Yes, as my grandfather (your greatgrandfather) said "we dropped the pile when we came across the mountains". That was when the Purkey's came from PA to Ohio and settled around Bloomdale. As to Purkey's around Dayton in the 20's, our branch wasn't there untill your grandfather Glen, went there during WW2 in thr 40's.
