Daniel Murphy: Daniel helped Shirley Murphy with very good notes & records. Plus, a deep love for his Murphy Heritage. Shirley set a Civil War Marker for her greatgrand father, Joseph Hill Murphy. At the Liberty Hill Cemetery that day Shirley noticed Joseph's bro, John Calvin had a Civil War Marker...meaning someone was out there who is also working in this family. From there I track down Daniel thru Funeral Home Records. Daniel wrote me a letter requesting to be buried next to my greatgrand father Joseph Hill. It was the only available space left in Liberty Hill; and me knowing how much his soul was in that lovely spot of earth. Our fathers before us & the love, happiness, sad too..they shared. It is an Honor to have Daniel next to Joseph. I can just hear them listening to "Dixie"

Letter in File: These papers were made for me in the summer of 1976 most of them on or about July 22, 1976. My Aunt Leta Murphy did these for me & they form the most important part of the Murphy family history which I am trying to accumulate.
