I'm seeking information from if anyone who might know of the name Murphy, that is connected or assoiated with the Cherokee Indians?
My great great Uncle Thomas Berry Raper was a mixed Blood Cherokee Indian. He and several of his siblings have the name Murphy attached to their name in Indian Roll applacations.I know the Indians are a matriarchal society.The women is the one who names the children.They also get their last name from the mother. I was wondering if they might have kept the murphy name despite his last name bing Raper so as not to loose his Cherokee heritage?
