Birth of Son1775 His son John Murff Jr. was born in 1775 at Orangeburg District, South Carolina.1 
Biography* A John Murff was living near Herman Geiger Jr. in 1775, as the following record from page 23 of South Carolina Memorials of Land Titles 1774-1776 shows: "John Allen, 28 Aug 1775, 121 acres on the South side of the Broad River. Bounded NW by Herman Geiger, NE by John Murff; SE on the Broad River (2-318:2).4 
Death*before 2 Aug 1790 He died at Orangeburg District, South Carolina, before 2 Aug 1790.1 
1790 Census*2 Aug 1790 He was enumerated in the US Census of 1790 on 2 Aug 1790 at Orangeburg District, South Carolina.
(The John Murff of Saxe-Gotha [Township] (now Richland County, SC) lived near Savannah Hunt Creek of the Congarees, in a region that was predominantly Loyalist. He was not listed in the extant muster rolls of either side. He died before the 1790 census, when widow Elizabeth was enumerated with the two sons (John and Frederick) and two daughters (Margaret and Elizabeth) of John Murff. Her son John Tyler (byRudolf Theiler) lived next door. The 3 males aged 16+ in his household may have included his brothers Jacob and Herman Theiler/Tyler.).5,1 
Research note*13 Mar 2011 From Harriet Imrey:
....
There were two different (Hans) Jacob Morfs who arrived on the ship Greenwich from parish Illnau, Zürich, in 1749. The Saxegotha-Jacob was the older one, his family on page 5 of the attached. Staatsarchiv Zürich has a firm policy of sending responses in German, although they accept questions in French or English as well. I do not read German, but genealogy reports are so standardized that I can usually interpret them. The natural order of events is birth, baptism, marriage and death, regardless of language...

At any rate, Johannes Morf was born in village Effretikon, parish Illnau, canton Zürich, on 24 Jan 1734 (Gregorian calendar used in Switzerland, so no need for double-dating).

Herman Geiger had a grant on the Broad River (lower Dutch Fork), and it was adjacent to the 500-acre patent for Hans Jacob Morf on 20 Apr 1752--after Geiger's death in 1751, but Herman never lived on it.... The Broad River land was left to John Morf per his father's will.

John (with no spouse) sold half of it on 10 & 11 Mar 1763 to Michael Moulbare (SC Deed Book E-3, p. 735). He sold the other half of it with first wife Susannah on 9 & 10 Apr 1764 to John Gottfrey (SC Deed Book E-3, p. 741).

He married second wife Ann Elizabeth (maiden name unknown), widow of Rudolf Theiler, prior to ~1770, because Elizabeth's daughter Margaret Murff was born 1 Apr 1771. The Margaret (Murff) Sitler tombstone was erected by her son John Sitler (b. 1793) in 1856. John Sitler recalled the names of his maternal grandparents as John and Ann E. Murff.

Percy Geiger inadvertently recorded the inscription on the tombstone as Ann D, but it is still legible as Ann E. The German name-usage was long extinct in 1856; John Sitler did not know that an Anna Elsbetha of the previous century was called "Elizabeth", not Anna or Ann E.

The four known children of John Murff were John, Margaret, Frederick and Elizabeth. John Jr. "may have" been a child of Susannah, but no evidence suggests that. The others were children of second wife Elizabeth.

The death of John Murff/Murph was reportedly at the Battle of Cowpens, which took place on 17 Jan 1781. This was asserted on DAR applications from 3 Bell sisters resident in Edgefield Co SC, beginning ~1900. There is at least a reasonable question about the reliability of the report.

The SC Accounts Audited and Stub Indent records (and all other Rev War sources) list a single John Murff with Revoluationary service. He was a member of the Orangeburgh/Amelia TWP branch of the Morf family, lived in Fairfield Co SC with wife Sophia Kinsler from their marriage in 1789. A descendant of his son Samuel (a Methodist minister) was admitted to DAR on John's service, Application #395859.

The DAR applications for descendants of John Murff of Saxegotha were submitted by Aileen Valentine Bell Malone (#50513), Rebecca Miles Bell Dennis (#50514), and Salome Bell Clotworthy (#50515). Their information, published in DAR Lineage Book 51 (1904), p. 233, was accurate for parents and grandparents. Their great-grandfather was accurately identified as "a" John Murff (with wife Elizabeth), but they apparently attached the service record of the John Murff of Fairfield Co. They used his birthdate (1750) and SC birthplace too. That Stub Indent entry listed service at Cowpens, but that John Murff (of Orangeburg and Fairfield Co) lost an arm, not his life.

Saxegotha-John lived near Savannah Hunt Creek of the Congarees, in a region that was predominantly Loyalist. He was not listed in the extant muster rolls of either side. He died before the 1790 census, when widow Elizabeth was enumerated with the two sons (John and Frederick) and two daughters (Margaret and Elizabeth) of John Murff. Her son John Tyler (byRudolf Theiler) lived next door. The 3 males aged 16+ in his household may have included his brothers Jacob and Herman Theiler/Tyler. I think that the best one can do re a death date for John Murff (b. 24 Jan 1734) is "reportedly killed at the Battle of Cowpens, per undocumented DAR application #50513" I don't know where the reference to Elizabeth's surname as Kaigler/Keigler may have originated, as used on the DAR application, but Kaigler was definitely not it! Andrew Keigler and his wife Anna Margaretha Leitner arrived in SC with no children in 1752. Elizabeth MNU was married to Rudolph Theiler by 1758. QED: she wasn't a Kaigler daughter--some colonial women may have married fairly early, but not prior to age 6.

    The following quote is from Guy F. Spearman, circa 1977:
    'About 1750, he rescued several friendly Indians from a band of hostile Canadian Indians who had captured them near Charleston, SC. The following summer, Herman, having set out for the Catawba Nation in company with a half-breed, was captured by several of the very party of Canadian Indians from whom he had rescued the friendly Indians a year before. They carried Herman Geiger toward the Great Lakes and finally killed him. "

    Harriet Imrey refutes this as follows:
    "Some sources--both online and in print--are still repeating the story that Indian agent Herman Geiger (1707-51) was kidnapped and killed by a tribe of northern Indians. Since that didn't happen, how did such a story get started? And why is it still around? Robert Meriwether explained it in "Expansion of South Carolina, 1729-1765" (published in 1940).

    In 1747, Indian agent George Haig of Saxegotha was kidnapped by a raiding party of the Nottaway band of Iroquois from New York. He was exhausted by the time they'd reached PA and refused to keep marching, so they killed him. This was reported in multiple sources: a letter from President Palmer of PA, the journal of Indian agent Conrad Weiser, the SC Council Journal, a letter from Haig's wife Elizabeth begging the government to intervene, and a notice of Haig's death in the SC Gazette on 14 Apr 1748.

    In 1775, James Adair published "History of the American Indians", in which he related the incident in detail. He used initials rather than names for the people he described, so the murdered trader was one "G.H." In 1859, John Logan included the Adair material in his "History of the Upper Country of South Carolina." In a moment of absent-mindedness (or dyslexia), he reversed the initials from G.H. to H.G., decided that the murdered trader must have been George Haig's successor Herman Geiger. Logan didn't bother to check his sources. In 1898, SC historian A.S. Salley Jr. published "The History of Orangeburg County". He borrowed the story from Logan (on pp. 233-4), but he didn't check his sources either. In fact, he included the real story--the death of trader George Haig--on pp. 231-2 in the same chapter, didn't notice that he'd assigned the same fate to two separate Saxegotha Indian traders at the same time."
