    • During the Civil War, Hursts from Pulaski naturally fought for the Confederacy. Allen and Calvin were in the 45th Virginia Infantry. The situation was different in Claiborne County in a pro-Union area of East Tennessee. But several of Absalom's descendants there were on the Southern side. After the war was over \endash  perhaps no longer feeling welcome in that area \endash  some of them moved back to Pulaski. The largest group of these was Samuel Hurst (1820-1895) and Virginia Breeding (1823-1909), both originally from Pulaski, and most of their children. For some reason they did not move back to Hiwassee, but settled in Newbern on the other side of the New River. Samuel was the eldest son of "Squire" John Hurst, another son of John Hurst of Pulaski, whose father was Absalom. The "Newbern Hurst" sons who moved with their parents were Garrett, Estell, Jackson, Milton and Samuel. Only the youngest son, Albert Monroe, was born in Pulaski. In 1870, Garrett Hurst, after marrying a Civil War widow, Nicotia Miranda Quesenberry Clark, moved his family to Cooke County, Texas, where they prospered. From the remainder of the sons who stayed in Pulaski, there were at least 40 children. Samuel and Virginia had two daughters, but they died young before the move to Pulaski. The "Newbern Hursts" are known for their regular reunions in Newbern or Dublin; the latest one in 2005 had about 100 attendees.
