I do know that at least one male Murphree descendant has undergone DNA testing. I met him last year at the Four Families Reunion (Murphree, Bynum, Allgood, Cornelius). This year's reunion is 9/25 and 9/26 in Oneonta, AL. For more information regarding the reunion, visit www.fourfamiliesreunion.com.
I will be attending the reunion again this year and will ask if results can be shared with those of us conducting Murphree research. Look for a post from me the first week in October. I descend from the following Murphree line:
Daniel I (1715-1769) ~ Levi, Sr. (1751-1798) ~ Caleb (1796 - 1870) ~ Jesse B. (1829 - 1898) ~ Caleb R. (1856 - 1932) ~ Bertha (1894 - 1930 my great grandmother)
See message 970 and feel free to contact me through my email address.
