Hello Andy, Excuse the long delay in responding. I have indications of a Jacob Murph being in St Matthews Parish of South Carolina with his brother Rudolph (Rudy) as early as Sept 1772.(Brent Holcomb Petitions for land from the SC council, Vol VII, 1771-1774, page 147.) This Jacob Murph is not to be confused with Jacob Morf who arrived in Charleston on ship Greenwich in 1749 with a wife and child and who re-married Christina Hessy on 5 June 1750 in Orangeburg. The St Matthews Jacob Murph also shows up on "Jesse Hogan Motes III and Margaret Peckham Motes. South Carolina Memorials: Abstracts of Land Titles, Vol I: 1774-1776, Greenville, SC Southern Historical Press, Inc. 1996'
page 106 reads: "Jacob Murph, 1 Aug 1774: 100 acres in St. Matthews Parish. Bounded SW by Gaspere Browns and vacant lands; SE on John Nashler and vacant land; NW on Wise: NE vacant land. Survey certified 4 May 1773; granted 21 Apr 1774. Quit rent in 2 years. M.M. Farlan, DS, Delivered 11 Apr. 1775 to Rudy (R) Murph".
Note that Nashler/Nichler family also moved to NC (probably along with this Jacob Murph). For further info contact me at:
