We now have three genealogy files on this site: our main database which is a combined ‘Ives-Leedom’ tree, plus two additional working trees with so-far unconnected people I've found along the way, ‘Leedoms-unknown’ and ‘Netherlands-unknown’. All of the Search results will identify which tree contains the individual or place in question.

Different sources sometimes have conflicting information and there are undoubtedly a few typographical errors in here as well. Please feel free to send us any corrections to errors you may find in our files. Additions are always welcome too!

    • Marriage record gives groom's age as 25, birth place as WI (even though he stated in 1910 census that he was born in IL), parents named as James M. Purkapile and Maria Loppin.

      The 1910 census gives his birth place as 'Illinois', Clarence's son Emerson stated his father was born in Fort Dodge, IA, in his affidavit for a Delayed Birth Certifcate. But Clarence's own 1903 Webster Co IA marriage record gives his birth place as Wisconsin.
