Bio and Links
Bio Photo Friends, you are invited to visit the memorial page for for our son
Nathan Peurifoy He died unexpectedly in October 2014 at age 26 from a diabetic coma.
I am taking a leave of absence from Find a grave for awhile. I'll keep up with my edits, but corrections will just have to wait..
Thank you all for your prayers, friendship and care. It is appreciated.

The life of a person is more than the dash between two dates. It is my hope that the memorials which I create or manage can make the individuals life fuller, even if just linking to family members or adding a few tidbits of information. Researching and including other family information makes them more than graves, they are people. Suggestions are welcome but please submit them using the edit button at the upper right corner of each memorial.
Even when transcribing cemeteries I work hard to link other family members.
I live in the northwestern mountains of North Carolina and have work primarily in cemeteries there. My current focus is Carolina Memorial Park in Concord, North Carolina. There are 28,000 graves but only about 9,000 listed. I've done more than 4,000 of those. Much of my family is buried there.


My family can be traced back 46 generations to County Leichester, England. The family is English/Norman. They came to England with William after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The photo above is my ancestor, Sir Nicholas Purefoy, buried in The Church of St. Michael and all Angels in Fenny Drayton, Co. Leicestershire, England. The spelling of my name is the most rare of the three family groups: Purefoy, Purifoy and Peurifoy. The early Purefoys were in Jamestown, VA long before the Hugonaut movement.
On my paternal side I am interested in the Peurifoy, Purifoy, Purefoy, Scott and Suther families.
For my maternal side are Statons, Stiller's,and Moores (from Stanly Co, NC).
My wife is from the Byrd and Carr families of Duplin County, NC.
You are invited to visit the memorials of my grandmother Lillian Scott Peurifoy, my mother
Hazel Staton Peurifoy
and Father Robert Eugene Peurifoy.

RE: Marion Hinds Memorial Transfer
Robert, my sister in law, who is buried at Oak Plains, also, was Rebecca Jane Williams (1932-2009) and she was the daughter of David Wilkerson Williams Sr. and Bettie Eleanor Hall. Rebecca was born in Rockfish Twsp, Rose Hill, N.C. Perhaps your wife new her or her family.

Once again, I would like to extend my sincere condolenses to you and your family for your loss.

It was heartbreaking to read of your son. Your memorial page was beautiful. I am so sorry for your loss.

My reason for accessing your profile page was to share a link I found on Lucy Morgan who is among your memorial pages. I enjoyed your bio on her. I am a Find A Grave member who appreciates learning about the life of the person for whom the page was made. I found the link below while working on the family of a WWII veteran in the Cherokee area.

Thought you might like to know about this link. Click: Lucy Morgan
