Most Murphrees living in the United States today can trace their lineage to Daniel Murphree (ca1715-1771.) If you are interested in discovering your Murphree heritage we hope you find your visit to the Murphree Homeplace enjoyable.
Even with the number of Murphree researchers these days we are still no closer to identifying Daniel's Irish forebears from the old country. Considering the lack of surviving records from the early sixteenth century we may never find the documentation we continue to look for. This lack of written evidence does not keep us from enjoying our Irish heritage as it has been passed down for many generations. After all, the Irish Bards of old carried on this tradition of oral history long before Christianity brought the written word to Ireland. We'll be adding new information as we discover it or as it is shared by other Murphree researchers. Please sign our guestbook, below, before you leave.
