaged to Maggie McGregor, and she followed him to the states in September of that year.  They were listed as residing in Atlanta, Georgia, before returning to Scotland on Lusitania.  The couple was returning to Aberdeenshire because Maggie had a terminal illness, and she wanted to die at home.
