I have an ancestor named John Hurst b 1803 in Clermont County Ohio. He lived in Highland County, where he married Sarah Stearns, and had a family there. I have proof a son was born in Highland co. He moved on to Ill. by 1840 Wayne Co., then on to Williamson Co., then to Jefferson Co., then to Franklin Co. where he died.
In 1881 he marred for a third time to his house servant girl, and stated his father was John Hurst, and mothers maiden name was "Poe" John stated his parents were born in Maryland.
I am seeking information, proof, etc. of this Hurst and Poe connection.
A 1820 Ohio census index book I seen 20 years ago said that John Hurst was in Clermont Co., Tate twp. There were also 4 Poe men in the same Tate township. Edward, Jesse, Joseph, Joseph Jr.
Do you have reference on them?
Ancestry.com transcription calls out John last name as "Hunt"
