Walter E. Murphey, Jr. - Georgia

Looking for relatives of Walter E. Murphey, Jr. born in Georgia.

He and his brother, John, came to Tucson, Arizona (date unknown). Both brothers were in real estate, Walter owning Murphey Trust in Tucson, Arizona. At some point, Walter married my great Aunt Helen Andrews originally from California. They raised my mother, their niece, from about age 6 (c. 1946). Walter and Helen never had any children of their own, but John did. Who are they and where are they. Family names that might ring a bell are Avery, Snowden, Bertram, Andrews, Heatley. Walter and John's Mother's first name was "Lizzie".

I have photos, newspaper articles, Jr. high school graduation certificate, real estate ledgers, deed books and much, much more. There is reference to Walter in one of the Arizona "who's who" history books.

If you have any infrmation, email me at
