Many thanks to Carl Johnson for this submission.
The family was originally of Welsh extraction and the name was originally spelled "Hurtte," instead of the HURT. My great-grand fathers name was Moses HURT and his wife's maiden name was TURNER. My grandfather was William HURT born in 1757 but it is not certainly known whether he was born in Virginia or Wales. I have been told that he spoke English with a brogue, which would seem to indicate that he was foreign born, though not necessarily so. At the first authentic history of him, he was residing in Bedford County, Virginia. He is the ancestor of all the HURTs who reside in this county. He enlisted as a soldier in the 14th Regiment of Virginia Continentals. He spent the winter at Valley Forge where his feet were severely frost-bitten and he did not entirely recover from the effects of his exposure there during his entire life.
Shortly after the Revolution ended he came out to Kentucky and resided in Bourbon County. On making a journey to his old home in Va. he spent a night or nights in the house of John FIELDS (Moths ate the rest of the first page.) -------- acquainted in this way, they very shortly thereafter married and she returned to Kentucky with him. John FIELDS, mentioned here, became in after years very prominent as a merchant in Columbia, Kentucky and was the father of Dr. Samuel B. FIELDS. Mrs. Sarah FIELDS, who married William HURT, was formerly a Miss WHITE and the sister of Capt. Thomas WHITE, who died at the place where Mr. Junius Willis now lives (Mack's father) (now Jack Smith's) WHITE was an old Revolutionary War Captain (------ moths-----) through John P, Anderson in fact. The deed which is of record in the Adair County Courts clerks office shows that he (William HURT) purchased at this time 540 acres of land for the sum of one hundred pounds and Anderson made acknowledgment of the deed before the Fayette County court. (------ moths -----) accounts kept by him and which I now have in my possession contain a long list of names of his customers and which names are not familiar in this County. He spells the word Kentucky, at that time, 1792, as follows viz.; "Cantucky." After he purchased the land above mentioned he came to live upon it bringing with him his stepson, John FIELDS, and two Negroes whose names were Thomas and Rebecca ------ moths ----- The first clearing made upon the farm was upon the hill between the lane and the bluff near the sinking branch and upon the right hand as you go from the Crocus road to the dwelling house. At this point, in the fall of the year 1793, my grandfather, with the assistance of John FIELDS and the Negro Thomas, cleared a patch of land and erected a cabin. In the winter of 1793 or 1794, my grandfather returned to Bourbon County to bring his family and his household effects, leaving John FIELDS and the Negroes to continue the work (account of Mrs. CASEY mending FIELD's britches). In the spring of 1794 my grandfather returned from Bourbon with his family and a cart drawn by a yoke of oxen. This was the first wheeled vehicle used or brought into the county and he was the first man to open and live on a farm unprotected by a stockade or blockhouse in Adair County. His only and nearest neighbor was Colonel William CASEY. His journey from Bourbon County was made by way of Greensburg, where at that time, there was a frontier fort. A party accompanied him as far as Greensburg to assist in opening the way for the cart, as well as to protect him from the Indians. At this point he was met by Captain John BUTLER, Champ FARRIS, Samuel WHITE and others who were then residents of Adair County and the persons accompanying him then turned back. When they camped for the night my grandfather told the men that in the bottom of the cart was several pieces of bacon and a keg of whiskey. The men had not tasted bacon in several years, they having lived during that time on wild meat of the forests, they unloaded the cart, drank the whiskey and ate the bacon without cooking it, so keen was their desire to again taste the food of civilized life. The result was that all became intoxicated and while in this conditions party of Indians falling upon them, killed FARRIS and dispersed the others. They escaped with difficulty and had a severe bout in driving the Indians off. The men then escorted HURT and family to their farm.
After this beginning settlers came fast and in a very few years a great many had come. Among those who came and resided near to him were Capt. Thomas WHITE, Jesse WHITE, John C. WHITE and Garnett CONOVER, the last named was then called Garnett GOVENHOFER.
In those early days, the buffaloes sometimes came up with his cattle (here was the story of Indians stealing his horses which we have in print). He seems to have been a very prosperous man and in a few years was the owner of twenty or more slaves ( ---moths --- ) He was a wheelwright, which in that time was a very lucrative employment. He was also a distiller of whiskey and brandy and I have a great many times seen the old stone walls of his distillery, which stood west of the dwelling house upon his farm about 250 yards from the house and just beside where the Crocus road was formerly located. An old neighbor of his in Bourbon County by the name of CONOVER apprenticed two of his sons to him that they might learn ( --- moths --- ) about the year 1802 or 1803, he removed to the town of Columbia, where he kept a hotel.
In the year 1810 William HURT built a grist mill upon Petitts Fork just below the Cedar Cliff. When I was a boy a small portion of the old dam still remained.
About the year 1803 or 04 he erected a dwelling house upon the site of the present dwelling house upon said farm. It stood where the kitchen and dining room is now located. It was a two story, house of logs, sealed and weather-boarded and had a cellar underneath ( --- moths--- ) planks were sawed out from the logs with whipsaws. My mothers uncle, Cyrus MONTGOMERY has told me that when he was a boy, this house was the talk of the neighborhood-being regarded as a very fine house. This house had a very large log kitchen, which according to the custom of the times, was situated some distance from the house, and between it and the spring. (My father recovered both of these buildings about 1867 or 1868) (--- moths---) The front of this house when first erected was to the West. Afterward when the-I Crocus road was changed to its present location, the front of the house was changed to the East and my father between 1850 and 60 erected the frame portion of said house. This farm was owned continuously by members of the family from the year 1793 until 1904.
At the time of my first recollection on the north side of the dwelling house and between it and the bluffs of the Sinking branch was an apple orchard of very large trees. All of these trees have long since disappeared.
The first cucumber known to have been grown in the neighborhood was grown near the spring in the Roper field upon said farm. My Uncle Alban HURT was then a small boy and had received very explicit directions not to pull the cucumber. Shortly, however, the cucumber was observed to be missing. Alban was suspicioned as being the thief, and being pressed confessed his guilt. He, however confidently relied upon escaping punishment, by insisting he had only been warned not to pull the cucumber and that he had not done so - that he had lain down and eaten it from the vine.
My grandfather was a very partisan Democrat in politics and in the year, 1800, rode from his home to Greensburg, a distance of 20 miles, to cast his vote for the electors for Mr. JEFFERSON, in his first race for President.
In religion my grandfather was a Baptist, until the coming of the Church of the Disciples or Reformed Church, when in his old age he attached himself to this Church.
His first wife died in the year 1814 and in the year 1817 he married a second time. His second wife was Elizabeth MCMURRAY, who at the time of their marriage resided in Barren County where ( --- moths---) (account of settlement between Cyrus MONTGOMERY and William HURT we have this in print.) Fisticuff fights were the custom of that day. John C. WHITE, a neighbor, was a great and successful fighter and had never been bested by any one in the County. My grandfather sent to Virginia for Hugh DOUGLAS (a man of this name, married Mildred HURT, a daughter of William HURT. Probably the same man.) who was a renowned pugilist and offered him the sum of $500 which was a large sum of money at that time, if he would come out to Kentucky and whip WHITE. DOUGLAS came and he and my grandfather went to where WHITE was engaged with the other neighbors in building a house at the place where Richard DOHONEY now lives (on the hill).The challenge to fight was accepted and both men stripped to the waist. WHITE with his first blow knocked DOUGLAS to the ground but he recovered aria #a gave WHITE a severe beating. My grandfather then paid DOUGLAS the $500 and he returned to Virginia. It is related that when DOUGLAS fell at WHITE's first blow, my grandfather said, "Tutt, tutt you scoundrel, I will not pay you a cent."
Nathan HURT was a brother of my grandfather, William HURT, but whether older or younger, I do not know. He came to Adair County at a very early day, probably before the year 1800. His dwelling stood near the line between the lands of John N. CONOVER and the BARGER farm and near to where the Sinking branch comes out of the ground in said CONOVER's field. I have not the date of his death nor any information in regard to it but it was several years previous to 1840. His family and descendants have all been gone from this county for a great many years except the VAUGHNs' and LEWIS' of whom I will hereafter write.
Nathan HURT was the father of the following children: 1.-Frances-who married
Zachariah VIGRESS. Nothing else known.
2.-Nathan HURT Jr. - nothing is known of him except that he was a very large and physically powerful man and a great pugilist.
3.-Charles HURT- He was a constable in Adair County in 1810 and raised a family. His daughter Seney, was the wife of Daniel LEWIS. I saw her in the year 1885 when she was very old. She had a son, Wilson LEWIS who died about the year of 1880 and left several children, who have resided in the State of Texas for many years. A daughter of Seney LEWIS married John Wesley McKinney who resides in this county but I know of no descendants. Joel HURT (son of Alban HURT, who was the son of William HURT and a first cousin of Charles HURT) first married a daughter of Charles HURT. She died without descendants. Then Joel married CABBELL.
4.-Peyton - no information or tradition.
5.-Mildred - married William WINN.
6.-Allen - no knowledge of him.
7.-Ruth - married Jesse ROGERS.
8.-Dicey - Robert CALLISON.
9.-Sarah William VAUGHN. She had several children but I have never known the name of but one. Her son, Oliver C. VAUGHN died about the year 1874 or 75. He was the father of Oliver C. VAUGHN, Jr. and Bram VAUGHN. His daughters:
(1) Zora married Thomas TURPIN;
(2) Abbie married Geo. CHEATAM;
(3) Minnie married Frank JUDD;
(4) Laura married Thomas COOK; and
(5) Helen married John CHARLES.
Sarah HURT VAUGHN's family with the exception of Oliver C. went to Missouri many years ago.
Dr. (---moths---) HURT, who died about the year 1890 at Springfield, Tennessee, where he had resided for many years, was born in Adair County and was a grand son of Nathan HURT, Sr. but of which of his sons he was a son I do not know. Napolean B. HURT, who was a druggist at Lebanon, Kentucky. Henry HURT, once the proprietor of the Arlington Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky and Richard HURT, an actor, were brothers and were born in Todd County, Kentucky. They were also grandsons of Nathan HURT Sr., which one of his sons was their father I do not know, probably Allen or Peyton HURT. The above named children of Nathan HURT, Sr. seems to have disappeared from this county so long ago that no persons, during my recollections, have ever known anything of them except the little above stated by me. They seem to have gone before the year 1840.
WILLIAM HURT'S FAMILY HISTORY
William HURT married Mrs. Sarah White FIELDS in 1780 in Bedford County Virginia. She was born September 16, 1757 and died in 1814 In Adair County, Kentucky. Their children: (A) Mildred - born 1780 married Hugh DOUGLAS on January 25, 1796. The date of herdeath is not known. I have never heard of any descendants of hers except a grandson whose name was Dominicus DOUGLAS, and who was accidentally shot and killed by Henry BURBRIDGE at Butter Pint (Gadberry) during the Civil War. About 25 years ago, I knew a man in Metcalfe County whose name was DOUGLAS but whose Christian name I have forgotten, whom I have since learned was a descendant of Mildred DOUGLAS, but I did not know of it at the time I saw him, and have never heard of him since.
(B) Sallie (Sarah) - married Samuel MORRIS on December 2O, 1817 (on Green
County record). She died between 1870 and 1875. I have seen her I was a child.
Her children of whom I have known or heard:
2. James Francis - married Clarissa Emmaline GILL. They lived near the Loy graveyard on the Carding- factory branch. Great singers.
(C) Achney Berry - married Sallie (Nancy) CARLISLE on October 8, 1807. Her father was James CARLISLE. Their children:
3. Melinda, wife of Frank WEBB.
4. Susan (reared by Aunt Susan HURT BURBRIDGE); wife of Joseph MCCLAIN and afterwards wife of James Vigus.
6- Clementine, wife of _______ ATKINSON and afterwards WINTERS.
Achney Berry/HURT was a man of good education and promise. He resided upon the farm where Robert ALLEN, deceased lived for many year and is situated on the west side of Petitts fork. Sometime previous to 1840, he became deeply in debt and because greatly discouraged, shortly he disappeared from the community an( was never heard or known where he went to or what became of him afterwards. His conduct in abandoning his wife and family and going away so that no trace of him was ever afterwards discovered seems at this distance of time to be very ______, but it may have been less worthy of condemnation, if I had known all the circumstances, which I do not.

who was born August 17, 1778 and died April 27, 1835. Their children:

When a child, I remember to have been at his house and he was then a very old and decrepit man. Also remember when my brother J.W. HURT came home one morning and announced that our Uncle Billy HURT was dead. The above named children of William (my great-uncle Billy) were all persons of good reputation so far as I ever knew or heard. Of the one called Felix Grundy I have no history, except that he was a great dandy and excessively polite in his manners. Bram HURT was a very eccentric man. He left a daughter, who is still living and was the wife of William J. Winfrey and now lives on Damron's creek in this county. Oliver was a soldier in the War with Mexico in 1847 and afterwards lived in California and Oregon. He was never married and amassed a considerable fortune before his death all of which he devised to persons other than his kindred.

5 - _____________
All of whom are dead except last named.
(H) James HURT
He lived and died an old bachelor. He was a very eccentric man. He would never in his life do any kind of manual labor or any other kind of labor. When a boy he would sit in one side of the house while my grandfather sat on the other side. He did this because my grandfather, who believed every one should be industrious, would compel him to go work or leave his sight. The result was that the old gentleman would occupy the shady side of the house and Uncle James would thereby be compelled to sit on the side where the sunshine was exerting its utmost. The old gentleman would move around the house as the sun passed around and Uncle James would also move in order to be out of sight/of Grandfather and hence would have to sit in the sunshine all of the day which he would do in preference to working. When James was a young man my grandfather gave to I-him the farm near Tabor Church where J. Leslie Johnson now lives. Uncle James rented it to John C. WHITE for one year for 14 barrels of corn. Uncle James-, soon afterward was passing near the spring where WHITE and Dr. Bram WHITE, who was then a boy, were engaged in sawing with a whipsaw. Uncle James boasted of his great fleetness in running, when John C. WHITE proposed that he make a race on foot against Dr. Bram WHITE and the result was (one page missing). (I imagine Uncle James bet his corn crop and lost.)
(I) Clemmy born November 1, 1797 - died September 16, 1886; married Robert
MONTGOMERY Dec. 20, 1812. Their children:

9. Mary S. married Dr. W.B. MONTGOMERY
10. Sallie Mildred married James B. MURRELL in 1852 (Marriage Book II p. 168).
11. Serena married Joseph PATTERSON.
Serena and Joseph PATTERSON resided in the Joppa community near Zion Church in Adair County. I do not know how long before but a number of years before the Civil War, PATTERSON was murdered and his body thrown into a sinkhole, where it was shortly found. The circumstances pointed to his wife as being the guilty one or at least an accessory and she was arrested and placed under guard at her home. My father realizing she would be found guilty at trial and hanged and thinking this a disgrace on the HURT family, rode one horse and led another near the house and set up a ladder to the little upstairs window where she was staying, got her out and slipped away from the guards and they rode posthaste to he house of Mr. Jack BULLINGTON, near Edmonton, in Metcalfe County where he arrived early in the morning. From this place, she with the assistance of BULLINGTON, escaped to the state of Illinois, where she lived until her death, which occurred 30 or 40 years ago. There she married again and brought up a large family. Two of her sons were soldiers in an Illinois Regiment during the Civil War and was stationed at (---moths---).
