Mae Lucinda Gilpin Purchase born in Connecticut, she and her siblings were all 'first generation American'. Mae's middle name, Lucinda, is the first name of one of his older sisters. Mae married Floyd Purchase and lived in New Jersey. They had one daughter, Joan and a son, Buddy. I wish I knew more about her and her siblings, but people didn't talk much about family ancestry back then. I do know that many of her father's aunts and uncles left County Leitrim and Cavan for New Zealand. As did Lucinda Giilpin and her sister Harriet Gilpin. Both woman were single and boaded the ship for ChristChurch NZ in the 1880s. I too have that adventurous spirit.
