  1. Hi! I’ve been searching your blog for Garrard County as your latest post was about the county and I found this. My ancestor’s names were Abel Hurt and Sarah Wray (3rd great grandparents). The handwriting is so hard to read. I have seen Wray spelled Ray and Rhea. My grandma was a Hurt and she spent a lot of time in the Garrard County Courthouse researching the Hurts back in the sixties. Thank you for posting this!
