George Duncan Purcell was primarily a farmer but also worked as a carpenter, oil distributor, and teamster (mules). He and his family moved numerous times seeking better economic opportunity. He kept a Journal from 1868 until his death in July 1923. The Journal was transcribed by Aloa Dereta in the 1980s and copies are available at the Mormon Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. As of 2023, the location of the original diaries is unknown.
