Mary Polly Yarbrough and John Murphy were married 217 years ago – July 14, 1795 – in Lincoln County, Kentucky. Mary was the daughter of Randolph Yarbrough and Mary Bailey. Mary and John had 8 children: Elizabeth, William, James, Hardin, Jane, Joseph, John and Lucy Murphy. The portion of Lincoln County they lived in became Garrard County in 1797. Several of their children – or their spouses – were involved in the Hill-Evans feud.

Always interested in any Murphy families. There are too many of them and I have not figured them all out yet. Were they Catholic (Murphey) or Protestant (Murphy)?

These are Protestant Murphy’s! I would love to find their earlier ancestors. Is this your line?
