James Jefferson PIRTLE
Elizabeth BOATMAN
Husband:  James Jefferson PURTELL / PERTLE / PIRTLE
Birth:  19 Jul 1833, Sullivan Co., IN
Death:  16 May 1919, Sullivan Co., IN
Occupation:  farmer
Father:  Abel Carey PIRTLE (1800-1862)
Mother:  Mary FEREE (1810-1874)

I wonder if Abel's middle name isn't really Marley, not Carey.  I've never seen the source.

Marriage:  27/8 Aug 1857, Sullivan Co., IN
Wife:  Elizabeth BOATMAN
Birth:  1838/9, Sullivan Co., IN
Death:  24 Apr 1906, Sullivan Co., IN
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  William Jefferson BOATMAN
Mother:  Margaret Elizabeth BOATMAN
Children born in Sullivan Co., IN:
Note that our subjects have followed the tradition of naming their children after their parents.  The first son and daughter are named for the wife's parents; the second son and daughter are named for the husband's parents.  At least one other, related Sullivan County family did the same:  John & Sarah (TRIMBLE) WILLIS.

1.  William Jefferson PIRTLE, b. 1857/8
2.  Margaret E. PIRTLE, b. 1858/9
3.  Able / Abel Marley PIRTLE, b. 1861/2
4.  Robert Feree PIRTLE, b. 1864/5
5.  Friend L. PIRTLE [male], b. 1865/6
6.  Mary J. PIRTLE, b. 1866/7
14/15-year gap
7?  Laura M. PIRTLE, b. Nov 1881
8?  James M. PIRTLE, b. Dec 1882

I'm not entiely convinced Laura and James are Elizabeth's children, not just because of her age, but because of the 14/15-year gap between Mary and Laura.  Children born late in the life of a couple are very often the illegitimate children of an unwed daughter, whose indiscretion is being covered up by the parents claiming the offspring as their own.
