JOHN G. HURST was the son of MATHIAS M. HORST (HURST) & ANNIE GOOD.
MATHIAS M. HORST was born Jan. 18, 1854 and he died July 21, 1939, Terre Hill, Lan. Co., Pa.

The below listed obituary was taken from findagrave.com.
HURST.-On the 25th day of May in Terra Hill, Lancaster Co., Pa., John Hurst died of the effects of a premature explosion of dynamite in a limestone quarry, aged 20 Y., 11 M., 21 D. He was married to Emma Weaver about five months ago. He lived about three and a half hours after the explosion, during which time he called his friends to his bedside and asked them to pray for him, as he had lived without the Savior up to that time. The prayer of a righteous man availeth much. We hope that God has forgiven him, though we commit him in God's hand. The remains were laid to their last resting place in the Bowmansville Mennonite cemetery. The deceased leaves a young widow, his parents, one brother and nine sisters. Four brothers preceded him to the spirit world. About 1,200 relatives, friends and neighbors gathered at the Bowmansville Mennonite M. H. to pay the last tribute of respect to the departed one
EMMA WEAVER HURST, JOHN'S widow, did not marry again until about 1929. She is married to and living with ELI ZIMMERMAN MARTIN, in the 1930 CAERNARVON, LANCASTER CO., PA. census records along with ELI'S children from his marriage to LAURA L. STAUFFER. LAURA died in 1928 and left ELI with at least 6 children still living at home.
I do not believe that ELI & EMMA WEAVER MARTIN had any children together.
I have no additional information on these families.
