William Puryear (a1760 - 1796) and Rebecca Carlton (1767-1827) moved with their young family from Mecklenburg County, Virginia to Oglethorpe or Clarke County, Georgia. One of their sons was named Peter, born about 1794. Peter married Jemima Holmes 11/30/1815 in Athens and this couple had four children before Peter's death in 1827. One of the children was named William.
Was this the William who married Mary Ann Miller and had several children who are in the 1880 census of Milam County, Texas??
