So, this might be the Puryear family in 1900:

Mary Brown        20 -servant-mulatto- b. 1860 GA

It looks like by 1910, wife Anna is a widow:


1910 United States Federal Census about Anna E Puryear

There is an ancestral file for Francis that gives the following info:

spouse:        Anna Embezzeta BROWN (AFN: 28P3-11K )
marriage:        1 May 1877
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.2.1/MCGQ-P2F

If that is the case, then this might be Francis Marion in 1860:

And in 1870:

According to a tree on Ancestry.com he was the son of William Marcellus Puryear (1810-1866) & Mary Young (1817-1890). Hope this helps. Annie
