In Response To: Hurst Descendants Part II ()
This is a tremendous list and very helpful. Thank you very much.
It is my understanding that Jessie Anna Hurst from Russellville, AL is my great-grandmother, who married Edgar (Smith?) Grisham. Supposedly she was the daughter of William Barker Hurst, but I do not see the connection between William Barker and Jessie Anna on your post - does that sound correct? Any information you have on these two, or the other Russellville Hursts, would be welcomed.
I also have one crazy question. Rumor has it that William Barker Hurst spent time with the James-Younger gang (of Jesse James). Are you aware of this connection? Just curious.
Thanks again for all your help.
