You are so good at this. I don't know what is important or not so I
will just spill what I do have. I dont want to be a bother but this
is getting so frusterating. Thanks in advance for anything you can
I KNOW that Lawrence Hurt married Nina On December 25th 1922. I
know that Nina was born in 1900. I know that Nina died in late
1986. I know that Nina had sisters Ella, Ethel and a brother John.
There was another sister but she was the "black sheep" and Nina would
never talk about her except to refer to her as the wild one so we
don't know a name. I know that Nina and Lawrence produced three
children Eleanore Jane, George and Bud. I don't think "Bud" was a
given name, I think that was/is a nickname. George might even be a
middle name as it seems a lot of the family went by their middle
names. Elenore went by Jane. Not sure if any of the extra info
helps or not.
Ok, I found on Family Search that:
Lawrence J. Hurt born on May 28th 1899 in Grand Rapids Michigan to
Stephen Hurt (from Germany) & Frances "Schneider" Hurt (from
Germany) Married Nina P. Russell December 25th 1922 in Grand Rapids,
MI. It is listed that the mother of the bride is "Alma Page" and
father of bride is "John Russell"
A search of Michigan Marriages gives me:
John J. Russel (age 24) Married Alma A. Page (age 19) 2/28/1891.
That they resided in sugar island were both born in Canada. John J.
Russel's father is Jacob Russel and the mother listed is Mary
Anyaug. Alma A. Page's father is listed at John S. Page.
This is as far as I can get. I can't find anything else about the
mother of Alma Page at all. In all documents I can find a mother
is just left out. I am trying to find Alma's information and also
Alma's mothers info.
Oh and I did find one Alma page (on ancestry.com) with household
members being John J Russell, Alma Russell with a Melvin, clara,
Barbara Dana and Nina P. Russell. I find it kind of odd that there
is another John Russell married to an Alma Russell with a daughter
Nina P. Russell but I know for a fact that the other people listed in
that census report are not Nina's sisters or brothers???
Any help would be great.
