The above chart on Percy McMurtry was compiled from information given by phone by Percy, Floyd, and Walter McMurtry of Detroit, James and Sallie McMurtry of Canton, Mississippi and by Cely Brown (aged 90) also of Canton, a cousin of Dannie Stevens, Percy's wife.

 

Walter remembered his father saying his grandfather's name was Franklin.  Cely Brown remembered that Percy's mother was Luisa White.  Walter remembered hearing the name Henry White.  The 1900 census shows Percy as a young boy living with a Henry White, presumably his grandfather.

 

Walter was born in Mississippi and came north in the 1950s to work for his brother in his brother's grocery market in Detroit.  He later went to work for Garwood Industries which built dump trucks and other machinery with hydraulic equipment.  Still later he worked for Chrysler where he retired around 1991.  He was the person in the family most interested in talking with his father about the family history.

Compiled from info from Hiram McMurtry (1977) and Tommie Standberry (1994).  Hosea McMurtry (2003,2005) indicated

that his father told him his grandfather was Jimbo McMurtry.

 

Hattie and Jimbo were both born in SC in 1851 and 1820 in the period before the major migration to Mississippi. 

They may have lived on the same plantation though whether they were blood relatives is unknown. 

 

In a previous chart, it was assumed that Tom son of Jimbo was the same individual as Tom son of Sampson, but

Hosea McMurtry said in 2005 that his father told him that his grandfather was Jimbo McMurtry.  Hosea also said that his

grandmother was Charity Hill and that she afterward married Ephraim Beeman.  She is listed in the 1920 census as

Charity Beaman b 1860 (mother of Tom b ca 1874).
