John Pryor’s death certificate states that he was born in Greene County, Missouri on 13 November 1851.On the 1850 census, his parents, Leroy and Elizabeth (Mayberry) Pryor are living in Jackson County, Tennessee.
Does anyone know if the Pryor family living in Greene County MO has a relationship to Leroy and Elizabeth Pryor?Has anyone done any research on William and Sarah Pryor?Any clues would be appreciated.
I am searching for the parents of Leroy Pryor and thinking William and Sarah might be candidates.On census records though, Leroy Pryor lists both parents as having been born in North Carolina.
