Tonya, Charles W. Purdom (b. ca. June 1881 in Kentucky) of Sugar Loaf Township, Marion Co., Arkansas was the son of John W. Purdom (b. ca. Sept 1854 in Kentucky) and Sarah E. Boles. John W. Purdom married Sarah E. Boles 5 April 1878 in McDonald Co., Missouri. John W. Purdom was the son of Benjamin Franklin Purdom (b. ca. 1833, d. 8 Dec. 1912) of McCracken County, Kentucky and Mary Francis Rice). John and his brother Willie both lived in Sugar Loaf Twp., Marion Co., Arkansas. Benjamin F. Purdom was the son of William D. Purdom of McCracken Co., Kentucky. William D. Purdom was born in North Carolina and his wife Mary was born in Tennessee. All these folks can be found in census records and traced fairly easily. I just started looking for these Purdoms today, so I don't have more details...yet.
