I am looking for information on my Greatgrandmother
Cherity Elizabeth Mullis. She married a Richard Purser March 17, 1872 in Pulaski County, Georgia. She had a daughter Eadie Lucintha Purser in January 28, 1875- Eadie married Seaborn Sumner of Irwin county, Georgia in 1890.
Richard and Cherity were divorced in about 1877 and she later married a Joel(Hamp) Porter in Georgia. They had several children one of which is a Joel Porter who was born around 1907-8 . I have an indenture where the minor children of Cheerity and Joel Porter are mentioned as well as Eadie Sumner.

I would appreicate any help you might have . Please contact me at
