Looking for information on grandfathers John Murphey(4th)and Levi(2nd)of Macoupin County, IL. Date of birth unknown, but John's death was in 1839 in Macoupin. Leaves land (by patent) to wife Sally or grandson Levi Murphey (born 1819 in TN to unknown parents). Levi's first born son is named James - believe it's possible with Irish naming patterns this could be the name of Levi's father. Levi's second daughter's name is Lucy. Levi's father had already passed at the time of Levi's wedding in 1837 and mother's name is yet TBD. John Murphey also had close ties with the Primitive Baptist Church in IL. John arrives in Macoupin early in 1830, gets a patent, writes a will and dies before the next census in 1840. Believe this family ties with one of the Murphey families of Tennessee in early 1810-20's but have been unable to make the connection so far. Family first names are John (sigh), James, and Levi. Anything familiar here to other posters?
