You must not have gotten my e-mail to you on Sept. 5, 2000
I only have information on a few of their children.
I have nothing on the following children: George W., Hiram, Nelson, William (although I think he went to Wisconsin, then Mower Co, MN -Source:land records and obit for Amy Eddy Purdy)(Source of children: Eddy Family in America, 1930)
Amy Eddy born 1802, married William Purdy (parentage unknown; known siblings - Belinda, Elizabeth who married Ferguson brothers) on Dec. 26, 1825 in Haldimand Twp, Northumberland Co, Ontario. 10 children. Amy and William moved in 1849 to Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, sometime around 1860 they moved to Iowa and are found in Algona, Kossuth Co, IA in 1874 (Diary of Susan Prentice Purdy, wife of Hiram Eddy Purdy - son of William and Amy, places them 4 miles south of Algona). Susan's diary mentions on April 17, 1875 that "Wm. Purdy and family moved to village." This would be Lake City, Calhoun Co, Iowa. They then moved in 1876 to Mower Co, Minnesota where they both died in a tragic house fire on Sept. 12, 1880. Based on the obit of William and Amy, one of the above brothers was also in Mower Co, MN. I think it may be William, as land records in 1856 in Forest Twp, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin show a William Eddy with a plat near a W. Purdy.
