Mandy and Peter:

I am interested in your Purtell/Purtill history. There is some thinking among my family that our family changed thewir name to Purtell when they arrived in the US.

I have James Purtell arriving in 1889 and was made a citizen in 1894. His parents were John Purtell and Catharine McGrath. I have no other information on where he was born or where in Ireland his family lived. I also have no idea if he came over with any brothers or other family members.

James married Kate Whelan around 1894. They had 5 children, one of which was John who was my great great grandfather.
