a Deed from Tennessee Heirs to Thomas Murphy in Cumberland County
Kate McPhail is trying to find the location of the property that would contain the burying ground referred to below. Maybe someone related to Thomas Murphy is still in possession of the land. The Sarah listed may have been the wife of son Malcolm McPhail. Denial inherited this property from his father Dougald. This McPhail family came to Cumberland county early in the 1730's and a separate from the McPhail-Geddy line. The descendants settled in McMinn County TN till after 1880. May still reside there.
