Albert G. and John P. Hunter formed a company named A.G. & J.P. Hunter which traded in Philadelphia in the 1860's and 1870's. By 1880 this had morphed into J.P. Hunter & Sons. [February 1, 2008]

From the OHS PC Database, derived from A Guide to North America Organ Builders by David H. Fox (Organ Historical Society, 1991). Updated Feb 7, 2016 with information from sources listed in Notes below. --

Albert G. Hunter was born c. 1803 in Pennsylvania.1 He was a partner with John P. Hunter (presumably his younger brother) as A.G. & J.P. Hunter, active in Philadelphia, PA, from about 1829 until his death in 1867. John was apparently his heir as Albert's only child, Martha Emily, died as an infant. 2 John continued the firm, and by 1880 it was known as J.P. Hunter & Sons.3
