Mary Do you know where in Mississippi your Descendent came from?
My Pursers came from Magee, Ms. Simpson County where there are still
a lot of Pursers. My line descended from William M. Purser dob abt 1825. His first wife was Nancy Williamson and his second wife was
Mary Ann Ware. His eldest son was my great grandfather, Elias Purser,
Elias's eldest son, my grandfather, John D. Purser who married Ruthie
Mae King from Simpson County. They moved and raised their family
in Meadville, Ms. Franklin County. I descended from John D and Ruthie
Mae's daughter Etta Marie Purser Marshall. I am having a time finding
anything on William M. Purser's parents or siblings. Let me know a
little more about you Purser from Mississippi. Vivian
