Joanne, just had a look over my Purse death notes in my area of County Down and see a weird coincidence....
I have an inscription from Knock Cemetery as follows..

Erected to the memory of JOHN PURSS of Gilnahirk who died 1st January 1814 AD aged 53 years. Also his wife MARY PURSS who died 5th July 1826 aged 64 years. Also his daughter ELIZA who died 6th December 1811 aged 23 years. Also his daughter ABBY KENNEDY PURSS died April 1848 aged 50 years.

In the past the spelling of my family was Purss.
