mr. & Mrs. Charles S Purdy
Mr. & Mrs. Charles H. Purdy
Mr. & Mrs. Joe Priess
I visited with a member of the Priess family and their are 3 Joes Priess that have lived here.
Joe & Madalina Hansen
Joe & Nesta ? (could it be Purdy?)
Joe & ____________ born in 1922 so too young to fit in here
I find no Purdy's in our local:
Funeral home records
Box Butte County marriage Records
Box Butte County Court records had a money judgement of 1st National bank vs. Jesse Purdy
I can find no other reference to the Purdy family and we have the majority of records available in th ecounty housed here.
If I can look for anything else for you or you have any more clues, please let me know.
