Hi Joyce:
My Great Grandfather James Tillman Purdum (b.1862 d 1948) married Carrie W. Higdon. They had a son named Ernst Purdum who married Cora. My Great Grandfather had four children: James Walter Purdum b. 1886 d 1978, he married Elsie Jane Walters and lived in Kensington, Md. He was my Grandfather; Charles Purdum; Ernst Purdum and Gertrude Purdum were the other children. They lived in Darnstown, Md. I have many vivid memories of our visits to Great Grandad's place. There is a family cemetery in Darnstown at the Presbyterian Church, many of our ancesters are buried there and are still being buried there today. I have pictures of Ernst & Cora and the rest of the family, post cards from them to Gertrude and the family bible. Great Grandad had a farm in Darnstown, which he sold, but kept a parcel and built a house. The house still stands and is on Route 28 in Darnstown. Send me an email, I have tons of information on our family.
