From the book Hurts from South Carolina to Wayne Co KY, the first to come to Pike Co IN were William "Billy" b 1797 SC m Temperance Bertram, Joseph Hurt b 1798 m Polly Eades, Esther Grubbs - possibly bur Blackfoot Cem, another family - James Henry Hurt m Sallie Burnett, John Calvin Hurt m Sally Tuggle,
Five of the 8 children of Joseph and Mary Hurt came to Wayne Co KY from Spartenburg District South Carolina. All of the Hurts in Wayne Co KY can be traced to William B. Hurt, Joseph Hurt, and James Hurt. William Hurt came to Virginia and had 1600 acres in King William Co VA. Deed Patrick Co VA 1830 names Heirs of Moses Hurt and representatives of Joseph Hurt, deceased. They intermarried with descendants of Jeremiah Burnett, Emmanuel Sandusky, Henry Tuggle. All fairly well documented. I have them all, whatever that says about Wayne Co KY. All have Revolutionary Soldiers.
Hope this helps. There is a researcher in Springfield Illinois who has the Pike Co Hurts. That was the first I had heard of them.
