I'm looking for information -- like a death date which I assume to be after 1856 and prior to 1860 -- on Thomas George Washington MURPHY. All I have on him was that at one point he was married to a Mrs. Mary HUTHCINGS, (no idea which Hutchings she is a widow of) and after Mary, he wed Rachel HULL, youngest daughter of Richard HULL and Nancy STOCKSTILL.
By the 1860 census, TGW MURPHY's son Thomas Jackson MURPHY age 11 lived with his grandmother Nancy, while wife Rachel HULL and son George Washington MURPHY age 5 lived with one of Rachel's sisters, hence the assumption that TGW MURPHY died prior to 1860.
According to later census records for son GW, place of birth for Thomas George Washington MURPHY was assumed to be Illinois.
I do know that TGW MURPHY purchased and probably sold land a couple times but other than that I have nothing.
