The Riverboat Murphys are related to the Stewart/Stuart families and would have relatives in both Pittsburgh and New Orleans. Pittsburgh and New Orleans would be both ends of the lines for "Riverboat" families. This goes back to Captain Nicholas Roosevelt and his steamboat The New Orleans.

So are you sure they were into Riverboats?
