William Berryman Hurt (1804-1887) was born in Spartanburg Co., SC., and lived in Kentucky, and Sangamon County, Illinois). To my knowledge, he was the first Hurt to sport the Berryman name. Joshua Hurt (1782-1831) is the father of William Berryman. Joshua was married to Sarah "Sallie" Davis and later, to Elizabeth Pebworth. The mother of William Berryman is Sarah "Sallie" Davis. Do we know the origin of the Berryman name?...that is, is anyone aware of the marriage of a Hurt with or into a Berryman family? To date, I am unable to find any information about Sarah Davis.
