I am looking for information on Ralph Purkeypile's second wife, Rebecca. On October 21, 1847 Ralph Purkyhill married Rebecca H. Lyles in Knox Co, TN. Ralph had been married before. I believe Rebecca is the daughter of my gg-grandfather, James Liles of Roane/Knox Co.

Some information I have found: Ralph Purkepile married Nancy Pierce December 1, 1831 in Greene County, TN.

Census: 1850 Roane Co: Purlley, Ralph 49 T, Rebecca 20, Amanda J. 15, Eliza E. 12, Nancy M. 10, Lucinda 8, William 6, James B 1 (Ro-799)
