Kentuckiana Genealogy: County: Floyd Co., Indiana: Murphy descendents from Kentucky to Indiana
|By Donald Murphy (Donn1e) (126.96.36.199) on Monday, December 09, 2002 - 04:34 am:|
My oldest Murphy is named Benjamin who married Mary "Polly" Cundiff in Hardin County in 1815. His son, Lloyd Murphy was born in Hardin County, KY in 1819. He married Paulina Cundiff on May 29, 1849 in Nelson County, KY. They moved to New Madrid, MO before the Civil War and supposedly returned before 1868. I have no idea where Lloyd went. There is no record of death. The rest of the family show up in 1870 Marion Co.,KY census. They were:
Laura A. Murphy (Howell)
Franklin Pierce Murphy m. Mary Elizabeth Clark.
Susan C. Murphy
Lualea J. Murphy
Sarah R. Murphy (born in New Madrid, MO)
I can find marriage record for Laura who married John W. Howell but it does not give me any clues as to her parent's whereabouts. I'm having difficulty finding anything on any of the other siblings either. Franklin is my line.
His children include:
(1)Maggie Murphy Underwood
(2)William Pierce Murphy
(3)Mary Plyne "Molly" Murphy Morris
(6)Louis Murphy - my grandfather.
William Pierce Murphy himself moved to Indiana and had several children. I would love to speak to any descendent of his. If anyone has any clues or similar names in their tree, please send me a line by email or snail mail. Many thanks,
