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!

    • Named in the 1903 marriage record of his son, Clarence. James' death certificate names him as the son of John Boyer Purkapile, born in VA, and his unknown wife though she is stated to have been born in TN. It gives his birth place as Springfield IL. However, a delayed birth certificate affidavit dated 4 Dec 1941 by one of his sons, John Franklin Purkapile, states that James was born in Apple River WI.
