|Death: ||Dec. 25, 1877|
Martha W Puryear was born about 1828 in Henry or Clarke Co., GA, a daughter of William Puryear and Enisy Wooten.
Sister of Seymour, William H, Mary J, Wesley, Judith and Sidney Ann Puryear.
Martha married, 25 Jan 1848 in Henry Co., GA, Henry Valentine Miller, a son of Francis Miller and Hannah Mercer.
Mother of William Francis "Frank", Mary Jane "Mollie", Francis, Lucy Ann, Allethy K and Unisa H Miller.
Martha died in Milam Co., TX.
Note: The 3rd child of Henry and Martha listed above as Francis is enumerated on the 1860 Milam Co., TX census as Age 3 - Male, born in TX. Lucy Ann, the 4th child listed above, is not listed on the 1860 census, though her headstone indicates she was born in 1857. Since Francis, nor Lucy Ann, are listed on the 1870 census and we know that Lucy Ann died in 1861 [according to her headstone], I believe that Lucy Ann [female] was actually listed as Francis [male] on the 1860 Census. Further reasoning being that there is no known headstone for Francis at Miller Cemetery. If you have further information on Francis born about 1856 in TX, please contact me.
