  • Notes 
    • John Wurm and Katherine Hoffmeyer were married at his parent's house, on the south side of Purdy Road, Bingham Township, Huron County, Michigan.

      Like his father, John Wurm was a farmer. In the 1890's he built the large farmhouse that currently sits abandoned on the Wurm farm, on the south side of Purdy Road 1/4 east of M-19.

      From his Obituary in the Port Huron Times Herald: "John Wurm was of sturdy German descent, and his sterling character and strict integrity were stamped upon his every transaction with his fellow men. He will be sadly missed not only by the splendid family which he has raised and trained to a useful manhood and womanhood, but by the communities where he has been widely known and generally respected."
