HURST of NW Ohio

Query by smileskiles

Delia Cecelia Hurst, b. 1879 Ohio, is my great-great grandmother. She is the daughter of Irish immigrants John J Hurst and Mary Printy. She would later on marry John Brandon. Their children include Thomas, Mary Patricia, Maury, Zita, and Mathew (my great grandfather). Any information you may have on Delia or either of her parents would be appreciated!

Delia is my grandmother. She and John's children include John Thomas Brandon, born August 1899, Chicago, IL, died August 18, 1900, Chicago, IL; Thomas Anthony Brandon, born July 22, 1902, Chicago, IL, died January 9, 1955, Fort Wayne, IN; Matthew J. Brandon, born October 20, 1904, Chicago, IL, died May 16, 1979, Bradenton, FL; Mary Patricia Brandon, born March 19, 1906, Toledo, Ohio, died August 17, 1988, Waterville, Ohio; and Zita Catherine Brandon, born May 28, 1907, Toledo, Ohio, died March 12, 1990, Garfield Heights, Ohio.

The 1920 U.S. Census appears to list a child by the name of Maury J. (age 13), but actually that is Mary Patricia (age 13).

Delia's parents are John J. Hurst, born December 1839, County Mayo, Ireland, died January 12, 1906, Toledo, Ohio; and Mary Printy, born August 15, 1844, County Mayo, Ireland, died December 13, 1919, Toledo, Ohio.

Delia's paternal grandparents are James Hurst, born (date unknown) in County Mayo, Ireland, died in 1873, Curry Kirwa, County Mayo, Ireland, and Catherine Conley, Born (date unknown) in Ireland, died about 1907, County Mayo, Ireland. (NOTE: Grandmother's name is listed as Catherine Conley on son John's death certificate, and as Mary Connolly on daughter Bridget's death certificate. Which is it? Eleanor Rooney has Kitty Conley as the name in her Hurst Family Tree-1 file. I have set it as Catherine Conley until determined otherwise.)

As far as I can determine, Delia's Maternal grandparents are Matthew Printy and Mary Murphy, both of whom were born in Ireland. I have no further information on them.

Besides Delia Cecelia (1873-1945), John and Mary had John J., Jr. (1863-1931), Mary Ellen (1868-1941), Catherine (1871-1943), Henrietta (1876-1934), Michael Edward (1881-1882), and Gertrude M. (1886-1955).
