I was born and raised in the Wheeler Springs Community, Houston County, Texas. I am the grandaugher of Ed Murphy, a descendant of Vol Murphy, who was one of the first settlers in Houston County, also known as Freedom Colony, this location was near the Trinity River not far from Halls Bluff. Anyone with any information you would like to share, I would love to have it
I was raised by Ed Murphy, my grandfather and my grandmother Willie Murphy.
My grandfather Ed, was a great story
teller and spent a lot of time telling me about our History. This is why I became a historian,
I am giving the credit to both,
Ed Murphy and Mrs Wesley Taylor Fobbs for my love of all history. They were Both Members of Wheeler Springs Baptist Church Ed Murphy was the First Deacon, Organized church in 1928.... I created a family museum at the Wheeler Springs Baptist Church you will find a lot of our ancestors, from the community in there.
