Would General Lafayette or his daughter Virginia Marie Antoinette know this Murphy family? General Lafayette started Mount St Mary's College in Emmitsburg MD with the Calvert family of Lord Baltimore and Bishop Duboise.
The Good General's foster brother, Dr Felix Brunot, is buried in Pittsburgh at Allegheny Cemetery. The rest of the Murphy and LaFayette group are buried at Versailles Cemetery in Pittsburgh.
One big donor to the restoration of Versailles in France was Franklin Murphy.
Do you think Benjamin Franklin would know this Murphy family?
The records clearly show Albert Gallatin saving a Murphy family living at Versailles Paris in 1794. Then records are clear they are living at Asylum PA in 1795.
I know for sure this Murphy family had a connection to Princes Grace Kelly in Philadelphia through LaSalle University.
My take is that the Murphys belong to the Duquesne Guiton Murphy and LaSalle family of Explorer Robert LaSalle.
