Re: Murphy's Escambia Co. Fl.
Wild guess but since your name list is Murphy Raines and Douglas and all these are names known to be connected to the Myers family of Ft Myers in Lee County Florida, let me say this.

A well recorded Murphy family owned a lumber yard in Middleburg NY.There are lots of disagreemsents with this Murphy line on exacty who they were and even if they really existed.
One thing for sure, Henry Bacon along with his assistant Evelyn B Longamen, who designed the Lincoln Monument, set a Monument to Hunter Tim Murphy on the property around the fall of 1914.
Big disagreement on if this Murphy family owned other lumberyards.
You might want to research Lawrence C Murphy and William McCloskey of Lincoln County.Billy the Kidd killed Willima McCloskey setting off issues far and wide with General Lew Wallace.
You did say Douglas did you not?
