Birth record shows born 12-10-1901 in Marion, West Virginia to father Francis Marion Murphy & Anna.
Found a birth/death record for a male un-named 6 months gestation stillborn Marion Murphy and Anne "Bryant" Sep. 5 1900 1st child for her. Francis Occupation is listed as Fireman on this record. Monongah, Marion county WV
June 23 1900 census Monongah, Marion, WV Francis Occupation Fireman Sta., Anna, has had 0 children.

I was told Pa Charlie left home at age 13, mother and step-mother dead. Father Francis came down with TB and was sent to TB tents to die. His 3 half sister's were put on adoption train. I think this is why Pa Charlie had his birthday wrong on his death record, he was so young when he was on his own.
