Hi Dale,
Sure is good to see someone working on this line. Although I have been researching for years I have not done much work on my HURTT line until recently. I have gathered quite a bit of information, don't know how much will help you because I have not done much on the Charles you listed.
My Line goes through s/o Charles. Charles b. 08 May 1840 Ohio, wife Mary Margaret HULL b 04 January 1843 Ohio.
Charles and Mary's son John Wesley HURTT b 1863 Tuscole, Douglas Co. IL., is the next in my line. His daughter Nina Marie HURTT was my grandmother.

If you have any information I would love to exchange info with you.

I just found the following in case it will help you. I know the name is listed as HUNT but it is the right Charles HURTT.

Charles 20 is my line.

1860 Federal Census, Douglas County, IL, House #1055, T 14, R 7, E, Hermitage
Post Office.

HUNT, Charles 65 M farmer p.p.400 b. Del
Margaret 55 F b. Del
Daniel 31 M b. OH.
Peter 23 M b. Oh
Charles 20 M b OH
Mellissa 16 F b. Oh

Happy Hunting

Cathy, It is very exciting to finally hear from another descendant of Charles Hurtt. This line has frustrated me for 8 years. This is my wifes maternal line. The info I have is from her aunt, who is the only other person I ever found that had worked on this line, until now. My wife descends through John Wesleys younger brother, Charles Henry Hurtt. We have info on some of these descendants, but not on any of the other lines of descent from Charles. The info I had on Charles, had him born in Washington County, Ohio! No wonder I couldn't find him. Also, I had his wife's name as Mary Margaret Ward, same birthdate, daughter of Henry Ward. Another deadend. I have the wife of John Wesley Hurtt as Nellie VanMeter. Is that what you have? No other info on her or her family though. I would be happy to exchange info with you, however, I starting to doubt the accuracy of mine. My email is: I'll look forward to hearing from you. Dale

This is very exciting to me also.
I have come across so many dead ends on this line and every time I find one they seem to be getting there information from the family search information which is full of incorrect data. At least according to the documents I have found.
John Wesley's first wife was Ina VanMeter. I have a picture of her if you would like a copy it is a ten type. Ina and John had one child, Charles who was half brother to my grandmother Nina Marie. I can remember uncle Charley from when I was a child. I have information on his birth and death also.
John W married a second time to my grandmothers mother, her name was Martha Emaline Virden they were married in Gillespie, Macoupin Co., IL.
I have no proof of the birthplace of Charles f/o Charles but the census information I listed my be the clue that we have both been looking for.
As far as the name HULL for the wife of Charles, that is the information my grandmother always told me, and what she had written in the family Bible. I know it goes against everything else I have seen BUT, no one else seems to have any proof that the maiden name was WARD. If someone does I would love to have it! When I ask people they say, "Oh I got it from so and so" then when I contact so and so they say they got it from family search or from a book that was not documented. So, I think my information is as good as any until someone can prove it one way or another. I for one would love to find the true name.
Until the other day I had not been able to find the family on the 1860 census, I decided to try a new spelling I had not tried, and there they were. I looked in Douglas Co. IL. because that is where John W HURTT was born in 1863 if the census information is correct then we should be able to find the marriage in Douglas Co. It would stand to reason that if they were there in 1860 when Charles shows up still living with his parents and his son was born in 1863 in the same county then his parents were more than likely married in Douglas county.
I have a picture of the HURTT family that I know you will be interested in, also a picture of the grave stone of Charles and Mary M. HURTT.
I'll send more information to your e-mail address.
Have you found the family on the 1850 census? I have not been able to locate them. I do have them on 1900 and 1920
Mine is

Have a great night
Looking forward to hearing from you
