Robert, I failed to mention in my previous message my Samuel Purdum, after the death of his wife Rebecca, married Elizabeth Tullis. Samuel and Elizabeth had 6 children. Robert Valentine, Francis M, Mary E, Florence B, Emma May and Vista Viola. What's interesting is that Rebecca was the widow of John Tullis and they had a daughter named Elizabeth. Elizabeth was about 2 years old when Samuel married Rebecca. Could this Robert be yours?
