I am so excited--I'm new at this & thought I'd check out the Purviance family. I am a descedent of Alexander Jasper Purviance, son of Alex C. Purviance & Jane Coleman Purviance. Alex married Susan Mariah Jones (I have their picture hanging in my home--she was supposedly a friend of Abraham Lincoln's mother). Their fifth child, Effie Jane was my great grandmother, her son, Joseph Jasper Fotlz, my grandfather. Our branch of the Purviances still has reunions each summer, although I have not attended in many years. I have info on the children of Alexander Jasper Purviance & Susan Mariah Jones Purviance (I'm not sure if my form is correct):
Alexander Jasper Purviance (b. Aug. 3, 1840 near Springfield, IL) m. Susan Mariah Jones Purviance (daughter of Samuel & Pheoba Jones), b. Sept. 2, 1837, at Circleville, OH.
Thomas Purviance died in infancy. Tell Purviance died at age 25 (he was helping cut down a tree and in some kind of accident the tree fell on him & he died several days later. From my records, it shows the family moved to Kansas (near Howard) in 1879. Later they moved to the Indian Territory of what is now Oklahoma.
Hope to hear from you & that you forgive my lack of formal/correct presentation of geneology. I'm just so excited to find a match!!
