I am looking for information about a family, surname HURSH, who are cousins of mine. They lived in Wichita County, first in Iowa Park and then Wichita Falls, beginning about 1893.
The parents were John Morhiser Hursh and Elizabeth Angeline Aldrich. John was the son of John Hursh and ?. He died by 17 Jan 1912. I found one piece of his probate, the inventory with the above date, in the probate minutes, but could not find others.
Elizabeth was the daughter of Solomon Aldrich and Adah Antoinette Williams and a Mayflower descendant. Elizabeth died in 1945 but I don't have an exact date or a location.
They had the following children know to have lived beyond infancy:
John Philip4 Hursh b. 5 Apr 1890 Apishapa CO; he married an unknown person prior to his WWI draft registration. No other info has been found.
Frank Herbert Hursh b.5 Sep 1893 Iowa Park TX, prob. died Oct 1964. He married Mrs. Ora L. Humphries 16 May 1926 (Wichita Falls?) Wichita Co. TX. They are probably the parents of Elizabeth Louise Hursh born on 15 Aug 1927 and
Frank Herbert Hursh Jr. born on 5 Apr 1929, both in Wichita Falls. I found those births in the birth index but could not find them in the records. Was Ora the Ora Brumsteter who married Herman B. Rogers 17 Jul 1913, Wichita Co. TX (record #3108, p.276 )? Her surname on children's births is not clear in index but could be Brumsteter. I could not find a Humphries marriage to an "Ora".
Carl Aldrich Hursh b. 5 Oct 1895 Wichita Falls TX, d.Jun 1978, last res Las Vegas, San Miguel Co. NM. No record that he ever married.
Christine Hursh b.6 Sep 1897 Wichita Falls TX, d.23 Jan 1997 last res OK. She married [--?--] Smith. She had a child in New Mexico on 19 Jul 1930. By 1965 she was living in Las Vegas NM with her brother Carl, where they had a printing shop.
William Brewster Hursh b.4 Jun 1901 Wichita Falls TX, d.10 Oct 1994 last res. Wichita Falls. Apparently he married, as he had a child, presumably William Brewster Hursh Jr. b.15 Jun 1931 TX, d.6 Aug 1997 last res. Wichita Falls.
