Can anyone shed any light on this? On the 1850 Tippah Co, MS census with the family of Thomas Newton are listed Mary Purnell 17, John Purnell-21, and James Purnell-14, all born in Alabama. I am guessing they are orphans or that John and Mary might be married and James is his brother. I saw where one of Rev. Robert Purnell's daughters, Dorcas, married a Rev. Cornelius Newton. Could these be any of her brother's children? Any help on the children of John, James Jenkins, Hope Hull, Robert and Henson would be appreciated. There was a Rev. Henson Purnell in Tippah Co. at this time.
