Most of this material was produced in the early 1980s, after which it was circulated among a few  Murphree Genealogical Association researchers and eventually published more or less intact on the original Bob’s Genealogy Filing Cabinet website in the late 1990s.   When that site was replaced several years ago I neglected to transfer this material over to the new website.  It is presented here essentially unchanged.   I have not done any active research on this family in several years.

My connection with this family is through a daughter of Solomon Murphree named Edith who married my ancestor Daniel Stephens (c1793-1853).

The Murphree Genealogical Association, which was inoperative for several years, has been reactivated and maintains a website at
