Hugh Murphy b<1718 d1762 married Mary. Under a precept dated 13 Apr. 1739 had 150a surveyed near the Congarees bounding: Capt. Thomas Brown & Richard Jackson. What was the relationship between Richard Jackson & Hugh Murphy? The will of Hugh Murphy dated 1762 names wife Mary, sons: Richard, Hugh, Phillip, & Dennis; daughters: Sarah Hay, Agatha Gill, Grace, Amey, Anna. Ex: wife & Wm. Hay.  Nine Children of Hugh Murphy & Mary are listed in the will:

  1. Richard Murphy b<1762
  2. Hugh Murphy b<1762
  3. Phillip Murphy b<1762
  4. Dennis Murphy b<1762
  5. Sarah Murphy b<1741 married a Hay (or Haigh, perhaps William Hay?)
  6. Agatha Murphy b<1741 married a Gill.  I believe this was John Gill born c1733, but it could have been James Gill, Jr.  It can only be one of these two.
