Her name may have been Esther Green. (From CDS)spouse: Markwell, Landon (? - 1818)
Agatha is named as a daughter (Aggy Gardner) in the Henry Hurst will dated 5 Jan 1819 (Will Book C, page 24, Fleming County, Kentucky). Aggey and Anthony Gardner were early (1820-1832) landowners in Rush County, Indiana (Deed Book B, page 268). Have not yet proved they lived there. It is almost certain that Anthony was a son of Joniah Gardiner, Sr. and born in Pennsylvania or New Jersey. See notes on Aggey's brother James.spouse: Gardner, Anthony
Another date of 1789 for birth year. W-mentioned by: 1819, Fleming Co. KY134
The Davis, Markwell, Hickerson and Hurst families all came from Virginia to Poplar Plains, Flemming Co., KY. Francis Davis married Evaline Markwell. their children were Jemina Davis (Mrs. Melvin Rawlins), Narcissa Davis (married three times), Sarah Davis (Mrs. John W. Day), Charles Davis, Elias Davis and Mary Ellen Davis (Mrs Charles Hurst).spouse: Davis, Mary Ellen (1837 - 1875)
Fielding Hurst married Elizabeth Hickerson. We recall the names of four children, Monroe, William, Nelson, and Charles Hickerson Hurst.
Charles Hickerson Hurst and Mary Ellen Davis were both born in Flemming Co. KY., and lived practically all their lives there. They had a family of ten children and Mr. Hurst had a son by a second marriage. Charles H. Hurst, wife and baby son Francis went with others from Fleming Co. to Illinois and he purchased land in McLean County, recorded March 28, 1855. This land later incorporated into the city of Bloomington, IL, which, at that time was a very small town. The climate did not agree with Mrs. Hurst, so about two years later they returned to KY. Evaline Hurst (Adams) recalls seeing a sign "Hurst Street" while driving through Bloomingdale since it became a city.
Christopher is our contact man among Richard and Alice's off-spring. Born at Long Combe, Oxford County, in 1539 he died in Leckhampstead December 1, 1613. His wife was Joane, last name probably Benchley or Bentley. The wives names are never considered important enough to be preserved and where they accidentally show up that problem with penmanship is always with us.spouse: Bencley, Joan
Christopher, in his will, desired to be buried in the church yard cemetery at Leckhampstead and probably this was done. Joane was buried there October 5, 1600 . We here offer Christopher's will. Joann had now been dead thirteen years, so does not appear in the will.

His name shows up in only the 1830 Census before his death. In Fielding's will he left his entire estate to Elizabeth with the proviso that she must forfeit 2/3 of the estate to her nine children if she ever remarried. She didn't. Elizabeth appears in the 1850 Fleming County, Kentucky Census, age 55, living with children Maria age 22, Charles age 19, and Monroe age 17. Mt.

Walker Township is bounded on the north by Posey, on the east by Rushville, on the south by Orange Township, on the mest by Shelbv Countg. Mud Creeli, which is most appropriately named passes through it from the northeast to the southwest. The land is too level to be properly drained by Mud Creek and its tributaries without the aid of ditches, but these necessary outlets for surplus water having been generally made, the swamps and low lands have been dried and converted into fertile fields, and a great number of fine farms well improved and remunerative: are now to be seen in this township. On account of this superabundance of surface-water, Walker was settled later than many of the other townships. There were but very few settlers prior to 1824, when a large number of Kentuckians, mostly from _________(obviously Fleming) County, bought land and commenced improving it. John Goddard and his son Joseph, and James Davis, came in the spring of that Fear, and, in the fall, the following persons came and settled in the same neighborhood with the first named: Landy Gardner, Landy Hurst, William Bugess, Daniel Jones, Oliver Norman, Reuben Helfin, David Peters, Fielding Hurst, Joshua Hilfin, James Rogers and Collins Heflin, all from Kentucky, and Frederick and Jacob Mull (1826), Wright Donally, Isaac Baltses and _____ Warfield, from Ohio. In 1830, Samuel Wilson and Isaac Hilligoss, from Kentucky, joined this settlement. Edward Inlow came in 1897. The towns of Homer and Manilla are on the line of the Cambridge City Branch of the J. M. + I. Railroad. Manilla is a point of considerable importance for shipping produce.

Izorah's name may have been Izorale. There is a birth date of Jan. 4, 1857, Rowan County, KY, d. March 3, 1901.spouse: Kenney, Victor Marrue (1851 - 1925)
Izorah Hurst Kenney moved with her family to Cass Co., MO. in 1895. There is some question as to where she was born.
Izorah had a birthmark in one eye. The story goes that it was caused by a man on the train on their return trip to KY, watching Mrs. Hurst very closely. this man had something wrong with his eye.
Evaline Hurst (Adams) recalls that she once asked her mother where she got her sister's name, Izorah. She said that her mother said she was named in honor of the nurse who cared for her when her sister was born, in the "west." (Bloomington, IL)
Edward Kenney says his mother was born in Flemming Co, KY. and gives his reasons as follows: He recollects that the move to Illinois was always spoken of as about two years duration. The record of McLean, IL shows that purchase of land by Charles H. Hurst was recorded on March 28, 1855, Edward assumed that they would have arrived there prior to recording the deed.
Izorah Hurst was born June 4, 1857. This was more than two years after the recording of the deed and they would probably not have traveled immediately after the child's birth. Charles Hurst was a farmer and if he had not returned until some time after June 4, would have lost out one season in farming.
Another incident of which Edward Kenney's grandfather, Charles H. Hurst told him is that his wife and the baby, Izorah, had to be rolled up in their bedding and taken out in a boat to higher ground on account of the creek near which they lived getting out of banks and spreading over the bottom land. this was when Izorah was just a few days old. this incident happened in Flemming Co., KY.
