Birth: Apr. 11, 1856

Death: Dec. 30, 1938, USA

His ancestry in the paternal line can be traced back in the state of New York to the eighteenth century. The great-grandfather, David Purdy, was born at North Castle, New York, in 1791.

George met and married his life's helpmate in Brooklyn, where she was visiting a sister, having gone to that city from her home in Cleveland, Ohio. In October, 1889, George E. Purdy came to South Dakota and settled in Brookings, where he has been the custodian of the buildings at the South Dakota State College.
