There is a wonderful website for the Adams County, Ohio, Genealogical Society. Adams County is right next-door to Brown County, Ohio, where Mt. Orab is located. If my memory serves me correctly, there was a Luther Purdin in Adams County, both Brown and Adams Counties are on the Ohio River in Southern Ohio.
The Society has in its collection:
James William PURDIN & Hulda MELVIN
PURDIN Collection (Also BURTON)
information. I will get the Society's address and send it it another message. I have contended that the Purdum/Purdin/Purdon spellings in the above counties are the same family. The James William Purdin family may have come from New Jersey, however. I have just requested GenForum to add the surnames: Purdin, Purdon to the message boards. I was surprised when I checked that these surnames weren't already listed.
