Hi Tracy! Boy, have I got some info for you.They had eight children: David b.1817 Ephraim b.1820 Ann b.1826 Thomas James G. b.9/17/1830 Emma b.1836 John R. b.1838 Sarah b. 1839 Samuel S. b.1840 Tarlton apparently lived in the Newberry area.He is buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Union, SC.My wife's family descends from Thomas James G.All of his great great great grandchildren are living and most live in South Carolina.A good website for you to check out is the WorldConnect project at rootsweb.com.The section entitled "My 10K Family Tree" has Murphy and Sims info there.By the way, Nancy Sims apparently had a grandmother named Buzzard (c.1690).Do you know anything about her?Also, I'm looking for McDonald (or MacDonald) info.I had a great great great grandfather named John McDonald, who came over from Scotland at age 7.He married Polly Robinson and settled in SC.Do you have any info regarding this line?
Thanks for Your Help!
P.S.I still don't know who Tarlton Murphy's parents were.
