There is a Jacob Lurton mentioned in Peter Cartwright's "Autobiography". This Jacob Lurton was a Methodist circuit preacher & preached in Logan Co KY in 1793. He preached for several years, then "married, and located in Kentucky, from whence he moved to Illinois, and settled near Alton, where he died..." Hope this helps. (ancestry's boards)
