John Hamilton HURT (b Lincoln Co., NC 27 feb 1869 and a twin) was son of Beauford Hervey Nealy HURT (b 18 jun 1835 in TX? d 12 dec 1895 in Asheville, NC, Buncombe Co.) The HURT family lived at 149 Flint St in Asheville, Buncombe Co. at one point. John H. HURT & wife (name unknown) had a son named Hervey (dates unknown). In 1909 the HURTS lived in Trenton, TN (Gibson Co) & then returned to Asheville (Buncombe Co). Hervey HURT had an orchestra & played piano. His wife was named Grace. She was a practical nurse and worked nights at the old Aston Park Hospital in Asheville. Grace had a sister who worked in a laundry in West Asheville. Hervey & Grace were listed in the Enka-Candler phone book and lived some 7 miles from the Square in Asheville (on gravel roads).
One of John H. HURT's sisters, Margaret Almetta HURT ("Alice") m NB "Newberry" McDEVITT from Madison County--a member of the NC House of Rep. The McDEVITTS are buried at Mars Hill.
Hervey HURT was my mother's first cousin & provided her some information about her ancestors that was not known to her. Can someone help with City Directory and/or obit information on the HURT family from 1895 to approximately mid 1960's? Hervey's band?
I need pieces of a big puzzle. Thanks
