There is a story out of Harewood that the Murphy family was related to George Washington. Harewood was the Washington Home President James Madison married Dolley Payne Todd in September 1797.
The connection would be King Louis XV daughter Agatha Murphy and her connection to General Lafayette who was George Washington's aide and was also at this wedding.
Agatha Murphy would be Marie Antoinette's sister-in-law.
My work is on General Lafayette's daughter named Virginia Marie Antoinette Lafayette and her relationship to Marie Antoinette. Also if indeed Marie Antoinette's husband paid for the American Revolution like many historians think.
