In Reply to: ANY INFORMATION ON PURYEAR by Benresa Puryear of 758

hi there benresa i thought i would answer your post since no one has yet and since i have spent many many hours researching my own puryear lineage this past month i too wanted to be able to tell my son James Michael b.9-19-06 where we come from there are a couple of books on the puryear family tree one of them is on this site they may be able to help you but they are incomplete (they left my entire line out) so dont stop there the caucasian puryears in north America come from samuel b.1694 in either France or Virginia his father was born in Alsace France after that good luck because it gets pretty wild I've read things on the www like we're descendants of moses or st.joseph of arimathea (bloodline of the holy grail/shroud of Turin)or st.james brother Jesus but there's nothing but blogs I've come across to back this up maybe not Hawaiian but Hebrew haha i too have brown curly hair & dark skin like my dad Leonard but seriously the Mormons l.d.s. were a big help they are all about tracing back family roots also one more thing the puryear men of past some of them married multiple times & had multiple children so it gets tricky hope i have been helpful my lineage is myself David Leonard son of Leonard-napoleon-Silvester-Michael-Jesse jr.-Jesse sr.-Thomas-Samuel & if anybody out there can prove different please enlighten me!
