Arlene, I found two occurrences of Daniel Purkeys that I have been unable to connect, and I was wondering if you think they are the same Daniel that married Sarah mcKinney.
In 1860, there is a 13-year-old Daniel (and a 20-year-old James(?) Purkey) living with Stephen & Elizabeth Estes in Grainger Co (looks like District No 1, p. 2, household 9).(What would be their connection with the Estes's?)
In 1920 (Hamblen Co, p. 182b), there is a 72 year-old Daniel Purkey living with a son, Frank B., and daughter-in-law, Ida B. (both 34 years old).
Also, I wanted to ask, was Daniel's father Isaac the son of Michael Purkeypile?
