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 Freedmen 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, my grandfather Ed Murphy and Mrs Wesley Taylor Fobbs for my love of all history. I created a family museum at the Wheeler Springs Baptist Church you will find a lot of our ancestors, from the community in there.
I really enjoy the history of Houston County, right now I a volunteer at The Houston County Museum and The Houston County Historical Commission.
FROM THE FAQS: Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, or siblings. Bulk surname requests should not be made.
Duplicates are frowned upon. DO NOT make duplicate memorials.
NOTE: PLEASE do not just want them, give the family no matter HOW distant they are the first chance to have editing rights to the memorials that are of their family. Thank you.
I do love Findagrave and have every intention of always maintaining my contributions. If you need to contact me with other questions about memorials please add the topic of Findagrave in the Subject Line. Please add the memorial number on all of your requests. Thank you.
I went ahead and transferred 3 Leonard memorials to you. Those were the ones discussed in the emails between you, Carol J. and myself. I do not know which, if any, additional Leonard memorials you are interested in managing. Use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction to request additional Leonard transfers.
To request transfers of your Leonard relatives, use the "edit" tab and "suggest a correction". Just type "transfer" and your name with your Find A Grave #. That makes it very easy for me to make sure that I transfer the correct memorials to you.
I have been talking with Carol Hoch was Johnson regarding the information that she sent me on Levi Leonard and family, and working to get those family members correctly linked. She had forward to me an email that you sent to her regarding the Leonards.
If you would like to manage the memorials for the Leonards to which you are related, please use the Edit tab to suggest a correction and request a transfer, and I'll send them to you. I'd like them to be in the hands of family.
