I am working on a Murphy Myers Croghan Stuart Cooke families connected to writer James Fenimore Cooper. The Croghans were Indian Traiders connected to James Fenimore Coopers father who was the Mayor of Albany NY. The Murphys belong to Revolutionary War Hero Hunter Tim Murphy and the Myers belong to Hunter John Myers and Seaman Ned Myers. The Stuarts belong to CSA General JEB Stuart who was married to Floria Cooke.

In James Fenimore Coopers book, The Life of Ned Myers, Ned Myers was the godson of Prince Edward. Since books have been written about all these people, it possible to cross reference all the names to find a source.

Since Tory William Franklin who was Benjamin Franklin's son introduced Ned Myers to James Fenimore Cooper, there can only be one source on the Murphy family. It has to do with Benjamin Franklin being the very first Ambassador to France at the time of King Louis XV and a young lady named Marie Louise Murphy.
