Would like to find information on Jane Purviance's ancestors. she was b 24 Dec 1793 d 18 Aug 1867, m Jennett Hassell. Her father was John and died about 1796. Family history tells "John and the Negro man ran for the door John's wife was holding open for them. The Negro man got in to safety. Jane and her mother saw Jane's father scalped just outside the door." This death was said to have taken place near the site of the Hawkins School in Gallatin Tennessee.
Any information or leads on these Purviance's would be greatly appreciated.
