Thank you for posting this.

I've been trying to check on your blog every so often, and was excited to see one of my relatives at last.

Manerva Hamby Purkins was the daughter of Margaret Brasher and John Jesse Hamby, and Margaret was the sister of my 3rd-great grandfather, John Brasher, both being children of Thomas Brasher and Catherine Armstrong, or so we understand, anyway.
