Thanks much for all the great information. I thought possibly that Sherman Hurt, born 4/4/1872 in Pike County, IN. was the son of Sherman Hurt b. Ky and Margaret Wright. That Sherman I had as Sherman Hurt b. Ky, son of Larkin Hurt and Jane Sloan. Larkin Hurt b. 1825 and Jane Sloan b. 1827 possibly married in Wayne Co., Kentucky January 02, 1843. But I did note in my file that Sherman Hurt might have been born before Larkin Hurt and Jane Sloans' mariage date. So I have been pursuing the wrong line and was all mixed up.
Another problem is where is Elizabeth Jane Hurt in 1880? There were several Elizabeth Hurts in Pike Co., IN, at least two born around the same time.
Is Elizabeth definitely the below and divorced? And is she later married to Martin Copeland b. 1866 of Pike and Greene Co., IN. and when? Possibly I need to pursue divorce records for Elizabeth Hurt? Miley? in Pike Co., IN.
