Samuel Hurt, Martha Belcher, James W. Vaught
I have been waiting to hear from you!!! These are my great-great granparents!! The information I started with was the names of Samuel Hurt and Martha Belcher. Their daughter Sarah is my great-grandmother. She married a man named James W. Vaught. They had a daughter named Virginia Pearl vaught who is my mothers' grandmother. She passed away in 1991 and we got what info we could. Sarah was born in Bluefield, Mercer Co., West Virginia. They are there in the 1870 and 1880 census: Beaver Pond, Mercer, WV. 1880 Census- LDS Family History Library Film #1255408, NA Film Number T9-1408, Page number 18D. I never had their birthdates and have been trying to find where Samuel came from. His father may be Fountain Hurt who lived in Virginia. Found that family including a Sam Hurt, in the 1850 Census at Northern Division, Bedford, Virgina. Sam is 7 at the time which fits the time frame for him.
Hope to connect sometime. I'm still researching and I hope you're still around!! Let me know!! My e-mail is [email protected]
