Doing research for one of the Weatherford, TX Puryears and I'm having a difficult time finding information on Hardiman Puryear's line. (Name listed as Hartsman on marriage record, but other records indicate the name was really Hardiman). Born in VA abt 1794, and married (1825) Mary Trigg b. 1803 Barren, KY.They lived in Arkansas and ultimately ended up in Cooke, TX and are part of the Weatherford Puryears.
Hardiman Puryear b. 1794 John B. Puryear b. 1837 Fred Ernest Puryear b. 1878 Louis Ernest Puryear b. 1898
If anyone has any information tying him to a Virginia family tree I would really appreciate it!All the information I am finding is on Hardeman Royster who is not the same person.
