Where did John Murphy come from?
John Murphy was born in Ireland around 1790. He immigrated to the US and married Elizabeth McClain from PA or MI. They had 6 children--William, Elvira, Albert, Moses, Mary Jane, and Almarinda. John and Elizabeth died in Missouri between 1850 & 1860 we think. John was in St. Charles County,MO by 1822. I have no idea of his earlier days.
