John b abt <1800 married Ann (not sure about name) ?son Patrick b abt 1818 Dromcolloher married Margaret Herreen abt 1839. Daughter Brigid b abt 1820 married in Dublin prior to departure for Australia Margaret's brother Daniel Herreen in May 1840. Possible brother's of Patrick and Brigid are Michael and James. I am quite sure John and Ann? had other daughter(s) as it is mentioned that Brigid is being the youngest daughter of John Purtle. Any Purtle families out there from County Limerick with info?
