My grandmother was Amelia Hurst, daughter of Jay Hurst, but she was adopted by her stepfather, Benjamin Walter Ruth, who was Annie Lynch's second husband.
I assume that Jay Hurst had passed away because he disappeared from the census after 1910, but I am not 100% sure that he died around that time. He lived in Wilkesbarre, PA at the time of the 1910 census. It is possible that Annie and Jay divorced, although I really do not think so. He could have been killed in WWI, so his death would be in 1917 or 1918 since this was the period when the U.S was part of the war.
I have never been able to find any information about his family, so I appreciate any help!
