My mother was a Purtee (and that's my middle name). There are several Hannah, George, and James Purtees in my database--I'll need dates and places in order to confirm whether they are the same as mine, or how they link into my existing tree. Let me hear from you. Julian Donahue

It looks like you responded to my original inquiry on this website, and I never got back to look at it! Although I just sent you an e-mail, here's a more detailed recap of what I sent.

It looks like Aquilla (not Aguilla) Purtee (1788-1855) is our common ancestor--he is my GG Grandfather. Your line is descended from his marriage to Agnes Ward (his first wife, according to my records), while I am descended from his second wife, Sarah Cree (b 1808, Kentucky). Their children were Hugh H., Hiram (my Great Grandfather), Wesley, George R., Minerva J., and another Aquilla.

Hiram Purtee (b. 24 Dec. 1823, Meigs Twp., Adams Co., Ohio; d 2 May 1887, Edwardsville, Wyandotte Co., Kansas) married Susannah Herdman (b. 10 Dec. 1824, Adams Co., Ohio; d 10 Oct. 1919, Edwardsville, Kansas) on 5 Dec. 1844 in Adams Co., Ohio.

Their children were John, Wesley Cethus, Josephus, Sarah G., Aquilla R., Ruben/Reuben S., Susan C. (G.?), and George William ("Bill") Purtee (my grandfather).

George William Purtee (b 16 April 1861, Peebles, Adams Co., Ohio; d 15 Feb. 1923, Edwardsville/Muncioe, Wyandotte Co., Kansas) married Minerva Manora Jane Barger (b. 22 Sept. 1869, Bradley Co., Tennessee; d 19 Aug. 1940, Muncie, Wyandotte Co., Kansas) in April 1886, Edwardsville, Kansas. Their children were:

Hiram Guy, George Archie, Dove Ethel, John Hobart ("Jack"), Leonie F., Glenn F., Thelma Edna, Ora Lea, Christina Irene ("Chrissie"), Lola Frances [my mother], and Ruth Elizabeth.

If your records show another marriage for Aquila Purtee, to Sarah Cree, then let's fill in the blanks, cousin!

does anyone have any information on Elizabeth's last name?

by nancyelainestorer on 2015-01-13 23:08:35

Hi. I found It listed as Elizabeth Best.

I had seen notes about her being Native American, but no luck finding any official info to validate it. She is my 9th? grt grandma.
