Looks like I have some work cut out for me to verify this information from 1981. There is a 2nd page that I have uploaded. 

I wanted to share this family photo of Henry Purifoy with the community. Location: Texarkana, TX. Date: 1981.

Hi Mike, I am a descendant of Buck Winchester Purifoy. He is my great-great grandfather on my mother's side. I see that he is your great-great grandfather on your mother's side also. I have a lot of research on the family prior to him, my maternal grandmother did a lot before she died. I too have the same genealogy papers for the Purifoy line that you posted. I may also have some pictures of some of them. My mother gave me a large box a while back. Get ahold of me sometime if you want to compare notes.

He is my 2x grandfather by adoption. Alvin Pelt his grandson married Marilyn McLendon when my mom was 2 and adopted her. The only person I remember is Granny Perry (Martha Ann Purifoy Pelt Perry). I think I have met his sister Mildred once or twice. It would be interesting to see if the lineage back to French royalty listed in the book is really accurate or not. While I know I'm not, it would be nice to confirm for the rest of my aunts, uncles and cousins.
