does anyone have any more info On Jackson and Rebecca (hittle) Purkey. I haven't found out what happened to Rebecca.
Jackson Purkey (Perkey) married Rebecca Ann Hittle in Henry Co. In.on 7-7-1839 according to the Indiana State Genealogy Division’s Indiana Marriages through 1850. This accessable at: http://www.statelib.lib.in.us/www/isl/indiana/genealogy/mirr.html
On 5-10-1848 Jackson was issued a land Patent for 40 acres in Marshall Co. In.
Block Township Range Fract.
Section Meridian State Counties Survey
NESW 8/ 32-N 2-E No 2nd PM IN Marshall
It states that Jackson Purkey was from Marshall Co Indiana. This suggests me that between 1839 and 1848 Jackson and Rebecca came to Marshall Co. The Patent is veiwable by following the links at:
According to the Marshall Co. 1850 Census, (veiwable at: ), http://www.us-census.org/states.htm , Rebecca is 30 and Jackson is 29 and Hanna Hittle ,age85, is living with them. And Children
PURKY Areu D. 3 ..PURKY Hannah 6 …..PURKY Mary J.
PURKY Christian 11 …PURKY Letticia 2/12
It says Jackson was born in Tn. And Rebecca was born in Pa.
