      Identified as the son of Harmon Herd, a German immigrant, and Ruth Wildrick by Jennie Arent, a descendant of Robert B. Hurd's younger brother William, in a posting on the Hurd forum on genforum.genealogy.com. In a subsequent personal communication to Robert M. Simon on 19 October 2009, she indicated that the middle initial of "B." stood for Bloom.
      Consistent with age (23 years) in 1880 U.S. Census for Pennsylvania, Luzerne County, page 332A, line 7. State of birth given as Pennsylvania, and record states that his father was born in "Germania" and his mother was born in Pennsylvania. Enumerated as Robert B. Herd, with wife Lucy and daughter Rachel. This record establishes that this Hurd family is unrelated to all others in Delaware and the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
