Good Morning to you Kent from the great Pacific Northwest.
Thank you for the reply.No, I do not have much information to add on the Purser family other than the fact that my paternal grandfather Gaines B. Slaton was married to Mary P. Purser.Never follow genealogy much; but find the work that you do in the area of family genealogy to be fascinating.
I have an older sister, named Bernice Fay and a younger brother named William Joseph.My Mother, Florence (Sally) L. (Worland) Slaton is still with us.My father Charles M. Slaton passed about 3 or 4 years ago.
All of my father’s full brothers and sisters have also passed – I believe.Jim Hurley, a half-brother of my father, posts here from time to time.There may be other half-brothers and half-sisters of my father around from either Gaines Slaton or Mary Purser, since both jumped over the broom a couple of times.
Living in Washington state, I am too far away from the areas of residence of the Pursers, in the Southeast United States, to scour the courthouse records and grave yards to be of much value to genealogical research.However, I could ask Mother about specific things of which she may have knowledge.
Take care Kent and again thank you for the work that you invest here.My best to you and your family.
