I go by Gerry and am just getting started in the genology of the Purgason name. According to what I've learned so far, my paternal great grandfather was Thomas Wesley Purgason who married Martha Ann Baker. He died in 1911 and she predeceased him in 1901. It looks like we're part of the same family.

I believe I'm descended from Thomas's son, George who was born 5/15/1865 and died 2/4/1940. He married Emma Crowder and they gave birth to Cornelious Howard Purgason (died 3/14/1969 in Mayodan, NC)who sired my father, Alphonse Lee Purgason who died 3/24/1982 in Greensboro. His mother was Ida Mae Fulton who died in 1946 in Mayodan.

I really appreciate the work you and your family have done back before Thomas. I'll be glad to share any new information if I'm lucky enough to find it.

Thanks again,

Gerry Purgason
