     Ivan Willet Purdy was a Printer. He lived in 1962 at El Dorado, Butler Co., Kansas.

The following obituary was in The El Dorado Times (KS) newspaper, 20 March 1971, page 7.
Ivan W. Purdy, 77, a valued resident of this town for 46 years, died early today at Allen Memorial hospital. For many past years, he had been a sufferer from acute asthma and related affliction, and had required hospital care more than once in recent weeks. He was patient and brave, however, in the face of this ailment. Funeral services will be held Monday, March 22, at 10:30 a.m., in the chapel at the Kirby Funeral home, Rev. W. Frank Aten will officiate. Burial will be at the Walnut Valley Memorial Park.
Ivan Willet Purdy was born April 22, 1894, in Kingfisher, Okla. He was a printer by profession and one of the best advertising and make-up compositors The El Dorado Times ever had it its employ. He came to El Dorado in 1925 to take a position with this newspaper - which he never relinquished until old age and his malady caught up with him. His removal to this town was from Coffeyville, where he had been a star printer for the Coffeyville Journal.
Ivan fitted well into the social life of this community. He was a veteran of World War I, and a most loyal member of Capt. Edgar Dale Post of the American Legion. During the time when the Legion's club house here was built largely by the efforts of its members. Ivan would do a full day's work at The Times and then go to the Legion site for several hours more to toll on the construction job.
He was a bundle of eager energy and his pleasant and attractive ways caused him to make friends all over the community. He and his wife, Dorothy A. Mills, to whom he was married in Coffeyville on January 20, 1920 - were welcome members of a lively young crowd in El Dorado and were affiliated with many friendly circles.
Ivan was not a large man but he was wiry and full of vigor. He worked in the old newspaper office on East Central along with such luminaries as Otto Huttenhoff, O.L. Whitestine, Harmon Lane, Roy Doty, Bland Barnhart, Louis Gorzkiewicz, Bill Moter, Al Hudson and many others. He undertook the typographical education of younger men who served as apprentices. One of the last of these was Cletus Haines, who developed into an excellent craftsman.
The Purdy good nature around the shop was a byword. He was friendly with all members of the various staffs who made up the newspaper's working force - and he always enjoyed the full confidence and regard of the management. He was a member of the International Typographical Union. Mr. Purdy is survived by his wife, Mrs. Dorothy Purdy of the home at 405 North Emportia, and one daughter, Mrs. L. R. Cousland, of Liberal, Kansas, as well as by two grandchildren.

     Jacob Purdy was born circa 1739.1 He was born on 15 October 1739 at White Plains, Westchester Co., New York.2,3 He was the son of Samuel Purdy and Winnifred Wright Griffin.1 Jacob Purdy married Abigail Smith on 18 October 1762.1,2 Jacob Purdy died on 28 December 1822 at White Plains, Westchester Co., New York, at age 83.1,2,4 He was buried at Old Presbyterian Cemetery, White Plains, Westchester Co., New York.1,3
     "Revolutionary War Soldier who loaned his House to General George Washington to use as his Headquarters for the Battle of White Plains. One of White Plains' most famous residents, Jacob Purdy joined the Westchester Militia in 1775 and served until the end of the Revolution, and it is his name that the house bears today. It was this simple abode that General George Washington used as his headquarters during the Battle of White Plains in 1776 and again during his second stay for two months in 1778. The Historical Society hosts numerous events at the Purdy House during the year, such as a celebration for Washington's Birthday and an October event commemorating the anniversary of the Battle of White Plains."3

How many headquarters did General George Washington have on Oct. 28, 1776, during the one-hour Battle of White Plains?

This afternoon, when White Plains officials and historians dedicate the 265-year-old Jacob Purdy house on Park Avenue, they will attach a gleaming bronze plaque to the side of the restored farmhouse that reads: ''Jacob Purdy House. General Washington's Headquarters in 1776/1778. National Register of Historic Places. White Plains Historical Society.'' The words are remarkably similar to those found on another plaque, this one attached by the White Plains Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution to a small frame house on Virginia Road in North White Plains. It reads: ''General George Washington occupied this house as his headquarters from Oct. 23 to Nov. 10, 1776, and from July 26 to Sept. 23, 1778.''

But after a nearly century-long battle replete with painstaking research, careful letters and sharp rejoinders concerning which house actually served as the headquarters, the Battle of White Plains Monument Committee and the White Plains Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution appear eager to compromise. The Purdy house and the Washington Headquarters Museum, also known as the Miller house, can peacefully co-exist, the two organizations now agree.

''The battle was very fluid and possibly there were two headquarters,'' said Irving Natter, a White Plains businessman who is president of the Battle of White Plains Monument Committee and of the White Plains Historical Society. ''Washington may well have needed both a forward position and a fall-back position.5''
