I want everyone to know that I have not ignored the many replies/entries from J Christiansen. In order to avoid cluttering this Forum with a lot of back-and-forth chatter,
J Christiansen and I have exchanged a lot of follow-up info using regular e-mail just between the two of us.
I'm still in desperate need of locating someone who is related to the Murphey bunch from Pembroke, KY. They were the grand-children of Edward Murphey, born 1801 in North Carolina, and his wife Rachel Thornberry, born 1813 in Virginia. This Edward and Rachel had about eight children, but I know nothing about any of them except Edward J. Murphey, born 1838, who was my grandfather. What happened to the other seven children and their descendants? Surely, there are a number people alive today who are part of this family. I am 83 years old and very anxious to learn of some
living Murphey relatives.
My ultimate goal is to locate a living male Murphey/Murphy who, at my expense, will submit a simple cheek-swab to
Family Tree DNA in Houston, TX to determine the y-DNA code to compare with mine. You see, I discovered late in life that I had been "adopted" as a brand new baby with no birth certificate, papers, agreements or anything. All people who might have had answers have long been dead. I have already had y-DNA and mt-DNA tests run on "cousins" on mama's side of the family, with no match. All I need now is a y-DNA test of a male Murphey/Murphy who is a descendant of the
Edward Murphey from North Carolina. I realize that such a test may have already been performed, and if there is "no match", I would have no way of knowing about it since I don't know the first names of any Murphey/Murphy "cousins".
I hope I'm not violating any rules of this Forum by posting a message such as this, but I don't know where else to turn for help.
Thank you very much.
