Children of Elizabeth “Betsy” Purvis

On June 1st, 2014, I wrote about Betsy Purvis.
Circumstantial evidence points to either a “martial affair” or a “marriage” between Elizabeth “Betsy” Previtte Purvis and my 2nd Great Grandfather William A. Purvis.
Betsy Previtte Purvis has two Children:
  • Mary Jane Purvis, b. abt 1873; married Charles Franklin “Charlie” Lang
  • Ella Frances Purvis, b. 25 September 1881; married Thomas “Tom” T. Tarlton
At the time of birth of these two children, William A. Purvis is married to Sarah Jane Graves. Yet, Ella Frances Purvis Tarlton, Social Security Form 5, show her parents as Billie Purvis and Elizabeth Previtte. Betsy Purvis died 18 October 1926 in Richmond County, NC. After the death of Sarah in 1893 and William A. Purvis around 1900; Betsy sold off land (DB 33:370) that belonged to William A. Purvis and in one land dead she is referred to as his wife Betsy.

During the past week while probing around I came across a database of Delayed Birth certificate for South Carolina

While searching this database for the surname PURVIS; I found the following delayed birth certificate for Ella Jane Lang.

Ella Jane Lang was the first born child of Mary Jane Purvis and Charles Franklin Lang. Ella Jane was born 4 August 1889 in Chesterfield County, South Carolina. her mother died during childbirth or shortly after the birth of Frances Elizabeth “Effie” Lang in March 1895.

Appearing on behalf of Ella Jane Lang was her Uncle, Tom T. Tarlton and his wife Ella Frances Purvis Tarlton.

Ella Jane married Jack Allison Dillard about 1917 and at the time of this application (20 Sept 1955) she was living in Laurens County, South Carolina.

If you have any information about individuals mentioned within this article I would love to hear from you.
