I'm looking for any info I can find on William H. H. Purvis.
1. Who are his parents? I believe it to be James Purvis & Sarah but in some way Johnson J. Purvis listed in the 1831-32 Simpson County Tax List fits in this family. Was his name Johnson James Purvis or James Johnson Purvis? Are James, James Johnson, Johnson James Purvis a variant of the SAME person.
2. Exact DEATH DATE for William H. H. Purvis. I know he died in Polk County between 1 Mar 1855 and January 28, 1856.
William H. H. Purvis, b. abt 1813 in Chesterfield, South Carolina died between 1 Mar 1855 and January 28, 1856
2 March 1855 – William H. H Purvis signed a Land Deed transferring all his property, including slaves, to his wife Jemima Magee. I think this signified that fact that he knew he was dying. Deed Book E, page 558-559
28 January 1856 County Court met and acted on petition of William J. Purvis for Guardianship of William H. H. Purvis minor Children – P. J. S. Purvis, G. E. Purvis and J. A. Purvis (page 231)
Any help greatly appreciated.
