MESSAGE: (#445617) Murphy descendants
AUTHOR: Jo Ann Hatstat
DATE: 5/24/2013 at 20:36:26
James Murphy was born about 1843/5 in Stockholm, St Lawrence Co. NY. He may
have served with the 92nd Regement Co H of NY Vols. in the Civil War. About
1866/7 he came to Hespeeria Michigan with his mother and her new
husband--"Betsey" Elizabeth (Edgerton) Murphy-Brooks and Schuyler Brooks and
some of the Brooks and Murphy children.
Later we find James Murphy--married to Susan Ann Lacken (born about 1848 in
Lower Canada)---They married 3 Jan 1882 in Iowa City Iowa. She is the daughter
of Patrick and Mary (Mcfee) Lacken
One history I found in a NY History book said that James--went west and
engaged in ranching and possibly joined the British army--but this history is
known for erroes so this may not be true. James did try to keep his fathers
contract farm going until the Civil war when he and his brothers culd not keep
up the payments and they lost the farm. ( His father-John Murphy-died in 1855)
If he was doing something out west it most likely was --farming--as such is
stated on his marriage papers. I am wondering if there is any indication that
a James Murphy may have had a farm near Iowa City Iowa??
They had a son--Lester B. Murphy born about 1892. I am thinking James must
have died about 1899-1900 but I need his death record to be sure.
A 1910 census finds Susan and Lester in Ward nine Detroit Michigan listed with
3 other males in the household--bossibly boarders. I would like to know when
she passed on and what became of Lester?? Did he marry and have children?? Are
there present day descendants?? Can any of you help me solve this mystery? I
would appreciate this a lot. Thank you for trying. Sincerely; Jo Ann Hatstat
