MURPHY

(Son of George Murphey and Mary Polly Kimbell, wife of first Julia Longstreet and second to Annie Lindsay, moved into the Murphey house on Nucor property after the death of his parents. He moved to the hometown of his second wife where she died at LaGrange, Ga. leaving no heirs. His wish was to be buried whereever he died which was in Morgan County.
