Dear Ms. Hunley,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We suggest that you search the FamilySearch index for Georgia Births and Christenings, 1754-1960, and request record searches from the Georgia Archives for substitute record sources such as probate records, church records, and newspaper records that may include more information about the birthplace and parentage of James E. Hunley.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
