I really don't have much info on the family connection. Word handed down thru the family was that 4 brothers came to Mississippi from Georgia. My gg grandfather, William M. settled at Magee in Simpson County. Another went on to Copiah County. Another went to the Lucedale area and fourth brother got into some trouble over a woman and went to Tennessee. It seems no one of our generation knows the names of these other 3 brothers. As far back as we can trace has been William M. Purser, born in Georgia, 1825. He died in 1900. I have the Family Tree of all his decendants.
If you know the name of his brother or any connections I would appreciate the information. I will gladly share what I have if it will help you.
The Franklin County Purser's are decendants of John Purser who is a brother to my grandfather Hiram Purser. Both deceased over 40 years.
Good Luck, and let me know if you find anything or need any particular info that I have.
