William Barksdale Pernell/Purnell

My gggg grandparents were William Barksdale Pernell and Elizabeth ??? from South Carolina. Being that his middle name was Barksdale, believe that there is a connection there. He would have been born in the mid 1700's, moved to Marion Co., Alabama and died there early 1800's. Not sure about the Pernell spelling as I have found it as variants of Purnell and Parnell. Elizabeth may have been a Morris as she named one of her sons Samuel Morris Purnell. Hope some can help me from the list forum. Thanks.
