WILLIAM HURST, who for more than half a century has occupied and owned the same farm in Ross Township, Edgar County, was born in Brown County, Ohio, Sept. 10, 1829, the son of Benedict and Elizabeth Hurst, natives of Kentucky. Mr. Hurst came to Edgar County in 1847, and to Ross Township in 1851, when he settled on the farm which he has since, by subsequent additions, increased to 590 acres, upon which he has been engaged in general farming and stock raising. In political sentiment he is a Republican, but has never sought nor been willing to accept official recognition.
