A Reader's Brick Wall

Here is a real life brick wall for you to work on sent to me by Charlie. I have been helping Charlie behind the scenes but I would love for you to take a look and see what suggestions you might offer him. The more people that look at a problem the quicker it will get solved.

"For 36 years I have searched for the parents of William A. Purvis born between 1824-1827 in NC or SC and died between Sept 1899 and May 1900 without any success or possibilities. I'm at a loss because I just don't have a clue where to go next. I feel that I am an excellent researcher but the lack of any clue to my great great grandfather's parents is putting a cloud over my head about my capabilities. Would you please review these 3 articles and offer up some suggestions."

Here are the 3 articles/blog posts that Charlie is talking about. I LOVE Charlie's timeline! It is an excellent example.
