Thanks Kent! It appears that you are light years ahead on the Purser family tree. First the Purser name is from my mothers side of family. Her mother (my grandmother) maiden name was Luelia Purser. I was able to confirm today that my granmothers father name was David P Purser. Davids wife name was Mary Purser. Theses pursers are from Bleckley county or from the sorrounding area. I was trying to identify who might be David father or granfather to make a connection to the family tree. I was able to get the following information today from the census bureau.
David P. Purser head of house 62 yrs old
Mary Purser wife 58 yrs old
Martha E. Purser daughter 13 yrs old
Louelie Dix daughter 16 yrs old Louelie is my grandmother
Cleveland W. Dix son-in-law 28 yrs old He is my grandfather

1930 Bleckley County Census
Willis C. Dix head of house 38 yrs old
Luelia Dix wife 25 yrs old
Dixie M. Dix daughter 8 yrs old This Person did not exist
Martha E. Dix daughter 5 yrs old MY MOTHER
Dorthie Dix daughter 3 yrs old

Thanks again for your help.
