In Deborah's message she mentions Prior Green Purser. I think its interesting to note that my great aunt, Nomie Nichols Green married Prior Green of Marion County, AL. Nomie was a granddaughter of Elva/Elvy Purser Ford, daughter of Richard Purser. Elva married Elijah Walker Ford in Henry County, GA, 15 Aug 1844/45. The Richard Purser family and the Elijah Walker Ford family were both in Marion County, AL, by 1850. The 1850 census of Marion County, AL, lists Richard Purser's p.o.b. as North Carolina. Elvy's gravemarker lists her p.o.b. as North Carolina. I've been told that the Greens of Marion County came from North Carolina.
