Jim Thorton m. Effie Murphy-Union Co, AR

  of 77

I have been searching for Effie C. Murphy, b. 1899 Perry Co., AR. Her parents were: James "Jim" E. Murphy, b. 1872 Perry Co, AR and Molly Ford, b. 1878 AR.

Effie had one brother that I know of: George "Jack" H. Murphy, b. 1902 Perry Co, AR, my grandpa. Their mother Molly died when my grandpa was born and Jim married Catherine (maiden name ukn) Louis, b. 1864, AR, who had been married before. During 1910, Jim, Catherine, Effie, Jack, Catherine's son Melvew and Jim's nephew Alvie lived in Walnut Grove Township, Perry Co., AR.

We were told that both my grandpa's Jim and Jack, along with Effie and her baby daughter Irene, moved from AR to Borger, Hutchinson Co, TX around 1926. My grandpa rarely spoke of his Murphy side. He didn't keep in touch with them, so we never were given much information.

My grandma remembers meeting Effie and described her as "short with short strawberry blonde hair." Grandma also thought that Effie was divorced, but married again once in TX. I would like to find out if this Effie Murphy who married Jim Thorton in Union Co., AR 1920 is my grand aunt.

Thank you,
