This might help you some in your search. Jesse Purkey b 1842 d 1914 Hancock Co. Tn. One of his daughters, Martha A. Purkey married Jim Green. She married Rev. Grant Lawson after Jim was killed by his uncle Hamp Greene in Luther, Tn. at Livesay's Store. I think this was what started the Greene-Jones War in that county. Several Purkey's married Greene's in that county. I don't have a Purkey male marrying a Mary Greene.
