hello, I am the only grandson of "benny" Murrhee. My dad was jerrel sr., alsoan only child. He just died in nahunta, ga. at the age of 81...
I have quite a bit of info provided by my father before he passed. I have not yet taken the time to enter it into a database.
We are all related. French "hugonaughts" (is that how to spell it?) The original spelling was "deMARE" pronounced "marie".
The original (1600s) settlement was in the sitilla river basin area of south georgia & north florida. Our "old" homeplace is in Graham FL.
Ervin was my great and we look like the "herrin" side of the family according to my dad. Lizzy was married three times to the best of my knowledge. He said that the last time he was at the old place he was told that they thought he was "lizzys" daddy walking up.
nice seeing your post."MURRHEE" is one of the rare an hard to research names in america.
The men usually withdraw as they age and do not care for most people at all. They do like breeding dogs. They are independant and private in nature and lean toward politics, law enforcement, and some have been on the FLIP SIDE of that coin.
We have a relative named "florida willy" murrhee. Is that cracker or what? There is a strong connection to "wainwrights" "smiths" "johnsons" as well.
