In Response To: Hurst Descendants Part II ()
Hi Dawn, thank you so much for the information.
Also there were Burkes and Herringtons, who married Hursts, and I noticed these surnames in the information you sent me.
We have, Allen Burke, born 1844 in Burke County. He married, Bethia Herrington Burke on 1-9-1881. According to the Burke County 1900 census, they had 6 children.
We also have an Joseph/Joe Hurst born 1877, who married Emma Herrington Burke, born 1882.
There is also a Aaron Hurst born 1840?, wife's name Mary, born 1846? they are listed on the 1890 census of Burke County, as having six children.
I also have a copy of some papers showing one Lucy Herrington, who had a son Red Herrington. Documents were witnessed by one L. Lovett and A.J. Lovett. There is also mention of one Charles Hurst or Hursh and he is listed as the Sheriff of the County of Burke. Document is dated April 1896.There was also one Lucy Herrington, who had a daughter Emma, who marred a Hurst. It seems our Hursts and Herringtons lived in the same location as the family's of Jennie Cooper, B. F. Bargeron, J. L. Herrington, Alfred Herrington, W.L. Lovett and J. I. Herrington.
If this is the origin of how my husbands family acquired the surname Hurst, then maybe I can find out their slave origins. I would have to find out if slaves were bought to Burke County by Ship, and where the ships originated from. Probably when the first slaves were bought to
Anyway, thanks again, your information has helped tremendously.
