This is a rather extensive Murphy family that goes back to the early 1700's out of Middleburg NY.
Actually there are three parts to this family documented in three books.
1. The Rifleman, The Life of Hunter Tim Murphy by John Brick. 2. Leather and Silk, The Life of Hunter John Myers by CSA Col John Esten Cooke. 3.Astoria, The Life of Hunter Robert Stuart.
These families are all intermarried setting up the Myers, Murphy, Brown, Stuart and Cooke family of CSA General JEB (Brown)Stuart married to Floria Cooke.Floria Cooke was Col John Esten Cooke's cousin.John Esten Cooke was General JEB Stuart's second in command.
All these families were at Dr Brewers house at General Stuart's death.I am looking for any relatives who have a connection to the Murphy, Brown, Bergen, Stuart, Myers or Cooke family from Winchester VA to Lake Placid NY.
