I thought I should add this information since I asked for help finding my family. In the Chancery records on the Library of Virginia website, I found my family. I was looking for William Samuel Hurts parents. His marriage record stated that his father was Samuel and his mother was S. P. Hurt. I found information on Samuel Jones Hurt and his wife Sarah Penetecost Hurt. It was a file on their divorce case, which I don't think was ever completed. It named several children and had testimonies from the older children as to how their father treated their mother. There was an application for DAR or whatever it is for the male decendants, linking Samuel Jones Hurt and Sarah Pentecost. Then having Samuel Jones Hurt father named as John Hurt, Chaplain in the Revolutionary war. On the application they linked to this John Hurt, who gave a famous speech to the troops in the Revolutionary War, had any children. So I'm looking for the father of Samuel Jones Hurt now. They lived in and around Prince Edward County in Virginia.
