Birth: Mar. 3, 1840
Madison County
Arkansas, USA
Death: Jul. 9, 1931
Ottawa County
Oklahoma, USA

James was son of John J. and Perlinda (Davis) Murphy, both natives of Tennessee, the father born in Giles County about 1813, and the mother in Maury County in 1811. While in Newton County recruiting, on January 12, 1863, he was wounded twice in the same engagement, but returned to his company as soon as able. He was captured in that county by the Confederate Home Guards in October, 1862, but was soon released. James was in Christian Co. MO when he married Theresa Johns. They resided in Christian County a short time after the war, and then removed to Barry County, where he made his home until 1872. Two years later he moved to Newton County, near Mt. Parthenon, and settled on a farm of 160 acres, 80 acres cleared. After settling in this county Mr. Murphy followed teaching for some time, and from 1882 to 1884 he was county school examiner. In the latter year he was elected probate and county judge, serving two years, and for some time was justice of the peace. He and wife have been Methodists from childhood. Later in life James and Theresa moved to Carroll Co. AR and then to Ottawa Co. OK.
