My Hurt Legacy

My Hurt Legacy through John James Hurt and Mary Mrkvicka shown at their homestead, seated in chairs. Not sure who the young lady is standing behind them.

 According to research I have found so far, my great grandfather Joseph P. Hurt was born in Bohemia (a part of Austria-Hungary) to John James Hurt (Hurtosci, Hurtoovi, or Hurtosic, not sure of the spelling) and Mary Mrkvicka. Joseph came over with his parents, an Uncle Anton and Eloize Hurt) and John and Anton's nephew (Vaclav Hurt). They boarded the ship Weser and left Bohemia and landed in New York on 14 March 1876. Then they headed Westward towards Nebraska and settled in Posen (now known as Farewell), Nebraska.
