  • Notes 
    • Elder David Purviance, brother of Anna Purviance Woods, was a ruling Elder of the Cane Ridge Presbyterian Church of Cane Ridge, KY when in 1803 Barton Stone decided to secede from the Presbyterian Church. David Purviance unites with Stone and others. In 1806 he bought land in Preble Co., OH and in 1807 organized a Campbelite Church with some 20-25 members, most of them having been members of the Cane Ridge, KY church, and most of them related to him.

      After his marriage his father settled him on a farm, on the south fork of the Yadkin river. There he commenced farming; but only continued about two years before many of his friends and relatives moves, some to Kentucky and some to Tennessee.

      "They continued there but a short time, before they found themselves unpleasantly situated. They were surrounded by the savages, engaged in stealing horses, burning houses and murdering the inhabitants, and after the Indians slew his younger brother, John Purviance, he and his wive visited her father's family, and some near relatives, who had lately made a settlement on Caneridge, Bourbon Co., KY. They were much pleased with the appearance and situation of the county, and through the solicitations of friends, and finding that they would not be so much exposed to the depredations of the Indians, they were induced to leave TN. In the fall of 1792, they emigrated to KY, and settled near his friends in Bourbon Co.. (RootsWeb World Connect. markfreeman@home.com, 8 July 2001)
