Researching the PURVIS family. My husband's mother was
Versie Victoria PURVIS, married Clyde KEENE, had a brother named Samuel Porter PURVIS, who we know very little about. He was born in Simpson, Co, May 1879 and died in Whitfield, Co. His mother and father were Newton and Victoria (COX) PURVIS. He was Versie's oldest brother and believed to have family around Chickasaw, Co. We would like to correspond with any one having info on him, or siblings.

I am researching the Cox family that lived in Chickasaw County 1852 - late 1860's. Do you have any information on Victoria Cox - her parents, siblings, etc? Just thought we might have a connection.

Thanks for anything you have. You can email me direct if you like - cokerhil@ebicom.net

I have Margaret Victoria Cox, daughter of William Cox and Nancy Anlenora Cantell. Margaret Victoria (b. 1861 in Clay Co.) married Thomas Vaughn. Sound familiar? If so I have some info on her. She is the sister to my great-grandmother Henrietta Rufinia Cox.

Hi Ruth,

We could possibly have a connection. We aren't sure of the age of my William Cox. I have found very little about him. I would welcome any information you have on your Victoria and Henrietta. Maybe we can establish something.

Thanks. You may email me direct at cokerhil@ebicom.net if you would like.
