I have a letter from a Dryhurst relative that talks about the Dryhurst-Hall family in Wallingford,Connecticut. As stated, there were two sisters, Miss Eleanore Dryhurst (who died in 1928) and Mrs. Hall--and a brother, Dr. Dryhurst, who practiced in Hartford. According to the letter, their gandfather imigrated to the US about 1850 or maybe earlier. They were also cousins of the Budd family, who included a Major Budd who served on General Pershing's staff in the US Army, WW I. Major Budd's mother's maiden name was Dryhurst. According to the information I have, Emma Dryhurst-Hall's grandfather and my great great grandfather may have been brothers.
