Susan, My gggrandfather was Mike Puryear, a grandson of Revolutionary War Soldier Jesse Puryear from Virginia that came to Green Co. Kentucky circa. 1780. Jesse Puryear had a son Jesse Puryear JR who married Hannah Shively and they had 4 son's: James, William, Mike and Jacob. Both James and William went to McLean County from Larue County sometime around 1870 after there father Jesse Puryear JR passed away. Here is what I have on them:
James Puryear, b.12 Apr 1826 Green Co. KY, d.21 Mar 1897 McLean Co. KY. married twice Letha Ann Harding, Eliza Johnson
William Puryear, b.5 Sep 1830 Green Co. KY, d.29 Nov 1904 McLean Co. KY married Mary E. Pruitt/Thompson
I also have all the information on James and William's children if that would help.
