ROBERT B. HURT, 1821-1881:
Robert B. Hurt was born in Halifax county, Va., in the year 1821, and died of cancer of the face , near the city of Jackson, Tenn., Aug. 31, 1881. He was married, June 1, 1843, to Susan A. Deberry, a noble Christian woman, who still lives. In 1852 he buried a lovely child. This bereavement, together with his personal illness which soon followed, was sanctified by God’s grace to his religious awakening, and calmly reviewing his condition and his relations to his Maker, he resolved to consecrate himself to God. Shortly thereafter, with an unwavering purpose, he united with the M. E. Church, South, in the city of Jackson, where he lived henceforth an exemplary life, honored, respected, and beloved by his brethren and all good citizens. Brother Hurt was no ordinary man. Intellectually, he was far above the average, having a mind with a strong judicial cast, keen, discriminating, incisive, capable of the highest effort. Had he turned his attention to the legal profession, he might have attained to eminence, and rivaled the ablest jurists of the State. As it was, his advice was often sought on legal questions, and was highly prized on any subject. He was twice elected a member of the State Legislature, and filled several other public offices, in all of which he exhibited great ability, and a fidelity which secured the praise of those who had entrusted him with the responsibilities of office. In every department of life he was marked for leadership, and his neighbors and friends were not slow to recognize it. On all public occasions, and in all public enterprises, he was called to the front, and his counsels usually prevailed. Socially he was distinguished for many excellences. He was a considerable man. Time, place, circumstances, and all the proprieties of an occasion were taken in by his orderly mind, and so appropriated by his loving heart, that no idle speech or incongruous reference was ever made by him, calculated to wound the tenderest sensibilities, or to disturb the equanimity of the most uncomposed. Possessing a fine physique, and a knightly bearing, but with a gentleness of manner approaching to womanly grace, he was the center of attraction in every social circle, and drew men to him who became lasting in their friendship. In dispensing the hospitalities of his own well-ordered home, in which with such a soul he could but delight, he was always the courtly gentleman, discharging the duties of host with an ease and grace, with which dignity and love were so beautifully blended, that he became a positive benediction to his guests. In his family, as husband and father, he was gentle, without weakness; strong, without severity; firm, without obstinacy; loving, tender, wise, guiding and controlling his household with discretion. In his religious life he was not demonstrative, and was never what might be technically called a worker in the Church, although he worked much in his own quiet way, and did more in composing difficulties and uniting friends that had been separated, than almost any other. He was emphatically a peace-maker. Being so much in public life, and having so much to do with the men of the world and its affairs, the fear that his motives might be impugned, had much more influence than he was probably aware of, in restraining the natural order of his temperament, and checking the exhibition of that religious emotion which he often felt in his heart. Differently surrounded, he would doubtless have been enthusiastic in his religious life. As it was, he was quiet, unobtrusive, devout, and faithful, loving God and his fellow-man. His affliction was long and unusually painful. For seven years he was a sufferer—five years an intense sufferer—suffering than I thought it possible for man to endure; but in it all he murmured not. He often said, "I cannot understand it, but it is all right." In his last years he grew daily more patient and resigned, more prayerful and heavenly minded. His affliction thus brought him nearer to God, even face to face, where he communed with him out of his soul from day to day. For a long time no minister, or layman accustomed to pray in public, was allowed to leave his house without praying with him, and those who have heard his hearty Amens felt assured that in the sincerity of his soul he was talking with God, and felt his acceptance with him. Toward the close of his pilgrimage, he said to his wife, "When I am gone, you can say I am at rest." Yes, at rest forever!
