Excerpt from The Jerseyman, 1893, Vol. 2: A Quarterly Magazine of Local History
Hunter, a successful merchant then doing business in Philadelphia, Pa.
Of his parentage nothing definite at pres ent is known but the presumption is that his parents were Scotch Covenanters driven from Scotland through opposition to their religion into the North of Ireland many of whom settled at Coleraine. They must have been very devout Presbyterians from the fact that we find James Sterling in early life to have been a strict Presbyterian, living up to the rules of his faith not only at church but in every walk of life and his home.
His uncle watched over him with the care of a wise father, instilled in him the virtues of a successful business career and guided his course to the age of maturity when he was fitted most wisely to enter upon the duties of an active business life.
