  1. Might be a really long shot but does anyone have a MURPHY Family Bible, specifically for the counties of Jessamine, Garrard, Henry, Shelby, or Owen County, KY????? I’m looking for a sledge hammer to break down some walls in my tree. I can’t get back to KY for another few months.

Any thoughts?
