I believe I'm working on this set of Murphys as well. My great-great grandmother was Sallie Bett Murphy, who married John Bateman. She is buried at this family cemetery you mentioned. Although, there are VERY few stones with markings. Most are unidentified, and there's no one alive who knows who the graves belong to.

If these are the same family, then my Sallie Bett was born on June 22, 1859. I believe she had a brother Joseph who married the sister of her husband.

Do you know anything about Cherokee bloodlines in this family? My great-grandfather was part Cherokee, and I believe it came through the Murphy side.

I've only just begun to research this side of the family, and have been having a hard time so far. I'd appreciate any information you could give me.

Nat Murphy married a 2nd time in 1896 in Rockingham Co, and on that marriage license his father was listed as JOSEPH. I have not been able to find anything on this Joseph Murphy yet.

I am very interested in these Murphys, as well. My gg-gf was John Murphy (also known to be Cherokee) who married Elizabeth Chambers and lived in Leaksville, Rockingham County, North Carolina. He had a son that married a Sallie Robertson, born about 1859, married 3 Oct 1880 in Leaksville, NC. Another son married Nannie Sue Murphy. There were many Murphys in the Leaksville, NC and Henry County, VA area...across the NC-VA state line from one another. I would love to know more about this line of Murphys, who the father might be. Tks for any response. Mona Smith Supensky

My g-grandmother's father was John Murphy born, I think, 1828 who married Elizabeth Chambers born, I think, abt 1830-1831. They lived in the Leaksville area. My g-gm was born 1853, Martha Ann Murphy; and it appears she was their first born. If your Murphy lived in the Leaksville area, they are probably related. Have you traced your Murphy line back. Someone suggested I check Miles Murphy who lived in the neighborhood, and I think he had a son John. If you need more info re him, I have a little that I would be happy to share.

John Murphy married Elizabeth HUTSON, not Chambers, on Feb 1, 1851 in Rockingham County.

Their son William Murphy's death certificate stated that his parents were John Murphy and Bettie Hudson.

I was not able to find a NC death certificate for your John "Jack" Murphy who died in 1938 and who married Nancy Murphy. He may have died in VA.

Nancy's father was Nathaniel Garland Murphy who was born circa 1824. Nathaniel's 1st wife was Elizabeth Robertson (they married Jul 25, 1846). and his 2nd wife was Susan Ann Evans who he married on Nov 7, 1896.

Thanks for the input re Nathaniel. I'm wondering if we are discussing the same John Murphy who married an Elizabeth. Was the John you are speaking of born about 1828 and drowned in the James River? The Murphy name repeats are unbelievable. It appears that this line of Murphys lived on and around the NC-VA border, Rockingham, NC into Henry County, maybe Pittsylvania County, VA. In the early censuses, those that lived on the Old Mayfield Rd were sometimes listed as NC, other times VA. Apparently the state line was not clear. I read that sometime ago while researching another line. I am appreciating all the input!
