INFORMATION ON
JOHN & RACHEL (WOOD) HURST

Submitted by: Christi Partee (christip2@cox-internet.com)

Dividing Line

According to the census records, put together with the oral family history typed up online regarding the family of John Hurst Sr. and Rachel Wood, their children and descendants, I find the following.

- - - - - - -

The tax list indicates that "a" John Hurst, was on the tax list of Izard Co., for 1830 (Izard Co., was what Marion Co., was, in part formed from after 1830).
According to family legend, John Hurst Sr., said to be the earliest Hurst pioneer of the area later known as Marion Co., AR., Also from family legend, he was married possibly twice and that at least one wife was named "Rachel Wood".
It would appear they both likely died sometime before the census of 1840 was recorded as neither appears in Marion Co., AR. at that time. There is a will found in the Independence Co., AR., records for a John Hurst, written and recorded in 1822, but further proof needs to be found to verify it was in fact the father of the men who first began to appear in Marion Co., records by 1840.
At least two "Hurst" men do appear as heads of households in 1840, John Hurst (Jr.?) and Abram Hurst. The following are the census and other records I have found in Marion Co., AR., with the name of Hurst, between 1830-1880.

According to the 1840 Marion Co., census, the following two men were heads of households in Marion Co., whose surname was Hurst, and the following shows the enumeration of their households.. I have drawn conclusions as to the identies and relationships of each, formed from all the records found in whole, and which will follow.
1.) Abram Hurst-1840
1 male under the age of 5 [* he would fit the age later shown for John McCurry Hurst].
1 male 20 to under 30 yrs old [* this would be Abram, head of this household, and give him a birth year of bwt. 1811-1820].
1 female 5 to under the age of 10 [* her age is 4 yr's too old to be Catharine of 1850, (who in 1850 shows a birth year of c1839) but ages varied from census to census, so it could be close enough...or...this was another daughter who died before 1850 and Catharine was actually born until later in 1840, after this census was recorded, and not in c1839).]
1 female 20 to under the age of 30 [* this would be his wife, told to be, in the family legend story, named "Rile", and she here, fits the age of a head of household I found in Marion Co., in 1850 headed up by an "Ariel Hurst", who had children, John 13, Catharine 11, and Lydia 9, in her home. Ariel (transcribed as Ann Hurst in household #207 on the online transcription, but if looking at the actual census image, it is Ariel), is living next door to the home of John S. Tolbert, with wife Sarah and children William and Mary Jane Tolbert, and also 23 yr. old, Mary Jane McCurry, the likely sister of Ariel, as is likely, the wife of John S. Tolbert, named Sarah, age 22. Ariel likely named her son, John McCurry Hurst after her own surname of McCurry.
The fact that Abram Hurst is not in the home with Ariel and their children in 1850, and can't be found elsewhere (yet) would indicate he likely died sometime bwt. the conception of daughter, Lydia b. c1841, and when the 1850 census was taken.]

2.) John Hurst-1840
1 male 5 to under the age of 10 [* this would fit son Abram, who was age 17 (c1833) in 1850]
1 male 10 to under the age of 15 [* this would fit son Campbell, who was age 20 (c1830) in 1850]
1 male 30 to under the age of 40 [* this would be John, who was age 43 (c1807) in 1850]
1 female under the age of 5 [* this would fit daughter, "Mary" who was age 13 (1837) in 1850]
1 female 5 to under the age of 10 [* this would fit daughter Martha, who was age 18 (c1832) in 1850]
1 female 10 to under the age of 15 [* this female is not yet accounted for in 1850-she either died, married or moved away from this county, or was missed on the census and in someone else's home at this time.]
1 female, 20 to under the age of 30 [* this should be John's wife, "Nancy Wood". Her age in 1860 was shown to be 40, (c1810), so she would fit this woman, if her birthday had not yet occurred when the census was taken in 1840].

Between this census in 1840 and the census of 1850, John Hurst and Nancy Wood also had the following sons; See them included in their home in 1850.
Robert J. (c1840)
John (c1841)
Alexander (c1843)

Wood, Martha 32 SC [* said by family legend to be called "Patsy" and her surname "Magness".]
Wood, James 11 Ark.
Hurst, John 4 (c1846) Ark. [* said by family legend to be John D. Hurst, son of William Hurst (c1817) and first wife Narcissa Magness. William is still living at this time, in household#67. John was later called "Uncle Jack". I have seen other information indicating his middle name to have been "Berry", so his middle initial may have been "B".]
Magness, Morgan {twins) 21 Ark.
Magness, Perry 21 Ark.

Pg. 313b - Oct. 19, 1850
#67
Hurst, William 33 (c1817) TN [* Family legend says this man was a son of John Hurst and Rachel Wood, who were said to be in ARK., <coming from KY)., by 1811. William here, is said to be the father of John D. (or Berry) Hurst, age 4 on this census, who is living in Soloman Wood's home, and possibly Mary Hurst age 6 on this census who is living in James Magness's home, one or both children said to be by 1st wife, Narcissa Magness a sister to Martha Magness, both, daughters of James and Narcissa's Magness. I can only assume that after Narcissa died, the children were taken in by other relatives as it would have been difficult for a widowed man to care for two young children. * William is shown here with the woman said to have been his 2nd wife, whom it is said, he had no children with. It also appears that this William later married a 3rd time, not long after the 1850 census to Martha "Patsy" Lynch, a widowed woman and may have had another daughter named Mary Martha Hurst, born c1855 with this wife. Therefore, it is uncertain as to if this Mary Hurst in Soloman Woods home in 1850 was William's daughter or belonged to another possible brother who does not appear on any of these census records, likely because he and his wife died before 1850. If the will of John Hurst of Independence Co., AR., of 1822 was the patriarch of this Hurst family, there were other son's named in the will. This will also stated that it was the wish of the soon to be deceased John Hurst that his children be taken to Tennessee. Therefore it's possible that if the younger ones spent many years in TN., after having been born in AR., and later returned to AR., that some, at least this "William", thought himself born in TN., as he may have been in TN., as early as the age of three.]
Hurst, Catharine 30 TN [* said to be Catharine Kavanaugh, the 2nd wife of William.
*No children appeared in this home at this time.]

#207-208
Hurst, Ariel 33 (c1817) 650 ILL.? [* said by family legend to be called "Rile", the widow of Abram Hurst, b. c1811-1820, a son of John Hurst and Rachel Wood, and brother to (John Hurst b. 1807). Abram was said to be deceased by this census.]
Hurst, John 13 (c1837) AR [* said to be named John McCurry Hurst. A "Mary Jane McCurry" age 23 is living next door, with the family of John A. Tolbert (Talburt) and wife "Sarah" (also said to be a McCurry by surname, sister to Ariel and to Mary Jane). It is likely that Ariel was also a "McCurry" before she married and family legend supports this.]
Hurst, Catharine 11 (c1839) AR
Hurst, Lydia 9 AR [* born after the 1840 census].

Magness, James Jr. 61 1000 SC
Narcissa 54 SC
William 19 ARK
David 17 ARK
Samuel 12 ARK
Joseph 10 ARK
Hurst, Mary 6 ARK. [* said by family legend to have been named "Mary Martha Hurst", a possible daughter of William Hurst, <b. 1817 and his first wife, Narcissa Magness. William is still living at this time, in household #67 with 2nd wife, Catharine (Kavanaugh). According to the family legend, James Magness was Narcissa Hurst father, so he and his wife, also named Narcissa, would have been the grandparents of little Mary Martha Hurst whom they took in, if the relationship guessed is accurate. * note however: William Hurst is said to have married a 3rd time to Martha "Patsy" Lynch and then died after having a daughter by this wife, also named Mary Martha, born c1855. In 1860 (see below), there is a Martha Hurst, an apparent widow for at least the 2nd time, with a young daughter in her home named Mary M. Hurst, age 5, in the home. While possible this William Hurst did in fact have two daughters by two different wives and name both "Mary Martha", the fact that the older one was still living when the 2nd one was born, makes it more difficult to accept.]

Hurst, Robert J. 18 (c1842) ARK.
John 17 (c1843) ARK.
Alexander 16 (c1844) ARK.
[*Note- Son, "Abram", born c1833 who would be age 27 in 1860, is not appearing in the home, nor can he be found by this name in Marion Co., or as a head of household in any other county or state (if not missed by the census index's). Either he died, was missed in another county or state index, or....as I had suspected, he was alive, and going by the name of "William Hurst" in 1860.
A "William Hurst" born 1833 in ARK., age 27 in 1860, was living in Marion Co., married to a woman named Cynthia and had an 8 month-old daughter, named Sarah Frances Hurst.
*See his household further down. It is likely that Abram was named William Abram or Abram William Hurst and it was not uncommon for adults to use one of their other given names or even nicknames, once grown. ***See further information which proves that Abram Hurst was the man called "William Hurst" in Marion Co., in 1860.
*Note also the two daughter's Mary and Martha are gone from the home above, likely married, but may not have lived to 1860. I have not researched them yet.]

Hariah Hurst white female - 43 IND. [*(transcribed as Hariah, but I believe this is another recording of the homes of Arial Hurst and her son, John, now shown to be living next door to one another-see below.). The two census's in different townships were recorded only 4 days apart, but it would appear that both hold the same family members, but with one additonal child and one additional man in the previous recording, and some other differing details. I can only assume that the census recorder did not do his duty correctly or that he was misinformed by whoever was around to provide the information. Compare those in these two neighboring homes below, to the one above, headed up by John Hurst.]

[* her age differs by 1 year from the Julia, above in Arial's home, and this 'wife' owns property, and her birth state was ILL. in the home above, but ARK. now in this home. It would actually appear that John and wife Julia's birth states were simply reversed (maybe by mistake by the recorder). It would also appear that John's property in the home above was at that time, combined with his wife and child's and his mothers, but now is divided up among them all.]
Mary M. 3 500- 300 ARK. [* her age differs by 1 year from Mary M., in Arial's home above, and she too owns property here in this home, at the age of three!
Something is fishy with this transcription.
*also, there is not a 1 yr.old daughter, "Sarah E." shown in this home, or in "Hariah's" above, but was in Arial Hurst's home. And....the 19 yr. old, John Williams is absent in either of these latter two homes.]

[While possible these are all different people with incredible similarities, I think it was an error by the census recorder. Remember too that the census recorders were paid by the number of homes they recorded. It is also possible that Arial, her son John and his family all lived on the 'border' bwt. two townships and were recorded twice in error, and the details just varied so greatly because of who gave the information, on different days, with one being more accurate and thorough and the other 'not'....or....this two-home family actually moved from one township to another in this 4 day period and they went from living in one house to living in two, next door to one another, and the details differed in what 'each' head-home member gave to the recorder.....and John Williams, age 19 did not move with them, and....little 1 yr. old Sarah died in those 4 days!.]

Tabor, 'Elizabeth" above, was born in SC., as was James Magness and his wife, so Elizabeth maybe another daughter, making her an aunt to young Martha. James Magness and his wife were elderly in 1850 and likely deceased by this time, so Martha was then taken in by another likely relative, a probable 'aunt'.
Martha's father, William Hurst is apparently also deceased by this census, as his 3rd wife, (according to family legend) "Martha "Patsy" Lynch" is found below (**see below) as a head of household, herself, without William.]

Hurst, William 27 (c1833) Farmer 800-350 ARK. [(*fits age and birth state of Abram Hurst, son of John Hurst and Nancy Wood.)* - Other records prove this man was Abram Hurst, including the headstone of his daughter, Sarah, which names her to have been the "d/o of A.B. and Cynthia", as well as a widows pension and minor childs pension by Cynthia and Sarah F., who applied for the pension for the service of husband/father, under the name of "Abram Hurst".]
Hurst, Cynthia 23 TN.
Hurst, Sarah Frances 8 months old. ARK.

[*this William Hurst, also called Abram and A.B. Hurst, disappears after last paying a poll tax in Marion Co., AR., in 1866. His widow, "Cynthia" later married a "Lyles", believed to be Almon T. Lyles a neighbor who was living two doors away from them in 1860 and whose own wife Paulina H., died in 1865. I can't find any of this family in 1870 or 1880.
However, Cynthia Hurst-Lyles appeared again on the 1900 Baxter Co., AR. census, widowed again & living in the Mill township, with daughter Eliza Lyles-Farley 26, born in ARK., also then widowed and one grandson, Edward Hurst age 17 born in AR, the son of Sarah F. Hurst. Sarah did not marry and Eddie was born out of wedlock, this information known from family knowledge. Eddie D. Hurst later married Frankie Rowlett.
Next door to Cynthia in 1900 was Thomas Lee Lyles age 31 born in ARK. and also believed to be a son of Cynthia's by her "Lyles" husband.
*Daughter, Sarah Frances Hurst died in 1887 and was buried in a cemetery on the banks of the Northfork River, and later moved to the Maynard Cemetery off of Hwy 101 bwt. the Veterans Bridge and Gamaliel, when the Norfork Dam was built and the river flooded to form the Norfork Lake.
Tax records indicate that 'a' William Hurst, a "W. Hurst", and a Wilborn Hurst died bwt 1859 and 1865 and Campbell Hurst was appointed Administrator on each listing of the 'desceased'.
It is likely that one, two, or all of these listed was William Hurst (b. 1817), an uncle of Campbell Hurst. ...and the estate may have gone into probate for a number of years and so the property was listed on each tax year during the process. No poll tax was paid on any, and was shown as n/a.
The one called "Wilborn Hurst" is one whose identity is unknown to me (yet), unless this was another name for William.]

I do not see a Sarah Hurst in the earlier census records who would fit this woman, unless she was an unmarried sister of John's, who previous lived out of the county, but her birth state is not the same as John's. However, as stated regarding the birth state shown in 1850 for William Hurst, b. c1817, a likely brother to John (c1805-1807), it could be that either John Sr., left KY., and was in TN. briefly (as William b. 1817 also gave TN. as his birth state) before coming to AR, or as stated earlier regarding the birth state of William, if this Sarah was a sister, she too may have be taken to Tennessee as a young child, and later believed she was born in that state after returning at some point to AR. Family legend does indicate John had a sister named Sarah, but that she married "Silas Farrier", and that they moved to California..so unless she divorced and retook on her surname, or by mistake, her brother told her name to be Hurst to the recorder or the recorder made that assumption, it is not known.]
