I wonder if this is the same Robert B. Hurt? https://focus.nps.gov/GetAsset?assetID=7488ad19-3a5e-4296-ae96-b0ecb2e65706 (from p. 4 on this website) "The Hurts continued the farming operation through the next forty years. Considered one of the wealthier persons in the county, Hurt did not escape the destruction caused by the Civil War. His land was occupied by Federal troops from 1862-1865, and after the war, Hurt reported losses to the Board of Claims in excess of $40,000."
