I am searching for the family of J.A.J. Purser, born January 13, 1829 and died August 10, 1963. He married Mary Elizabeth McGuire about 1855 in Mississippi. They had 4 children, the first two were born in Mississippi, the 4th one was born in Arkansas (1861). The family moved to Bowie County Texas before 1875. J.A.J. Purser is said to have died on his way home from the Civil War somewhere near Monroe, Louisiana.
