Christine, any of the PURSERS in GA who claim relationship to Buford PUSSER are descended from three PUSSER brothers from NC. They are the sons of David PURSER and Anna Mullis. The three sons are John PUSSER, Solomon PUSSER, and Pryor/Prior Green PUSSER, a fourth son, Hugh PUSSER, remained in NC. Buford's ancestors from John PUSSER chose to retain the original PUSSER name, while the descendants of Solomon and Pryor Green PUSSER went with the PURSER name. There was no split-up of the families over this choice. I scanned through the lineages of the GA PURSERS, but could not find a Louise PURSER, nor the siblings you mentioned. There was another line of PURSERS in GA, descended from PURSERS from Edgecombe County, NC. These two PURSER lines are perhaps connected waaaay back. Could you furnish more detailed infoirmation on your Grandmother and her brother and sister? In this way, we may be able to help you.
