Documentation:
James C. Hurley was a tanner and shoe maker by trade and
owned a tannery. It was in operation when the Civil War began. It was
confiscated by the Union troops in 1864, the 18th Missouri, Colonel
Miller was in command. According to family members Jim Hurley did
receive a written document from Col. Miller that the family would be
reimbursed for the use of this tannery. However, when the troops were
finished with it or the war was over, the tannery was destroyed. Union
troops burned it along with the document that assured the Hurley family
of repayment for their losses. There were also two bay horses taken from
the Hurley family during the war by troops with the 3rd Michigan Calvary
Unit. The family in later years, after the war, ran a cotton gin.
