A biography/family history of John M. Murphey is included in "Montana, Its Story and Biography", Vol 2. His ancestry is from the lines of the old Colonial Quakers of the Carolinas and Eastern Indiana. His grandfather was Robert T. Murphey, b. 1789, Wilmington, NC; moved to Eastern Indiana & married Sarah Burgess, b. 1795, Richmond, Indiana.

John Milton Murphey was born 19 Mar 1869, to Miles Milton Murphey and Mary Virginia Yount, born in Milton, Indiana, 19 Oct 1829; and Middleton, Indiana, 17 Feb 1837, respectively. Mary Virginia Yount, daughter of Joseph E. & Sophia Yount, died in Omaha, Nebraska. Miles Murphey died, 1914, Eugene, OR.

John M. was educated in Des Moines & Drake University. Moved to California with his parents at about age 16. In 1889, he located to Spokane, WA, to work in the fire insurance and real estate mortgage loans business. In 1898, he moved to Butte, MT, where he was director of Revenue Consolidated Gold Mines.

On 19 Jan 1898, Spokane, WA, John married Miss Alice Warren, daughter of General & Mrs. Charles S. Warren, of Butte, MT. Child: Katherine Warren Murphey

John M. Murphey, died 23 Oct 1924, age 54, Butte, MT (I believe this to be the correct John M. Murphey).

I am not related.
