Looking for any PURSLEY interested in family history and who might have old Bible records or other old documents pertaining to this family. I am related to the PURSLEY family who settled in San Jacinto Co., TX, before statehood, coming from IL, and before that from SC. Guion Black Pursley's father, William PURSLEY, was a brother to my ancestor James PURSLEY. Their parents were John and Mary BLACK PURSLEY from York Co., SC. William was born about 1778 in York Co and died about 1828 in Bond/Marion Co., IL. My James PURSLEY was born about 1780 in York Co and died in E.TN before 1840. James married Nancy KING and their son, James Guion PURSLEY, born 1825 in E. TN, is my ancestor. J.G. settled in Indian Territory, OK in the 1880s. James G. married Hannah LONGLEY, daughter of Joel and Nancy BODINE LONGLEY. Their son, Joel Thomas PURSLEY, born 1854 in E. TN, is my ancestor. He married Nancy Ann KIRKPATRICK in Johnson Co., AR, daughter of Jesse Martin KIRKPATRICK. Please contact Juanima McFarland -
