Daniel Murphree (1786-1828) was born to Levi Murphree, Sr. (b 1751 in Bertie County, NC and d 29 Jan 1798 in Pendleton West, Anderson County, SC) and Mary Ann Collins (b 1755 in NC and d 12 Sep 1842 in Bedford, Bedford County, TN). They were married in 1770 in SC.
Your Daniel Murphree (1786-1828) is my 4th great grand uncle. His brother, Caleb Murphree is my 4th great grand father. Our common ancestor is Levi Murphree, Sr., making us distant cousins!
Levi Murphree, Sr. was born to Daniel Murphree I (b 1715 in Dublin, Ireland (debatable) and d 10 Nov 1769 in Pittsboro, Chatham County, NC) and Sarah Demsey (b 1721 in Bertie County, NC and died after 1771 in SC).
I have a book, "Murphree Families of Blount County, Alabama" by Bruce A. Jordan. It is a compilation of multitudes of research performed by him and the Murphree Genealogical Association, as well as other family researchers. I met Bruce at the Four Families Reunion last year in Oneonta, AL, where I purchased his book. He can be reached at:
