In the early 1800s there were numerous Paddock families that moved to Michigan. A few ended up in Hillsdale Co.There were also a few Beebe families there. It appears that the presence there of these families and the Purchases, were what made the place attractive for the Hungerfords to move from Oakland county.A great-grandaughter of William Purchase, b. Ontario Co., New York married a Ray Beebe in Michigan. It is a fair bet that he is somehow related to Hannah. A rather complete tree of the Purchase family has been published and it contains a reference to the boarding of Hungerford children Sarah & Hiram.The reference to Ontario Co., NY may be a clue as to where to look for the then-contemporary Hungerfords.
