Barbra I would be interested in the informtion you have tracing the Purdums back to Wales. I am of the MD. Purdums. My family includes John Purdum and Keziah Darby who were the parents of Walter Purdum b 12 May 1765 d 9 Mar 1836 Ross Cty., Ohio. John Purdum is listed as the only son of John Purdum b 1720 d 1747. This John was the son of John Purdum b 1700 d 1747 and Mary (unknown) b 1704. This is as far back as my records go for the Purdums.All of the above were born in Maryland.
