Purcell Children
Georgia M Smith, mother of Ernest James McDowell, Wilma McDowell Schneider, and Ruth Engle, was married to Donald Purcell, the birth father of my mother-in-law, Phyllis Ann Knapp Purcell Wheeler Knapp. Phyllis' mother was Louise Knapp, who probably was married to Donald after the birth of Phyllis, as she and Donald went on to have 3 more children: Ardith, Arlene, and Edward Purcell. Donald and Georgia were married sometime before 1940, when they are found living together in Kent County.

Georgia's daughter, Ruth, was the product of her marriage to Herman Engle, whom she married on the 8th of October, 1920 in Grand Rapids. There is a record of their marriage at https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N3B2-8XQ. She is listed as Georgia Smith McDowell. She married Harvey McDowell in Harrison County, West Virginia, on the 9th of Feb, 1913. Perhaps you already had this information? If not, I hope this helps. :)

Denise Lemon Knapp
Phyllis and her husband, Jack Knapp, were not related by blood. Louise Knapp's Knapp family was from Ohio. Jack's was from New England.
