Thomas, thankyou for the wealth of information. I entered it all into my husband's family data-base.
I have additional info on a) the ancestors of Francis Purdy and Mary Elizabeth Brundage b) 3 Daniel Strang (Sr, Jr, iii) which your info helped me sort out
As it turns out my husband, John, is not related to any of them.However the Purdy family was very instrumental in the settlement of Westchester co, NY.A fact that I have determined from hours of reseach seeking John Williams (abt 1675 - 5/8/1729) of Westchester and his wife Abigail.
She could be Abigail Hubbard, d/o Edward & Martha Hubbard.Abigail married a John Williams in 1688.Information I just learned and have not yet explored.
