There are diffently two, I believe they are from the same family. Each side had Elija and Elisha, I believe the one that married Calle Swan is the youngest brother, born just before his dad Nathan died. The Rebecca Etchison that was married to Nathan Purdum remarried and moved to Ohio, some kids went with her and some stayed back with the grandparents. Old stories. My Elisha Purdum married Lucinda Shipley dau of Archibald Shipley that remarried to Rebecca(Etchison)Purdum. The Elija Purdum was in the Civil war, he is the one married to Calle Swan. They later moved to Ill,Iowa,NEbraska(buried there), ARkansas.
