He grew to manhood in Peoria vicinity and when the Charles Leigh family came to a farm west of Clearfield about three miles, in 1900, he came with them. March 8th, 1905 he was united in marriage to Miss Alma Leigh, and he and his wife have resided on farms in Ring gold and Taylor counties all their married life. They bought the Edd Hartman place just west of town and for several years have resided there. He leaves to mourn his death, the faithful wife whose ministrations have -made it easier during his illness; one brother, Charles Murphy of Badadtia, Arkansas; one half-sister, Mrs. Kate Brown of Peoria, Illinois, and other relatives and many friends.
