Purtell Family Genealogy Forum
Hello, I am re-researching my branch of Purtells. I finally have time to devote to it. But so far it is a part-time job!
My grandmother was Mabel Ariel Purtell. She died September 20,1998, Glendale, California. Sister of Eleanor Cook, daughter of Thomas Robert and Lydia ("Nellie") Ariel Ross.
I am still looking for of course information on family,but most of all a great-grandfather Thomas Robert Harriman Purtell. He disappeared around 1910? Salem/Cambridge Mass. area of the country. I have heard that someone in that area knew his whereabouts but was sworn to the death not to tell the story. There was a judge but he has since died I heard that knew where he went? We have reason to believe the West Coast, Oregon maybe... Thank you for reading and any follow ups. You are all appreciated. Rhonda
