According to death records my g-great-grandfather FRANCI HURST was born in IRE. in 1812 his parents were ALEXANDER HURST and MARY JOHNSON he also had at least 2 brothers JOSEPH HURST & WILLIAM HURST also born in IRE. they cmae to CANADA between 1840 & 1850. FRANCIS &WILLIAM were married in CAN. but JOSEPH was married in IRE. and his son JOHN HURST was born in IRE. HURST is an unusal name in IRE? does anyone have any of these names in there family history? any info would be greatly appreciated as i have hit a brick wall in my research in CAN. FRANCIS nad his wife ALICE NUGENT moved to MICHIGAN U.S.A. in 1870 and JOSEPH moved to MICHIGAN abt 1880 WIILIAM died in CANADA in 1863. regards JAMES E. HURST.
