Bugg, Murphy, Wheat, Carpenter, and Collier

Seeking to correspond with persons with knowledge of Ora Lee Murphy born 1886 who married Samuel Nelson Wheat and who is buried near Ludlow, Kentucky.

She was the daughter of Lemuel Murphy and Mary Frances Bugg. Her siblings were Ethel who married John Collier, Lucien, and Ella who married married Oscar Carpenter.

I have 1918 Mercer County land records naming these persons and the sale of property on Fallis Run and the Dixville Pike.

I also have a census index for 1910 at which time Ora Lee and her daughter, Gladys Wheat, were living with her sister Ella and Oscar Carpenter. This index is not clear, but seems to make reference to a Samuel Wheat aged two. Ora Lee's husband was in the state penitentiary at the time.

Lemuel Murphy, Mary Francis Bugg, and Lucien Murphy are buried at the Bethel Cumberland Perebyterian cemetery between Harrodsburg and Perryville.
