Birth: Nov. 11, 1888
Death: Aug. 4, 1944

Frederick Wigfall Purser was born in Dayton, Rhea County, Tennessee, the son of Henry Miller and Amanda Catherine (Lillard) Purser. When he was only six years old his father died, followed by his mother a few years later when he was eleven. With help from relatives an older sister managed to hold the family together, and later Fred, nicknamed "Potter" moved to Alabama to live with another married sister's family, and work as a blacksmith. He later moved to California, and apparently entered military service from there. He never married. His California death certificate incorrectly spells his middle name as "Wigfaw."
