In Reply to: William S. Purgason-Rockingham NC by Virginia of 71

My great great grandfather was Thomas Wesley Purgason, he was born 1824 in Halifax VA and then moved to Rockingham Co NC where he lived and died. He had a number of brothers and sisters but I haven't found all their names yet. His father was Elijah Perkinson and mother was Elizabeth Denton from Virginia. From what we have found out, the name was originally Perkinson and changed in the 1800s to Purgason. Although some branches of the family retained the name Perkinson. Hope this helps.
