In that case, welcome to the family!
You have obviously put a lot of time and energy into this and I greatly appreciate all the hard work. Thank you very much.
I still have a few lingering questions that you may or may not be able to shed some light on.
Obviously a large contingent of Hursts moved to Russelville, Al (for reasons I can't imagine). Yet most of the Hursts stayed in GA. My father, who has little information on the previous generations, was born in Russelville and exposed to his relatives and said that everyone was dirt poor, yet only a couple of generations prior they were land and slave owners in GA - something went awry.
Do you have any thoughts on this? Pardon all of my questions, it is the scientist in me coming out.
