I so not know if this is yours but there is a Robert Murphy living in Jefferson Co. Tenn. 1830; along with him living next door is a Joshua Murphy so probably related; maybe his father. There was also a William Murphy who was in the Rev. War and his daughter Jemima m. Samuel Box. Samuel Box also lived close to Robert Murphy. I really am not a Murphy researcher but a Davis researcher that lead me to the Murphy and Box familis. Samuel Davis m. Lydia (Liddy) Murphy; Samuel Box Jr. m. Jemima Murphy; sometimes you will see a Samuel Pleasant Box and a Samuel Box who are father and son but on this particular census page they are listed as Samuel Box Sr. and Samuel Box Jr.
If you are interested in learning about William Murphy his Rev. War Application is at Fold3 and Interesting; also his son in law's Samuel Box who was also William's guardian later in life has a pension; and it is mentioned that he wants to take Wm. Murphy to Bolivar Mo. with his own family because there would be no one to take care of him.
I am only telling you this because of the relationship of at least Wm. Murphy and since Robert Murphy and Joshua Murphy are living close to each other as well as Box and Davis families I just thought it might give you a lead. I hope so. Good luck
