The Wellington Leader  November 28, 1963

Mrs. Puryear was the former Eva Camp, daughter of John T. and Margaret Jane Camp, who came to Collingsworth County in 1899.  She was born at Spartanburg, South Carolina, March 16, 1881, a member of one of the early families of that area.  She came with her parents to Hunt county, Texas, in 1887, and lived there until the family moved here.

She was married to John E. Puryear October 20, 1904 in Wellington. From that time her life was closely identified with his interests and her greatest devotion was to her family.  While Mr. Puryear was a member of the 43rd Texas Legislature in l933 and 1934, and in the following term, when he worked closely with the legislature, Mrs. Puryear accompanied him to Austin and knew well many of the key figures in state government as well as those who were then and who were later to be known in the national government.  She joined her husband in his work and interest in fruit growing in the Wellington area as well as his other farm interests.  A few years ago, the
couple moved from their farm east of Wellington to the family home in Wellington.  She became a member of the Baptist Church 63 years ago and was one of the early members of First Baptist Church.

Surviving Mrs. Puryear are her husband, of the home; a daughter and son, Mrs. Margaret Peters of Dallas and E. C. Puryear of Kerrville; and two granddaughters, Mrs. S. C. Young (Carole) of Seattle, WA, and Mrs. Bob Duddington, (Dianne) of Weatherford.  Other survivors are a brother and two sisters, D. C. Camp of Wellington, Mrs. H. B. Duke of Dallas, and Mrs. C. X. Woodruff of Corpus Christi.
