Re: Henry, James and Thomas Averet Mecklenburg Co., VA
My candidates for the Puryear in your deed are:
comments powered by
John Puryear, Sr. (1715 - 1785)
His sons: John Jr. (1745 - before 3/1777)
Seymour (about 1750 - before 4/14/1788)
Samuel Puryear (about 1720 - 1810)
His sons: Thomas (about 1750 - before 7/11/1802)
Samuel Jr. (about 1752 - before 7/11/1802)
William Puryear (about 1720 - before 2/13/1809)
John Puryear, Sr. seems to be the most likely as he owned large tracts of land in Mecklenburg County at that time.
If you can further identify the land I might be able to give additional help. on Chickahominy Swamp, on the east side of Butcher's Creek, ect.
