I am very interested to know if you have any information about the Purvis family who came from MS through LA. and on to Texas and settled in the Trinity county area. Specifically, an Elizabeth Purvis who married Richard Odom. Elizabeth was married first to James Purvis. He died and she married Richard Odom. In the 1860 Louisiana, Rapides Parish census, she was living with her son, Alexander Purvis and next door to her other son, Joseph and his family. Both sons died in the Civil War and I believe that my gg grandmother was a child of Joseph.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks, Mary Beth
