Okay, haven't heard back from you about David but I'll go ahead and post census records for the David I mentioned above. You thought David had sons - and he did: David (junior) and Daniel.

This David R Murphy married a Josephine. I don't have their marriage record, but seems safe to say she was Josephine Alexander.

1910
Anniston Ward 1, Calhoun County, Alabama
David R Murphy 38, b in Kentucky
Josephine Murphy 32, b in Alabama
Anne Murphy 8, b abt 1902 in Alabama
Josephine Murphy 6, b abt 1904 in Alabama
David Murphy 4 b abt 1906 Alabama
A C Alexander 56 mother-in-law, born in Alabama
John H Alexander 33, married b Alabama
Maggie Alexander 23, married b Alabama
John C Alexander, six months old, born in Mississippi

1920
Calhoun County, Alabama
D R Murphy b abt 1874 in Kentucky
Josephine 41 b abt 1879 in Alabama
Anne C Murphy 18 b abt 1902 in Alabama
Josephine Murphy 16 b abt 1904 in Alabama
David R Murphy 13 b abt 1907 in Alabama
Daniel F Murphy 10 b abt 1910 in Alabama
Anna C. Alexander, 67, mother-in-law, born about 1853 in Alabama

1930
Daphne, Baldwin County, Alabama
David R Murphy 55 b abt 1875 in Kentucky
Josephine A Murphy 51 b abt 1879 in Alabama
Anne C Murphy 27 b abt 1903 in Alabama
David R Murphy 23 b abt 1907 in Alabama
Daniel H Murphy 21 b abt 1909 in Alabama
Anna L. Alexander, 78, widowed, mother-in-law b in Alabama

(1940 census transcription by Ancestry.com says Daniel R Murphy but original handwriting looks like David R Murphy to me)

1940
Daphne, Baldwin Alabama
Daniel R. Murphy b abt 1873 KY President, Normal School
Josephine, wife, b abt 1878 Alabama, librarian at the normal school

(Normal School = Daphne State Normal College)

1940 - the record below could be David R. Murphy's son David R. Murphy. You had remembered David Murphy as a surgeon living in Florida - so here you go, this matches that memory.

1940
Election Precinct 38, Hillsborough, Florida
David R Murphy 33 b abt 1907 Alabama PRIVATE SURGEON
Caroline G Murphy 32, b in Tennessee
David R. Murphy 7, son b about 1933 in Virginia
Bunton R Murphy 2, son born about 1938 in Florida
Residence 1935 Charlotteville, Albemarle, Virginia



Thus the most current direct male line descendants are these sons living in 1940 in Florida. I'll also check on Daniel Murphy's whereabouts (Daniel the other son of David R. Murphy).

I won't be able to track people further than the 1940 census - but there are people-search services online that can help.
