Owing to poor health, he was kept away from his company, and being unwilling to deprive his officers of the promotion they merited by continual service, he resigned. On recovering his health, a captain's commission was given him to recruit a company in the Northern Neck. Facing the same difficulties that T.W.T. Richards had in recruiting, he joined him in forming Company G.
After the war, Mr. Murphy, as attorney at law, practiced law, at Machodoc, Virginia.
