You may want to check into the Randolph County WV records. My great grandfather was Samuel A. Purkey. He is listed in the 1860 Randolph Census Index.
I too am looking for a John Purkey who I believe is my Grandfather. My father did some research years ago (Clifford R. Purkey of Elkins WV 1910-1981) I am waiting for this to be sent to me from my sister. In it are more details relating to John Purkey and I believe a conection to PA. Please keep me informed if this helps in any way.
