I am helping a friend start her genealogy adventure.
We are trying to trace her paternal line back and it seems that Pergerson could have at one time been Perkingson or Perkinson.
Joseph Davis Pergerson/Perkingson (1810-1870) (mother Elizabeth [1750- May 1850])
William Pergerson (1845-1925)
Henry Clay Pergerson (1893-1975)
Royal Douglas Pergerson (1923-2001)
Also found this line (not direct) in my tree and we wonder if there is a connection between the two lines.
Harbord/Hubard Perkinson (1765-1848)
Elijah Perkinson (about 1759-????)
John H Purgason (1820-1859)
Joseph Martin Purgason (1853-1922)
John Leonard Purgason (1873-1950)
Joseph Clayton Pergerson (1901-1966)
