In August 2010, I simply referenced family trees. Should have researched a little. 1860 GA-Walker-East Armuchee-Image 6 for Wm M Puryear(51) head-of-household. 1870 GA-Walker Subdivision 145-Image 64 for Mary "Puryer"(52) head-of-household. There is a Frances M. Puryear on 1867 California Voter Registration Rolls but that's not him! He was too young to vote at age 16. By 1880 Frances found in Texas. There's evidence younger brother George W. was also, briefly, in Texas. George maried "Nealie" aka Cornelia V. Frye, 5 Dec 1897, in Wheeler County, TX. They're found next in Oklahoma and George eventually returned to Georgia.
