Query: My great-great-grandfather, John MURPHY, was born sometime in the 1780s. It is possible that the family might have lived in Clearfield Co., but to my knowledge they were Centre Co. people. John's mother's maiden name was Ruth CHIQUETTE (CHOQUETTE), and I have never been able to find out anything about her family. I am hoping that someone has heard the name, and will get in touch with me. John's children were Andrew Jackson MURPHY, Nancy Matilda MURPHY,(married Christopher MARKS), James Campbell MURPHY (married Rebecca SELLERS), George Washington MURPHY, John Wesley MURPHY, Jacob Y. Diller MURPHY (married Caroline Chambers), Hannah Maria MURPHY. Thanks for whatever help you can give. E-mail address: HMSheffer@aol.com
