William Wallace Hunter has been a lifelong resident of Raymond Township. He was born on the old family homestead October 4, 1862, his parents being William and Andica (Boyd) Hunter, who are mentioned above. He is indebted to the district school system for educational privileges which were accorded him and he began life on a farm, choosing to follow the occupation to which he had been reared. He has since carried on general farming and dairying and he keeps on hand a good grade of Holstein cattle. He is now operating eighty acres and the tract is in a high state of cultivation, for he employs modern farming methods in the work of plowing, planting and harvesting.
In 1895 Mr. Hunter was united in marriage to Miss Augusta Anderson, a daughter of Nels Anderson, who was one of the early settlers from Norway. Mr. Hunter belongs to the Ancient Order of United Foresters. In politics he is a republican and has filled the office of town treasurer, but he cares little to hold office, feeling that his time and energies are fully claimed by his business duties and interests. The name of Hunter has long been associated with the agricultural development of Racine County and the work instituted by the father is being carried on by the son with continued success.
