In Reply to: Bennett Hutcheson Puryear b 1887 Virginia and Mabel Hutcheson by Donna Dean of 758

There is an obituary in the Fairfax Herald on 10/06/1961 page 1 for Mrs. Mabel Puryear. You can search an index online at http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/library/newsindex/

When you type in Puryear, you will see in the index that there is an entry that states that Bennett H. Puryear's wife dies. Since this is the same date a page number as Mabel's obit, I suspect this is the same article.

There is another entry stating that Dr. M. M. Puryear's mother died. (Again same date/page).

To confirm that Bennett H. Puryear's wife was Mabel and son was Dr. M M Puryear, you can order the obituary for a small fee from the library.
