Later SC records do not mention an Ulrick or John Ulrick Morff, and the child may not have survived to maturity. If Felix and Margaret Morff had additional children, they were not baptized at the Orangeburgh church.

*     The Humble Petition of Barbara Morf (Hindermeister, per 22 Jul 1749 marriage records in Illnau) was read setting forth That your Pet’r came in the Ship Greenwich, Capt. Randolph, on the Encouragement given to foreign Protestants, that her husband is Sick in the Town and not able to attend, is desirous of settling in Orangeburgh Township, prays to run out 100 acres of Land in Orangeburgh Township and that he may have the Bounty of Provision.

Since petitions were required prior to the issuance of a land warrant, the absence of a petition must be due to the oversight of a clerk who skipped over petitions from two same-named persons. The size of the grant indicates a family of 10 persons.]

In Saxegotha (Berkeley County): Jacob Murph, private in Captain Christian House's company of Orangeburgh (Loyalist) militia, paid Nov. 1781. [Note: other members of the company include residents of southeastern Saxegotha from Savannah Hunt Creek through Beaver Creek, e.g., John Jacob Geiger, Andrew Kaigler, John Rester/Reister, Henry Caver (killed during service), Conrad Kersh, Jacob Sayler, etc. Residents of Amelia Township were enlisted in a different company. That identifies this Jacob as the son of Jacob Morf of Saxegotha and brother of John.]

South Carolina Temperance Advocate, May 26, 1842:
State of South Carolina. In the Court of Ordinary, Lexington District. Margaret Sightler, applicant, vs Frederick Murph, and Elizabeth Geiger, Deft's. Real Estate of John Murph, deceased. It appeared that Frederick Murph, one of the defendants, resides out of the limits of this State…. A.H. Fort, Ordinary of Lexington District, April 4th, 1842. [This appears to be a petition for partition of the estate of John Murph (son of John of Saxegotha) by the three siblings who were heirs to his property; John had died without issue.] The court ordered the lands sold, mentioning 700 acres of John Murph adjoining the estate of Robert Seawright, Caver and others. Note that this was the same location west of Beaver Creek as lands purchased by Jacob Murph (brother to John Murph Sr., father of the John who died in 1842); the land was sold to David Wannamaker in Jan 1843 [Lexington Co Deed Book N, pp. 35-37].

Brent H. Holcomb, Records from Burnt Counties, SCMAR:
Richland District SC, April 4, 1818: A transfer of 150 acres originally granted to John Walen Rebster by Morris Oheron, Catharine Oheron, John Murph Jr., Margaret Murph [a different transcriber, Theresa A. Hicks, reports her name as Catherine], and Adam Bowers to Jacob Bowers of Lexington District SC. The land was on Beaver Creek adjacent to William Seawright. Signed by: Mores Ohearen [sic: Morris O'Hearn], Cathrine Ohearen, John Murph, Jr., and Adam Bowers. Witnessed by Henry Caver, Sr. & George Murph (Lexington District SC). The land in question appears to be that purchased in 1785 by Jacob Murph, because it was adjacent to Wm. Seawright (the northern half of the Rapscher grant). The southern half of the grant, purchased by George Wachter, was adjacent to Wachter's own grant and to James McGowen, but not to William Seawright. The Jacob Murph half of the Rapsher grant became the property of David Bowers, who married Catherine Dubose (daughter and administratrix of Peter Dubose III, d. 1810 in Richland Co SC). David Bowers died Jul 1812; his only child died in 1814, which made his siblings heirs to 1/2 of his estate. Catherine Dubose Bowers second-married Morris O'Hearn prior to being named administratrix of her late husband David Bowers. Margaret/Catherine Bowers married a John Murph Jr. John Murph's son John was born in 1773; Jacob Murph's son John was born in 1781. The “Jr.” one, as of 1818, was John, son of Jacob. Witness George Murph and co-seller John Murph “Jr.” appear to be brothers, and sons of Jacob Murph (b. 1746).

[1842 epitaph of child of John Murff (of Saxegotha):
Sandy Run Lutheran Cemetery (currently in Calhoun Co SC): “To the memory of John Murff Who died March 14 A.D. 1842 in the 67th year of his age. In him the needy always found relief.”

1856 Epitaph of child of John Murff (of Saxegotha):
"Sacred to the blessed memory of Margaret Sitler, Daughter of John and Ann E. Murff. She was born April 1, 1771, and was married to Henry Sitler, 3rd of May, 1791, and they had 11 children, and she died 13th October, 1856; In her the needy ever found the helping friend.”

[Note: Rudolph Theiler, married to Elizabeth by 1758, was named as executor of the will of Christian Koller in 1764; he left no legal records after that, until mentioned in the 1772 will of his father Jacob Theiler as having died. The first wife of John Murff, Susannah, is not referenced after a deed and a Memorial, both in 1764. Margaret Murff Sitler died at age 85. Her siblings John and Elizabeth had died earlier; brother Frederick left SC before 1820. In 1856, the German name-usages were no longer in practice. If Margaret Sitler's son John (b. 1793), with whom she resided, recalled the name of her mother as "Ann Elizabeth", the current practice would suggest that she had been known as "Ann E." In 18th-century SC, a German-speaking woman named Anna Elsbetha was known as Elizabeth, as all references to the widow of John Murff call her. One tradition, repeated in a DAR application of the early 20th century, asserts that the surname of Elizabeth was Kaigler, and that she was the daughter of Andrew Kaigler. Kaigler had no children when he arrived in SC in 1752 (per his petition for land), so he was not the father of the Elizabeth who was married to Rudolph Theiler by 1758, when they witnessed a baptism at Orangeburgh Church.]

Children of Jacob Murph, b. 1746:
The name of Jacob's wife is undocumented; they had 5 sons and 4 daughters by 1790. They relocated to Lincoln Co GA in/by 1815. Two sons were resident in Jacob Murph's household in Lincoln Co in 1820, and a married daughter had accompanied them there.

1. Henry Murph reported his age as 77 in the 1850 census of Richmond Co GA; a birthyear of 1773 is a plausible estimate, and agrees with the 50<60 age category he reported in Lexington Co SC in 1830. His gravestone implies a birth in 1765; the obituary, a birth in 1767. The latter two over-estimated his age. Henry Murph married Nancy, who was apparently the daughter of William Kelly. Lexington Co SC Deed Book M, pp. 637-9: Henry Murph & wife Nancy of Lexington District., for $137 pd. by Daniel Cromer of same...78 acres, part of 670 acres granted to William Kelly, and conveyed by sd.

Rec. 2 Jan 1843. Delivered to Daniel Cromer, 10 Jan 1843.
Marriages and Death Notices from the Southern Christian Advocate 1861-1867, Rev. Silas Emmett Lucas, Jr., 1980: p. 209, issue of 13 Jul 1866: “Henry Murph died at his brother's in Houston Co., GA on the 26th Jul at the advanced age of 94 years..a native of Lexington, SC but lived in GA about 30 years.” Henry Murph was buried at the Marshallville cemetery (Macon Co GA) adjacent to his brother Conrad. His gravestone says:
Henry Murph
Died 1861
Age 96 yrs.

2. Catherine Murph married John Caver in Apr 1798, per family Bible of their son Joel Caver. John Caver's father, Henry Caver, lived on Beaver Creek adjacent to Jacob Murph; Henry Caver and Jacob Murph were fellow soldiers in the lower Saxegotha-based Loyalist company of Capt. Christian House, under Col. John Fisher of the Orangeburgh Regiment of Militia. Henry Caver was killed in service during June-December 1780, as was Capt. House. Members of the Caver family moved to Lincoln Co GA with Jacob Murph and family. Catherine (Murph) Caver was widowed at the time of the 1820 census.

3. John Murph (b. ~1781, per 1850 census) married Margaret Bowers, a neighbor on Beaver Creek, by 1818. In 1830, John headed a household in Lincoln Co GA; three younger males lived in the home of Jacob Murph Sr.

4. Jacob Murph Jr. (b. ~1782, per 1850 census) purchased land from his father in Lincoln Co GA in 1815. Jacob Murph (transcribed as Murphy) married Elizabeth Mosely in Lincoln Co on 24 Sep 1831. Her name was recorded as Liza A. Murph on the 1850 census.

5. Conrad Murph was born in 1786. His first wife was Mary Ann Evans, daughter of Richard Evans (Richland Co will 30 Jun 1814, proven 8 Oct 1814). She was the widow of Gale Hampton (Richland Co will signed 7 Jul 1812, proven 16 Jul 1812). Conrad and Mary Ann Evans Hampton Murph were guardians of the Hampton children by 15 Mar 1818 (Richland Equity Roll 93). The minor children for whom Conrad Murph presented accounts were Rebecca, John Jefferson, Gale and James G. Hampton. He moved to Houston (later Macon) Co GA in 1835. Mary Ann Evans Hampton Murph died before 1840, leaving Conrad a widow with 3 daughters at home. He second married Mary Ann Royal (28 Dec 1806 – 23 Mar 1851), daughter of John Royal and Rebecca Goodbee of Burke Co GA. She was the recent widow of John Turner Moore. The marriage reportedly took place on 1 Jan 1845. They had two sons, Ignatious (“Nash”) and John/Johnny.
Marriage and Death Notices from the Southern Christian Advocate, 1867-1878: “Conrad Murph was born in South Carolina, February 6th, 1786, and died at the residence of his son-in-law B.T. Moore in Houston County, Georgia, December 26th, 1874.” [The son-in-law was Bennings T. Moore, b. 1831 GA, married to Susan S., b. 1825 in SC.]

Conrad Murph was buried at the Marshallville (Macon Co GA) cemetery adjacent to his brother Henry. His gravestone says:
Conrad Murph
Died 24 December 1874
Age 89 yrs.

The Murph section of the Marshallville cemetery includes the graves of Dr. William Hafer (1821-1878) and his children by Arabella Murph, daughter of Conrad and Mary Ann Hampton Murph. The unmarked adult grave adjacent to Dr. Hafer is presumed to be that of Arabella. In 1900, she was age 75 and lived in Macon Co GA in the household of her son Hubert H. Hafer.

6. George Murph, born 1790, married Mary Marshall in Richland Co SC. She was the daughter of William Marshall and widow of Willis Prescott. Mary Prescott, with brother John Marshall and brother-in-law Benjamin Prescott, was appointed administratrix of the Willis Prescott estate on 28 Nov 1810 (Richland Co File 67-1527). George Murph was, coincidentally, the proving witness for the 1815 Richland Co will of Aaron Prescott (will proven 19 Jan 1816), father of the late Willis. George Murph married Mary Marshall Prescott prior to 25 Jan 1816, when he was named as guardian of Mary's minor children (Aaron, Elizabeth, Willis and William Marshall Prescott); his brother Conrad Murph was bondsman.

Marriage and Death Notices from the Southern Christian Advocate: “Sister Mary Murph died at Midway, near Milledgeville, GA, February 5th, 1868, aged 83 years and a few days. She was born in South Carolina February 1, 1785, joined the M.E. Church when 18 years old. She had buried two husbands, the last George Murph, in 1856..”

George Murph (3 Sep 1790 – 30 Mar 1856) was buried adjacent to his wife Mary (Marshall Prescott) Murph (1 Feb 1785 – 5 Feb 1868) in Memory Hill Cemetery, Milledgeville, Baldwin Co GA.

II. Morf households of Orangeburgh/Amelia Townships:

1. Hans Ulrich Morf married Barbara Hintermeister in Illnau parish on 15 Apr 1749. His father Hans Morf was the deceased Wachtmeister (Serjeant Major), son of Hansen Morf. Barbara was born 21 Feb 1730 in Effretikon to Jakob and Elisabeth Morf Hintermeister. Hans Ulrich had brothers named Jakob and Hans. He died shortly after arrival in SC; his land was incorrectly surveyed in the name of Conrad Morf. Widow Barbara Hintermeister Morf married Henry Whetstone (Heinrich Wettstein/Wezstein) in Orangeburgh Church on 24 Dec 1750. Henry Whetstone was also from parish Illnau, a resident of the village Kemleten.

2. Felix Morf, age 20, married Margaretha Hess, age 24, in Illnau parish on 22 Jul 1749. Both were from the village of Rikon. The parents of Felix Morf were not named; he had a father, a stepmother, and two sisters, plus a brother and three sisters by his father's second marriage. Margaretha was born 7 Nov 1723 to Jakob and Verena Moos Hess. Felix and Margaretha Hess Morf had a son Hans Ulrich in Orangeburgh Township on 3 Nov 1751. An Ulrich Morf does not appear in later SC records.

3. Jakob Morf was from Rikon in parish Illnau. He had a wife and one child with him when he arrived in SC, per his land petition. The child received a half-bounty, so was age 2<12 in Jan 1749/50. A Rudolph Murph (transcribed as Marsh) was a member of Capt. Lewis Golsan's Orangeburgh company under Col. John Chevillette in the Cherokee War, Oct. 1759 – Jan 1760, so was at least age 16 at that time. Rudolph Morf also witnessed (by mark) a 1762 land sale by Jacob Morf, laborer, to Valentine Shoemaker (the land involved was Jacob's initial 150-acre land grant on Pope Spring's Creek of Four Holes Swamp, adjacent to that of Felix Morf). Rudolph Morf was Swiss-born, and the Jacob Morf household was the only one in Orangeburgh Township that arrived with a child. A search of the parish records of Illnau identified no son Rudolph born to a father named Jacob in Rikon between 1737 and 1747. Birth in another village or parish is a possibility. The lack of identification of a birth date, parents, or spouse for this Jacob Morf in Illnau leaves open the question of a son—or other young relative--named Rudolph. Jacob Morf's unnamed wife died very soon after arrival. He married Christina Hessy (daughter of George Hessy) in the Orangeburgh Church on 5 Jun 1750.

The first generation of Morf/Murph children born in Orangeburgh or Amelia Townships of SC in ~1750-75, as opposed to Saxegotha Township, were necessarily the children of Felix Morf, Jacob Morf, or Rudolph Morf.
Meeting of Tuesday 29 September 1772:
Rudy Murth     150     In South Carolina
[Plat 3 Oct 1772, Saint Matthews Parish, Four Hole Swamp, adj. Murph [sic: Henry] Whetstone, Jacob Murph, John Nashler [Neyseller], Conrad Kysel; grant 24 Dec 1772; Memorial 24 May 1773. [The 150-acre petition implies one dependent, in this case, his wife Anna Barbara Neysheller, born 3 Apr 1744 in Wannweil, Amt Reutlingen, Baden-Württemberg, to Hans Neuscheler.]

Jacob Murth     100     
[Plat 9 Sep 1772, Saint Matthews Parish, Four Hole Swamp, adj. Gasper Brown, John Nashler; see petition to certify on 4 May 1773 below.]
[Note: these petitions are adjacent, should imply that Rudy has a wife (Anna Barbara Neysheller, Bounty petition of 100 acres on 2 Oct 1764, surveyed in Amelia TWP adj. Johannes Neeshell [sic: her father]) and that Jacob is single; plats in Amelia Township were adjacent. The petitions of Rudy and Jacob Murph were not for Bounty grants, so these men were presumably not born in Europe. However, Rudolf Morf witnessed a deed in March 1762 for Jacob Morf of Orangeburgh/Amelia TWP, so could not have been born after the Morf families arrived in SC in 1749. It is possible that this particular Jacob Murph was a single head-of-household, a son of Jacob or Felix. It is also possible that this petition was from the older Jacob Morf (with grant on Pope Spring Creek of the Four Holes in adjacent Orangeburgh TWP, which land he sold in 1762), and he had a headright of 100 acres on the basis of 2 additional dependents—one being his wife Christiana Hessy. At any rate, there was definitely a younger Jacob Murph, and one who lived in this particular location. He relocated to Mecklenburg/Cabarrus Co NC along with John Nicholas Neysheller/Nashler (b. 1740, brother of the Anna Barbara who married Rudolph Murph). In 1798, Jacob of Cabarrus Co NC named a son Rudolph Murph. The reason for the move may have been related to the 1768 move of the Rev. Samuel Suther, a Swiss Reformed minister, from Amelia Township SC to Mecklenburg Co NC (section that became Cabarrus Co in 1792). His NC churches included Dutch Buffalo Creek, located in the section of Cabarrus Co where John Nicholas Niceler and Jacob Murph settled adjacent to one another. The simplest hypothesis is that the adjacent 1772 plats were for brothers, Swiss-born Rudolph and SC-born Jacob, sons of Jacob Morf of the 1750 Pope Spring Creek (Orangeburgh Township) grant.

These Amelia TWP grants were near the earlier 1750 grants on Pope Spring Creek of Four Hole Swamp. They were located between Fleabite Creek and Bay Branch, eastern tributaries of Four Hole Swamp just upstream from Pope Spring Creek. They were nearer the head than the mouth of the creeks, so located within Amelia TWP rather than Orangeburgh TWP, but still near the township boundary.

III. John Murff of Fairfield Co SC:

p. 22, Meeting of Tuesday 7 May 1771: John Mourff     100 [acres]
[Plat for John Maurff, 100 acres on Little River, Craven County, 8 Jun 1771, grant to John Mourff, 14 Sep 1771, Memorial by John Mourff 22 Oct 1771. [This is the John Murff of Fairfield County who married Sophia Kinsler on 19 Aug 1775. The 100 acres, for a single head-of-household, was not a Bounty grant.] Holcomb, Petitions for Land, Vol. VII, p. 22.

The parents of John Murff of Fairfield Co SC have not been documented. Brothers John and Jacob Morf/Murph of Saxegotha TWP each named a son John, but their Johns were born ~1770, and both were alive long after 1789. The 3 Morf adults in Orangeburgh and Amelia TWP were Felix, Jacob and Rudolph. Rudolph's son John was alive after 1800. The parents of John Murff, d. 1789, were therefore either Felix and Margaret Hess Morf or Jacob and Christiana Hessy Morf. John Murff named a son Jacob, but had no descendants named Felix.

Sophia Kinsler, b. ~1758, was the daughter of Herman Kinsler (b. ~1739 in Saxegotha/ Lexington Co SC; d. 9 Apr 1783 in Camden District/ Richland Co SC) and Elizabeth.

Family of John Murff , who married Sophia Kinsler on 19 Aug 1775:
1. Samuel Murff, b. 21 Dec 1776; d. 22 Nov 1860 in Winston Co MS; m. Sarah Frazier on 16 Sep 1798.
2. John Murff, b. 27 Aug 1777; d. 23 Jan 1798 (Sophia signed for his share of estate).
3. Daniel Murff, b. 3 Aug 1780; d. 1834 in Perry Co AL; m. Nancy Boney.
4. Jacob Murff, b. 1 Mar 1783; d. 1 May 1862 in Perry Co AL; m. Nancy Frazier.
5. Nancy Murff, b. 3 Sep 1785; m. Jacob Boney by 1807.

Estate of John Murff inventoried in Fairfield Co SC on 31 Aug 1789. Administrators were Herman Kinsler and Jacob Turnipseed. [Jacob Turnipseed lived on the Richland Co side of the Little River.]

Henry Gallman from Zürich) was married to a Casper Faust by 1776. Casper Faust Jr. (1760-1815) was too young for marriage by 1776, so Elizabeth Gallman was probably the second wife of Casper Faust Sr. Gasper Coon/Kuhn was born in parish Illnau, Zürich, and had arrived with the Morf families, settled first adjacent to land granted to “Conrad” Morf (whose name was Ulrich--he died shortly after arrival) in Orangeburgh Township before moving to the Richland Co region along the Broad River.]

Obituary*6 Feb 2011 KILL DEVIL HILLS - Trilby Elisabeth Parker Culpepper, better known as "Jake" to family and friends, passed away peacefully at home Friday, Jan. 4, 2011. Jake was born and raised in Chesapeake, a graduate of South Norfolk High School and attended The College of William and Mary.
     Preceding her in death are her parents, James H. Parker and Sadie McGlaughan Parker; her husband of 32 years, William E. Culpepper who was also her dearest friend; her sons, William Craig Culpepper and Michael H. Culpepper; and her brother, James H. "Buddy" Parker.
     She will be dearly missed by her precious daughter, Terri Southerland of the Kill Devil Hills residence; and her grandchildren whom she adored, Andrea E. Southerland of Nags Head and J. Austin Southerland of Edenton; her sister, Roma Jean Cathcart of Ocala, Fla; her niece, Karen Hamer of Ocala; and nephew, Carl F. Cathcart of New Jersey; their children and spouses; and her newest addition and most precious great-grandson, Gabriel Quinn Southerland.
     Jake will be sorely missed by her family and friends. Jake was a loving, caring person. She was an avid reader and loved bridge and her bridge friends of more than 20 years. Jake and her husband were the first to begin the "Compassionate Friends" for families who have lost children to death. She was the president for three years, stepping down when Jake and Bill moved to Florida. Jake was an accountant for 34 years and sincerely loved her work. She was also a born designer and helped her friends in this endeavor. Jake enjoyed life and put her all into living it. Three friends and family members were treasured for their love they were enjoyed from among many. They are the late Dorothy Gupton of Georgia, Merilene Pacuilli of Chesapeake - an angel on earth, and from Virginia Beach, Linda Barclay-you're still a class act.
     The family will hold a celebration of life service at a date in the near future. In accordance with Jake's final wishes, her cremated remains will be placed in the Atlantic Ocean of her beloved Outer Banks. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial tributes be forwarded to the Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters and/or to the Joy Fund of Virginia. Condolences to the family may be expressed via the online register at www.gallopfuneralservices.com. Gallop Funeral Services Inc. was entrusted with arrangements.1 
Burial* Her body was interred at In the Atlantic Ocean off the Outer Banks, North Carolina.1
