Della: I have a story, typed, unsigned, undated, that relates the story of John Robert, son of Dr. John Moffet in Ireland, who came to America and changed his name to Maphet, and moved to Philadelphia where he met and married Elizabeth Penn. To this union, several children were born, the oldest being John Robert, who was born in Ky, moved to Indiana and then to Missouri, near Milan. Two brothers of John Robert were killed in the Civil War and his remaining brother was, Charley T.(possibly Charles) Maphet. He had 7 sons, one of them being John Arthur Maphet, who lived in Rio Grande Valley, TX. A postscript added shows he died in 1942. There are mentions of Nettie Shepherd and Ethel Maphet, Maphet is the family name of my mother-in-law, Lillian Emma Maphet Eells, age 95. Her father was Charles Luther Maphet, Gate, OK., son of John Robert & Alice C. Munger Maphet. I've contacted Jan West and it appears we may have a 3-way fit. Can you confirm? Let me hear from you.
