I am looking for the family/descendants of a William Murphy who was the son of John Murphy Jr. of Bedford County. He arrived in Franklin County about 1835 and married a Sophia Angle. Their oldest son Pleasant Murphy married Elizabeth and had three children, Eliza, James A., and Amanda E. James A. married Nancy Elizabeth ?? about 1897. Their oldest child William P. died in 1900. They also had son Patrick who lived less than a day. They had a son James F. Murphy who was born in 1900 died in 1978 and is buried in the Sandy Ridge Church Cemetery located on Rt. 635 near Rt. 697. James F. Murphy was married to an Elizabeth ???. She was born in 1903 and died in 1982. James F. did have sisters Hattie, Clara, Sallie, Mary and Elsie. Elsie would have been born about 1916 and may still be living. We would appreciate any information on the family. My wife is a MURPHY.
