I am searching for any information regarding John Franklin "Johnny" TARPLEY, his wife, Erie nee MURPHY, and mother-in-law, Malinda A. nee MOSS MURPHY. They came to Tucumcari, Quay Co., NM abt 1905. Malinda A. MOSS MURPHY died 17(18) Feb 1915. John F. and Erie TARPLEY had the following children: Rosa Lee, Leroy Vernon, and Earl Trueman. Family story is that John F. started the first motorized taxi cab service in Tucumcari. They left Tucumcari abt 1922, moving to Sapulpa, Creek Co., OK., where John F. died Aug. 1948. Any information about this family while they lived in Tucumcari, NM would be greatly appreciated. Carol Tarpley Webster
