This is a long read however, very interesting as it is testimony of Joe Tesson, Margaret Murphy and Solomon/Murphy kids and others regarding their indian heritage. The attorney for the Murphys was well known pioneer lawyer & Judge Isham Reavis. I found the connection in a Nebraska History Magazine back issue Spring 1973 where Mr. Reavis accounts his traveling from St. Louis with none other than Joseph Tesson, well known to the older residents in & about Falls City and Rulo. Probably one of the reason he represented the Murphy family.
