I don't know a lot about the John A. Murph you mention, but I have located two of his sons; James R. and Jethro. James R. migrated to Grainger County, TN prior to the 1860 census. He is listed as "Murf" on both the 1860 and 1870 census. Jethro was living with James R. and his family in 1870. All of the family eventually returned to the original spelling, and many Murphs can still be found in that northeast section of TN. James R's occupation was listed as "master carpenter".
