Polly (Purdy) Crail
There is an account of the attack where her father was killed but two referrences called her father James and another John. A Crail researcher and a cousin Brenda familiar with the oral history of our family said Polly's brother who survived was named Samuel Purdy Jr. This would make the Father's name Samuel Purdy Sr. but I have no proof. Polly did name one of her sons Samuel Purdy Crail. I know that there was a brother with the young samuel Purdy Jr. the day his family was attacked. Somewhere I read that Polly and her family had just moved to the site above Now Wheeling that summer and apparently had come from perhaps Pennjsylvania but not sure. That's all I have for now. Also Samuel Jr. when he moved to Kentucky and married did not name any Samuel. Keep me in touch if you get more info. Thank you. kcv
