Maple Grove Cemetery sign
William H. Hunter Grave Marker




      This grave marker which is at Maple Grove Cemetery, located at 535 Hudson Street, Hackensack, New Jersey, reveals that William H. Hunter served with an Army Aero Squadron (see note below) during World War I and died at the age of 68.

I do not know William H. Hunter relation to Percy Andrew Hunter who also served in World War I at this time, but it should be noted their grave markers were close to each other. 

William H. Hunter was not on the Original Honor Roll List which was in
The Evening Record October 5, 1918, but this confirms his connection to Hackensack by being buried within its borders since passing and forevermore.

Your grave marker confirms your service for which we are grateful.


Note from Wikipedia: Aero Squadrons were the designation of the first United States Army aviation units until the end of World War I. These units consisted of combat flying, training, ground support, construction and other components of the Air Service. After World War I ended, the majority of these squadrons were demobilized. Some however were retained during the interwar period of the 1920s and 1930s, and served in all theaters of operation during World War II. Today, the oldest squadrons in the United States Air Force and Air National Guard can trace their lineage back to the original Aero Squadrons of World War I.
