Amelia,
I have the entire genealogy record done by Charles Law Early. He was a member of our family too. I gave a copy of the record to the Edgefield Genealogy Society. If you would like to know more about the family or have a copy of the records let me hear from you. According to Charles Law the original spelling appears to have been Shotover from Sussex England. There is quite a bit of royalty in the line. The first Sotcher that Charles Law has listed is William Sotcher of Byworth in the Parish of Petworth Sussex, England, born ca 1460. It is quite a family history.

The Crouch side of the family goes back to the Plantagenets and the Magna Carta.

Other names in the line are Bibby, Bland, Browne, Bush,Cullum, Ellzey, Epting, Fitz-Alan, Glenn, Hardy, Hazel, Johnson, Loftus, Mathews, Nevill, Pole, Schumpert, Schaffer, Scheale, Smith, Stanley, Strange, Turner, Watson.

Three of these families were signers of the Magna Carta.

The Murpheys don't seem to be found before Nicholas who came over with Oglethorpe, however. It is funny that Grandaddy's family was more promenent than Barbars.

Mother is the only one still alive and she turned 88 last Friday.
Hope to hear from you.
Lynette Whitlaw Williamson
