Dear Virginia,
Here is the census listing for Edward Purcell. He appears to be the son of Richard Purcell, with an uncle in the household also named Edward. I will also include the cemetery listings for this famly. They clarify things a bit.
Lastly, I found the younger Edward (s/o Richard) & wife Hattie in the 1900 census in Mt. Sterling with two small children, Frank and Margaret. He is listed as the County Clerk.
I'm thinking this is not your Edward, since yours was in St. Louis that year.
Hope these help, either way, even if it's to rule out the possibility.

Edward Purcell   V230
My Grandfather I hope!
He used Pershall & Purcell and I think born in 1854 TN. Found him only once and it was in the 1900 Census in St Louis...Thanks for your help!
