Joseph Murphy is my 3rd great. His daughter, Caroline Augusta Murphy (1835-1903) married William Bird Simpson sometime in the 1850s. About 1860 the young family was in Murfreesboro, farming. About 1878 they gave up farming, moved to Nashville. May 1878, their daughter, Sarah Bird Simpson married David M. Elliott. Elliott was a mere two years younger than Sarah’s father. And, Elliott was a YANKEE! He served in the Wisconsin 24th infantry. Union put him in Nashville; he never left. David M. Elliott-Sarah Bird Simpson had two daughter and three sons.
