My name is John Scott Hurley, III. As my Father and Grandfather before him, I use my middle name, Scott. The earliest ancester I have been able to document is Charles Hurley (d:1817) of Sussex County, DE. Charles married Mary Burton, and they had two children: Burton and Elizabeth. I have some information on the descendants of Burton, but none on Elizabeth's.
From Charles, my line of descent goes through Burton Hurley (d: 1830), Burton Whitefield Hurley (1827-1877), Luther Wilbur Hurley (1853-1934), John Scott Hurley (1883-1931), John Scott Hurley, Jr. (b:1911), and myself (b:1945). All of my ancestors were born and lived in and around Sussex County, DE. I have not been able to trace the Hurley line any farther back than Charles. I am especially interested in contacting anyone who may have information on Charles' ancestors.
I am also interested in talking to anyone who has information on the descendants of Burton Hurley (d:1830), and his sister, Elizabeth.
Burton Hurley (d:1830) married Elizabeth Allen, and they had 5 children:
Charles (b: 1826)
Burton Whitefield (b:1827)
Ann E. (b:1829) (m: John Handy)
I have some information about Burton Whitefield, but none on John, Rebecca, Charles, or Ann.
My Gggrandfather Burton Whitefield Hurley (b:1827) married Mary Wilson Obier, and they had 12 children:
3 died as infants
Isaac Jesse (b:1849)
Margaret Elizabeth (b:1851)
Luther Wilbur (1853-1934) (my ggrandfather)
Martha Bell (b:1855)
William Henry (b:1858)
Celia Ann (b:1860)
John Burton (b:1862)
Charles Edward (b:1865)
Mary Catherine (b:1871)
The only ones of the above list that I have any significant information about are Luther Wilbur and Charles Edward.
My Great Grandfather Luther Wilbur Hurley (1853-1934) married Willie Scott, and they had 8 children:
Leon Scott (1876-1958)
Frances Jane (1879-1948)
John Scott (1883-1931) (my Grandfather)
Wilbur Charleton (1885-1963)
Albert Burton (1893-1957)
Ronald Austin (1898-1965)
I have some information on all of the Hurley's of the above generation, but there are still several gaps in my information. As mentioned above, I am interested in contacting anyone who may have information on any of the above listed people, their spouses, children, and spouses ancestors. Thanks in advance.
