RE: Thomas Erie Purtee
Hey it's no problem at all.

I'd love to send you more information on the family...and hopefully get you to fill in anything I have missing :)

Is your yahoo email address on your profile still a good email?

RE: Thomas Erie Purtee
Okay I did little research...your Oliver Robert Purtee and my Grandfather (William Remmel Purtee) were third cousins (they shared a common GG Grandfather)

I'm a little confused by what you said though and can't figure out how you and I are related.

You said Oliver Robert Purtee was married to your Dad's sister? So you aren't really a blood relative of this Purtee? Am I understanding this correctly?

I have this Purtee line researched all the way to France if you want more information.

I only have basic information on Oliver Robert but have a bit more on Thomas Erie

Hi Ronald

My mom's maiden name is Purtee. Let me get my big 'ol genealogy book out and figure out how we're related!

RE: Thomas Baxter
Thomas was married to both Nancy (1st), then Lydia (2nd). I believe they were sisters or close cousins.

From what I have seen, it appears that Thomas Baxter moved west to Morgan County with Anthony & Priscilla Ward. Thomas is buried in the middle of the Ward "Family Plot" at White Lick.

I'm sending you a doc attachment I found by email. I'm not sure how correct this is.

RE: Thomas Baxter
I'm descended from Thomas & Lydia Murphy Baxter through Adaline Baxter Ward.

I've not worked on Thomas & Lydia's line in a while due to work hour conflicts. I don't have a great deal & had hit that 'brick wall' on both Thomas & Lydia. Also, I and another researcher were trying to prove - or disprove if Thomas had fought in the Revolutionary War. The local VFW post had created a list of soldiers and veterans and noted that Thomas Baxter was a Revolutionary War soldier (which we found this record was wrong). I drive past the cemetery he is buried in all the time.

On a side note - one of Stephen & Adaline's sons - Lewis Baxter Ward - graduated medical school and became a doctor. (memorial #19756033) (I sent a correction to add his parents to the memorial).

thanks for the quick reply.
