Looking for information on a Carl Murphy. He is the father of my grandfather, Bill J Morse (he changed his last name from Murphy to Morse). Carl was married to Leotta G Hill and they divorced after my grandfather was born. I do know that he remarried and had another son, Carl E. Murphy who lived in Carrier Mills and died there in 2005. Carl E was buried at Salem. Any help would be really appreciated.
