Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the youngest son of Lenoard W. Purifoy and Gertie H. Wilson Purifoy. I was born in Rodessa LA in 1939 but moved to Texas at a young age. I lived in Pasadena Tx. from 1948 until 1994. I then moved to Houston County Texas. A cousin told me of this site. I new that it would be a great help for people tracing there families past. I have been active in genealogy for many years and feel that this is something I could do to help others.

Marcella Purifoy
I believe they are the same person. Death certificate states b. 27 Jan 1846 d. 18 May 1923 buried: Pace Cemetery, parents, Robert Atkins and Lucinda Caldwell. An 1850 Ouachita Co. Census has a "Marcilla" listed with parents R.H. & Lucinda Atkins.

Hi Mickey, I wanted to learn the maiden name of her mother Lucinda, my gggrandfather was Marcella's brother John C. Atkins, finally I was able to locate a death certificate for her, while I was unable to locate one for John.

Antioch Cemetery Lovelady, Houston, Texas, USA.
Possibly you created this listing - if so, maybe you could add a Map? If not, could you tell me where the cemetery is located? I have 'kin-folk' buried there. Thank you most kindly for any information you can provide.

William Clarence Bledsoe
I would like to see Karen and Sharon Bledsoe in Shiloh cemetery in Miller county Arkansas linked to William Clarence Bledsoe at Shiloh. They are his twin daughters. They are also the granddaughters of Clarence Bledsoe and Lorene Bledsoe listed as well at Shiloh.

I am new at this site so I am not yet aware of all the workings. Could the grandparents on the other side of the family be linked as well?

Purifoy Cousin

I am the grandaughter of Etta Lee Purifoy, daughter of James Edward Berry Purifoy. That makes us 2nd cousins 1x removed. You have done such a great job on the pictures and bios. My mother lives in Genoa, Ar and I have been out to the cemeteries up there taking pictures for my whole family tree. Would love to talk sometime.

I've emailed you, but I'm interested if you have more information about the Pace-Smith Cemetery. A couple of Purifoys are buried there as well as an ancestor of mine, and I am wondering what relation your Purifoys had to the Paces and the Smiths. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

First let me thank you for your work on Find A Grave. I am requesting your permission to use any of the photos you have placed on Find A Grave of my ancestors. Of course I will give you full credit.

I would greatly appreciate it.

Christian Cemetery Duplicates
I meant no disrespect, I simply just wanted to get this duplicates situation sorted out. I have been talking with Sylvia L. Nimmo about duplicates in this site, and she said she made the duplicates because she couldn't get a hold of you to make corrections/additions to the memorials you created. I don't know the whole story or the circumstances, I'm just trying to help.

After going through the cemetery listings, I've found the following duplicates between you and Sylvia:

Elizabe(a)th Self Arthur
William H. Arthur
John Crawford Calhoun Beckom
Leo Eugene Causey
Nila Etta George Causey
[Mollie] Neoma Murphy Campbell
Diana Lynn Tumlinson Dalrymple
A.W. Daniel
James Daniel Faires
Mary Alice Murphy Houghten
J.B. Lewis
Martha E. Lewis
Mary Jane Lewis
Nellie Moore Link (Helliemoore Link)
Delpha Martin
Richard T. Moore
Frank B. Murphy
J.R. Murphy
Lucy S. Murphy
A.C. Robinson
Emma Kern Robinson
Young Son Robinson
William Hubbard Turner
Elizabeth Luther McKnight Weaver
Robert Toombs Weaver
Minnie Lee Barker Westmoreland
Robert E. Westmoreland
Annie Elizabeth Skillern Wilson

If you could, please get in contact with Sylvia and see if y'all can possibly merge your memorials; because there is info on hers that could be added to yours and vice versa. I am just a third party, so there's really nothing that I can do, but collaborating with her might solve this problem.
