I searched my records for a Jemima Hurst and didn't come up with one who matched yours. Here is all I have on John and Mary McCarty Hurst in hopes it'll help, even though they don't have a daughter listed named Jemima. One note I can make is this Hurst family wasn't in Indiana in 1795 when Jemima was born. I would concentrate on branches of the Hurst family that were in Indiana at a very early day as some were. She's probably a part of the huge DNA related Hurst family where names were common in widely separated branches. Jemima is a name found more than once in this family.

John Hurst was born March 13, 1769 in Frederick County, Virginia to Absalom and Elizabeth Hurst. He married on April 10, 1789 in Shenandoah County, Virginia to Mary “Molley” McCarty, daughter of David McCarty. John Hurst was listed on May 18, 1799 in Shenandoah County, Virginia, along with father Absalom. In 1800, Mary’s father David McCarty had his land sold. Listed as heirs was John Hurst and Mary his wife, both of Shenandoah County, Virginia. John Hurst signed the document.

In the 1810 census of Wythe County, Virginia, John Hurst is listed on p.281. John signed his name and Molly, his wife made her mark on the September 11, 1830 deed selling his father’s land to brother William Hurst, in Wythe County, Virginia. John Hurst, age 80, was listed in the Pulaski County, Virginia census of 1850. He died in Pulaski County, Virginia, about 1855, leaving a will on August 22, 1854, which was probated in August of 1855, Pulaski County.

In May of 1836 a “difficulty” arose between Dilily Nunn and Mahalay Hurst, wife of Andrew Hurst, both women being members of the Big Springs Primitive Baptist Church. This was apparently some disagreement, which ultimately could not be worked out. Dilily Nunn said she could not have Mahaley in the church and was therefore excluded, or expelled from the congregation. In 1850, Lily Nunn, as she was called, aged 58 and born in Virginia, resided alone in Claiborne County, Tennessee, next door to her son Abner.

The first record of Jesse Hurst is on a deed written by Fugate Clark in Wythe County, Virginia, February 27, 1821. Jesse Hurst and John Hurst (probably his father John), were witnesses. This will was proven in Wythe County Court May 9, 1826. Jesse lived in Virginia when his children Rhoten and Minerva were born from 1827-29. “Jesse Hurst Jr.” of “Claiborne County, Tennessee, formerly of With County, Virginia”, purchased land in Claiborne County, Tennessee, May 16, 1829 from Harriet Cooper. This 100 acres was located on the north side of Powels Mountain on the spring fork of the Sycamore Creek, adjacent to the land of John McCammack (husband of Nancy Hurst), James Sims, James Hill and Thomas R. McClary. John Hurst Jnr (Jesse’s brother), witnessed the deed. Jesse was again referred to as “Jesse Hurst Jr.” in the 1830 census of Claiborne County, Tennessee (p.104). His age was between 20-30 years at that time. He wrote a will but the record of it is lost. The Claiborne County Minutes for December 17, 1832 state that a paper purporting to be the last will and testament of Jesse Hurst was duly proven in court by John McNal, William Hurst and John Bartlet, subscribing witnesses. That same day, John Hurst (brother of Jesse), appeared in court and took the job of executor of the estate. The settlement of Jesse Hurst’s estate was filed in March 1833, Claiborne County. William Hurst owed his estate, per a note dated February 5, 1834. John Hurst (probably his brother “Squire”) served as executor of Jesse’s estate. Frances (Hawley) Hurst remarried to Andrew Reynolds.

On October 5, 1840, Andrew Reynolds presented papers in Claiborne County Court written in Roanoke County, Virginia Court on August 27, 1839, which gave him guardianship of the children of Jesse and Frances Hurst: Rhoten, Minerva, Ann Jane and Artesmia.

This couple lived in Roanoke County, Virginia, 1850. Rhoten Hurst married in Roanoke County, 1849 and died in Muncie, Indiana aged 80 in 1908. In their household were Minerva Hearst age 21 and Jane Hearst, age 17. Issue: Rhoten (1827-1908), Minerva (ca.1829- , Artesmia (1831-1922), Ann Jane (ca.1833-
