His definition of Amanuensis is:

Caroline Campbell, b. 30 Jan 1810, daughter of Duncan N. Campbell and his wife Mary married George Purvis Jr.,  b. abt 1805. 

Gorge and Caroline were married about 1830. The couple had two daughters before his untimely death sometime before 20 June 1836.

Orphan Court Probate, Film 1673597, Index to Probate Minutes Book 3 pages 24, Jun 20, 1836 " Estate of G Pervis dec’d - Caroline Purvis administratrix (gave $1000 security) also ordered by court Duncan H. Campbell, Malcom McRaney & Moses McClure appraisers of the estate." (Wilcox County)

The parents of George Purvis, Jr are unknown. However, it is my opinion that he is related to the James F. and Gilbert Purvis families that migrated from Chesterfield County, SC to Alabama and Mississippi.
