This may help someone looking for Purkey/Perkey in Arkansas. The 1880 Federal Census for Sharp County Arkansas shows four young Purkeys each living with a different family. Mira, at 13, Mary at 15, Jasper at 18, and James at 20.Mira was with a Wooldridge family, Mary was with a Felts family, Jasper was with a Matlock family, and James was with a different Wooldridge family. Could be something happened to their parents and they were taken in by relatives or friends. If you need the info, and can't find the census, email me and I will send you a copy. Ray
