Hi, I am trying to locate descendants of John Purcell born in Co. Clare Ireland in 1860 and died in Alameda California in 1904. He wasa well known Athlete in the San Francisco area. He worked in Hibernia Bank and was married with 4 children at the time of his death. He died tragically by suicide and we believe he had a brother Patrick living locally. His wife may have been Higgins but we are not sure of that. Any information would be great as my family have honoured his athletic achievements by dedicating a running track in Co. Clare in his name. We have been trying for years to gather as much information as possible. The following link also gives us alot of information.
