Craig, Elijah R. HURT 1807-1898 b. VA. Martha HURT nee RAGSDALE 1807-1895 b. TN, married 10-27-1827 in Williamson Co,TN. Both are buried at Sandies Chapel Cem. (Gonzales or Wilson Co,TX)
I am writing on behalf of my cousin, Anita (HOLSTEIN) Murph (their gg-granddaughter). Her line is through their daughter, Mildred Rebecca HURT who married John Perkins KEY 1853 in Drew Co, AR. We don't have documented proof, but Martha was the daughter of Robert RAGSDALE and Sally ANDREWS, married in Williamson Co, TN 12-27-1806.RAGSDALES are in Marshall Co, MS in 1840 census, Both RAGSDALES and HURTS in St.Frances Co, AR in 1850. Sally (ANDREWS)RAGSDALE deceased by then. Robert gets a couple of land grants in Drew Co, AR and they are all there in 1853.
We think Elijah was the son of Moses HURT of early Maury Co, TN and same Moses HURT in Tippah Co, MS in 1840 census? We think also that he was brother to Elisha HURT in of TN and in St Frances Co, AR 1850 (census takers confused their names on that census: Elijah says Elisha, etc.)?
Elijah & Martha HURT are in Golaid Co, TX by 1860 census. 1880 they are in Gonzales Co, TX.
The RAGSDALES and the ANDREWS came to TN between 1790-1805 from NC. Va before NC.
I have found some interesting info. on RAGSDALES going back to VA and England (Ancestry Library on the net). Have not had a chance to check it all out yet.

For speculation: Micajah ANDREWS married Elizabeth **JAMESON 1-26-1763 in Edgecombe Co,NC.
