wvmurphy on Family Tree Circles
Journals and Posts
I have no info on Hugh Murphy other than family word of mouth. Supposed to have been kicked in the neck in a bar fight killing him instantly in Cannelton WV. Cannot find him on any census for Kanawha County or death record even through the archives in Charleston WV. Hugh Murphy of Northern Ireland and Emily Molly Johnson of Va are listed as father and mother on my Grandfathers death certificate. Also, they are listed on my Grandfathers brothers death certificate.
My Grandfather was James Edward Murphy bn 1884 Kanawha County. His brother Hugh Murphy (named after his father I assume) bn 1886/1887 Kanawha County.
Hugh Murphy (1835?) was suppose to have a brother named Neale (could be spelled differently)Murphy who went on to another state and was not heard of again.
Emily Molly Johnson married Sanford Brogan in 1891 and listed James Edward Murphy and Hugh Murphy on the 1900 census as if they were Brogans. The census taker or Emily did not make it clear that their last name was Murphy. Could not find a marriage certificate for Hugh Murphy and Emily Molly Johnson.
Hoping to hear from anyone who might have information. Thanks
