Delora Puryear Kentucky-Alabama-Arkansas

Delora Puryear, born in Kentucky, migrated to Arkansas from Alabama after the Civil War with the Hyatt family. He married Martha Hyatt in 1869. The Hyatts and Puryears settled in Mine Creek Township, Hempstead County, Arkansas.
I have found him listed on the 1880 census and I know he died in 1898.
I wonder who was his father.
The census says his father was born in Virginia.
Family stories say the first of the Puryears came from France to New Orleans and was named Desota Puryear. I think he must have been at least two generations removed from Delora.
Can someone shed some light here?
