William Elzy Puryear was born about 1861 in Kentucky and died 2/5/1934 in McLean County, Kentucky (Kentucky Death Record spells name Pryear). He married Clara Higgs who was born about 1882 in Kentucky and died 7/20/1949 in Daviess County, Kentucky (Kentucky Death Record shows residence to be in McLean County and spells name Puryear).
I show the following children were born to this union: Earl Puyear(10/2/1902-5/8/1996), Ethel Puryear (6/2/1906), Bessie Puryear (2/6/1912), John H. Puryear (about 1913, may have been a twin to Bessie), and William Puryear (3/18/1913-2/26/1980). I do not have a wife for Earl nor do I have your mother's name.
William Elzy Puryear was a son of James (4/12/1826-3/21/1897) and Elizabeth Mary Johnson Puryear (2/16/1833-1/28/1887). James and Elizabeth are buried in Chapman Cemetery, McLean County, Kentucky.
I have in my files 5300+ people born with the name Puryear, 300+ with the Puyear spelling, and 100+ who spell the name Preer, ect. We all come from the Puryears who came to Virginia beginning in the early 1600s.
