PURNELL Marlboro District, S. C. early 1800's

I descend from Miranda (Purnell) BRIGES. Another posting in this forum ties these children to Rev. Robert PURNELL. The only information that I have on this family is that at least three of the PURNELL children were raised by their PURNELL grandparents. The only children that were recalled by family members were:
Miranda; Hope Herschel (or Hull)- physician and Methodist Minister; and Anna who married James SHIPTRENE. If anyone can add to this, I would appreciate any help.

Miranda, born ca. 1805, married to James BRIDGES of Marlboro District, SC. She died after 1850 probably in Russell County, AL. Her children were:

William b. ca. 1822 SC married Harriet BLALOCK

Robert L. b. ca. 1824-1825, married Emma GOLDEN


Mary Anne b. May 21, 1827, Upson Co., GA, married William Wesley PERDUE

John b. August 26, 1828, married Mary Elizabeth WILLIAMSON or TAYLOR

Emily married Thomas P. GODWIN

Miranda Jr. b. ca. 1834, married William KIMBROUGH

Martha married Tom HAMMOCK or HAMBY

Margaret born ca. 1836
