I'd like to get in touch with anyone tied to William Valentine and Jerusha (DICKENSON) MURPHY. Jerusha is the daughter of Hugh and Milly DICKENSON of Jackson County, MO. Milly was born Mildred "Milly" TEMPLETON on 17 Nov 1796 in North Carolina to Thomas and Mary (WIGFIELD) TEMPLETON, and is sister to my great(3) grandfather Amos TEMPLETON. I'd love to know what background on the TEMPLETON/WIGFIELD line might have been passed down in this family.
Hugh and Milly left Scott County, VA and settled in Jackson County, MO in the mid-1830s, possibly by way of Kentucky. They made the trip along with Hugh's family including parents Griffith and Rebecca (FLANNARY) DICKENSON. Hugh and Milly had the following children: Jerusha, Elizabeth, Charles W., Tabitha, Minerva, Polly and Strother. Hugh, Milly and Rebecca are buried in Green Chapel Cemetery in Jackson County... Hugh (15 June 1802 - 24 April 1871), Milly Templeton Dickenson, wife of Hugh Dickenson (28 Dec 1882, 86 yrs, 1 mon, 11 days; Rebecca Dickerson (sic), wife of Griffith Dickerson (sic) died 22 Aug 1860 in the 75th year of her age.
The only information known on the children: Jerusha (14 May 1833 - 8 Dec 1910) married William Valentine MURPHY (14 Feb 1829 - 6 May 1901)...had 5 kids: James Randolph, Lucy Ann, Josephine Elizabeth, Charles M., and Mary Angeline Tabitha. All of the children appear to have been born in Shasta County.
Charles in turn has at least 2 sons, Floyd M. and Glenn A.
Thanks in advance for your time,
Jack K. Templeton
