Notes

  • Two sources report Murphy as well as his wife died in JeffersonCounty, Tennessee, where they were married, and where he was born.One also reports his birthplace there, as given above.  However, afamily in Missouri in 1880 appears to match them in every detail.

    It appears that the family moved at some time before 1880 to MadisonCounty, Missouri, where they are reported to be living in GermanTownship.  Other Stranges from this family moved to Missouri, but arereported in Moniteau County.

    Murphy C and wife Mary F are shown with two children.  In this census,Mary's birthplace is reported as Virginia, which the genealogies didnot have.

    From the ages in this census, they would have had to move to Missouriin 1879.  Their last child Charles C Strange is aged 5 months.  Hewould have been born in December 1879 or January 1880.

    Initially the latest information I could find on Murphy Columbus andhis family was this 1880 census.  I had seen his death information inan anonymous genealogy in the World Family Tree collection(Genealogy.com), which gave his death information as 3 August 1919 inJefferson County, Tennessee, but I had not found any information abouthis moving back to Tennessee.  In November 2007, I got an email fromSteven Strange, a great grandson of Murphy's telling me they hadindeed moved back to Tennessee, where more children were born.  In1881, Murphy and Mary had a son named Arthur, in Jefferson County,Tennessee, where the family had come from.  Other children were bornlater.

    From the dates of birth of the children, it appears Murphy and Marywere in Missouri only between one year and 1.5 years.  Their sonCharles C was born in Tennessee in January 1880, and they were in thecensus in Missouri in June 1880.  Then their next child, ArthurStrange, was born in Tennessee in October 1881, according to Arhtur'sgrandson Steven Strange, and the 1900 census.

    I later found the record of Murphy and Mary and their family inJefferson County, Tennessee.
