Johann Wilhelm Jaeger, b. 1737 in Basel, Switzerland, d. 7 June 1823 in Cherokee Creek, Washington County, Tennessee

Johann left Switzerland and went to the Netherlands on March 5, 1740. He boarded the ship, Friendship, in Rotterdam, and arrived on September 23, 1740, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was a member of the Swiss Reformed Church until 1760.

Johann was naturalized as an English citizen on August 8, 1767, along with his father-in-law, Jacob Bowman, and changed his name to John Yeager. They did not take the oath of allegiance but were affirmed signifying they were of a pacifist, religious persuasion, probably the Church of the Brethern. In 1773, he adopted the English translation of his name, John Hunter. All following records, except the marriage record of his son, John, is recorded as John Hunter.

By agreeing to fight in the Revolution, he was no longer welcome in the pacifist church. He and his wife, Barbara, became members of the Baptist Church and were among the founding members of the Cherokee Baptist Church in Washington County, Tennessee. He served as a private in the Virginia Militia under Captain Abraham Lincoln in the Revolutionary War. After moving to Cherokee Creek in 1783, he apprenticed as a blacksmith which was his occupation for the rest of his life.

They had eleven children: John; Susannah Maria; Jacob; Henry; Abraham; Christiana; William b. 1775; Catherine; Joseph; Barbara; and Isaac.
