20.WILLIAM4PARLIER/PARLEE/PURLEE (JOHN3, JEAN2 PERLIER, JEAN1) was born Abt. 1759 in DAVIDSON CONTY/ABBOTTS CREEK, and died Abt. 1778 in DAVIDSON CONTY/ABBOTTS CREEK.He married ELIZABETHBUTTRAM January 28, 1776 in DAVIE COUNTY/ABBOTTS CREEK, daughter of WILLIAM BUTTRAM and MARGARET.She was born Abt. 1759 in DAVIDSON CONTY/ABBOTTS CREEK. Notes for WILLIAM PARLIER/PARLEE/PURLEE: BY: Dennis Moore Lenoir NC Jan. 28 1776 William Perly married Elizabeth Bouttram " They were married by Luthern minister Johann Gottfried Arends at Ebellscriik ( Beck's Luthern Church near Lexington NC .He does not appear on the 1769 - 1773 Tax List of Rowan County, so we know he was under 16 years of age in 1773 and assuming that he was at least 16 years of age when this marriage took place, then I figure that he was born between 1758 and 1760.We will use the date of 1759 as his birth until proof is made available. " 1778 Rowan County Tax List " William Perlee is listed as a pole ( taxable person over the age of 16 , but not owning any land. " October 2 1778 - Rowan County NC Land Entries - #1621 " William Purlee 100 acres on a branch of Rich Fork of Abbotts Creek adjoining Obediah Ledford and Earhart Simmerman, including his own improvement. "The phrase including his own improvement indicates that he had occupied the above property for at least 7 years prior to 1778.The Land Office of North Carolina was closed for many years prior to 1778 so a lot of people simplyhomesteaded a piece of property and when the Land Office reopened in 1778, they rushed to enter their lands legally.If we go back 7 years then we know William was living on the piece of property as early as 1771.He would have been about 12 years of age at this time which indicates that this is the same property that his father John Parleir had occupied along with wife Ann, and sons Isaac and Jacob.John Parlier had died circa 1771 and since Isaac and Jacob were out on their own by 1778, he was left to claim the land.I feel like Ann continued to live there with William after he married Elizabeth. " December 2 1778 - Rowan County NC Land Entries - #2643 ( replaces Land Entry #1621 ) " For and in consideration of the sum of Twenty-Five pounds, assigned over to Jacob Perlee all my right to the within mentioned warrant as witnessed my hand the 21st day of February 1786. " Witness: Henry LewisElizabeth Perlee The date entered was 12/2/1778 but the issue date was not until May 11, 1789.William evidently died between October 2 1778 ( when he entered the land orifinally ) and December 2 1778 ( when it comes into the possession of Jacob Perlee ).The delay in offically entering the transaction was because they had to wait until the estate was settled.The above assignment was just a hand written note on the back of the original land entry of the property to William Perlee. October 20 1789 " Let administration on the Estate of William Purleer deceased, issue to Isaac Purleer, who qualified and gave bond with William Baltrm Security in 150 Pounds. February 4 1790 " Account of sales of estate of William Purleer filed.
