My gggfather was Jesse Purkeypile, 22 Jan 1804-27 Mar 1883, born in York Co, PA. His father was Andrew Purkeypile, from York Co. Andrew born 1754, d.24 Dec 1840 at Middletown, OH. Andrew bought land in Polk Twp., Crawford Co., OH in 1831. Jesse had a sister Margaret, b. 1801, m. John Smith in 1822, had 10 children, d. 1857 in Galion (Polk Twp.) OH. Their 3 oldest children were born in Shrewsbury, York, PA. 1850 OH census shows Jesse in Jackson, Crawford, Ohio with some of his sister's children, apparently, living with him. Next door is Jacob Purkeypile, age 63 and his wife Margaret, age 64, both born in PA.

Do these names tie in with anyone you're searching for?
