Isn't there anyone out there interested in Simon Murphy(sp) and his wife Lucretia Walker from Wake County NC??? I Am ! And I am trying to find any information out there on them. I have located their bond for marriage dtd 18th day of November 1811 for Wake Co., NC which proves that there was a Simon Murphy who married someone other than a Ms. Duke. I was also able to find a 1850 census for Greene Co. Alabama which has listed a number Murphy's (sp) who came to Alabama from either North Carolina or South Carolina. And guess what I noticed? Yes! There is listed Simon Murphey (sp) age 62 from NC along with his wife Lucretia age 62 from NC. and his family. This could be the Murphy family from Wake Co. NC. There is also a James Murphey (sp) age 54 from SC., Elizabeth age 45 from SC. I just thought that I would like to share this information with any person who is researching this branch of the North Carolina/Virginia Murphey/Murphy familes. By the way could it be possible that this Simon Murphy could be related to the Murphys in Franklin Co. NC and Surry VA?
