In Reply to: Puryear Family in McLean County, KY by Susan Barnes of 759


My great grandfather was born William Elza Puyear
b. April 1877 in ? Kentucky, he married Irene
Waltrip November 2, 1898. in McLean County
Kentucky He moved to Mississippi county Missouri
about 1914, they had 8 children (I have info on
them all). My grandfather was Eugene Prayor b. June
27, 1903 in Fancy Farms KY and married Kathleen
O'Connor 19? in Mounds IL, she was his first wife
and my grandmother, they had 5 children.

Susan you mention hearing as a child of an argument
between brothers and a name change, well thats
exactly what happened with my great grandfather and
his brother Hensley, the nane went from Puyear to
Prayor, why I don't know.
Any help please.

Thanks,
Tina
