I have Gabriel Purswell b. 18 Jun 1809 Barnwell Co., SC; died 8 Apr 1898 Dale Co., AL. Son of Henry Purswell and Rachel Bright.
Married 1. Elizabeth Stivender born 1812 South Carolina
Married 2. Mary Louisa Bateman 14 Jan 1864 Barbour Co., AL

Children of Gabriel and Elizabeth:
William Sanford 24 Mar 1830-12 Apr 1912; buried County Line Cemetery, San Jacinto Co., TX. Tombstone reads: C6. G. 29th ALA Rgt-C.S.A.
married Elizabeth Condrey; Elizabeth Saucier Simpson (?)

Francis Jane Purswell 24 Apr 1832-21 Jul 1917
married William Lewis Wise

John F. Purswell ca 1834-Jan 1839

Henry Duncan 1836-?

Rachel Malissa Purswell
married Stephen W. Etheridge; Clayton Reynolds

Mary Elizabeth 1852-?
married John Patterson

William Sanford was father of Nancy Catherine, born 2 Feb 1861; mother was Leviney Elizabeth Condrey.
This info is mostly from the internet, but my great-uncle has confirmed it (his work is strictly hard copy). His grandmother was Nancy Catherine. I will be going to see him when school is out this year, and will hopefully be able to get a copy of what he's got. It it shows proof one way or the other, I'll be happy to send you a copy.

Also, you list Elizabeth Stivender Wise. I've not taken note of any Wises in my research. Who did she marry before Gabriel?
