In Reply to: E. M. W. Durphey by Nancy Weiland of 889

Have you seen the will of William Webb of Buckingham county dated 12 June 1829? William was the father of Sarah Ann Webb. He died 8 June 1830. There is also a copy of his bible records that I have. I think there was a mistake in recording the marriage of D.E.M.W. Durphy and Abraham Webb on Feb. 7, 1822. I think it should read Dr. Edward M.W. Durphey and Sarah Ann Webb. I note in the bible records that their oldest child was a Neptune Durphey born Feb. 7, 1822. Ed M. W. Durphey died 14 Dec. 1857 in Appomattox Co. I have seven children listed for him. In 1815 there was an E. Walker Durfey as deputy postmaster in York/Williamsburg. In 1816 Dr. E.M.W. Durphey lived in the city of Richmond. By 1820 he was in Charlotte Co VA and in the 1850 census he is in Appomattox Co.

I believe Dr. Durphey ties into the line of Francis Durfey of 1660 in York Co VA. I have worked on this line for 20 plus years now and am glad to finally talk to someone about Dr. Durphey's line. Email me as I would love to share info with you. How are you related?
