JORDAN, MURPHREE posted by on Monday, July 27, 1998

I am searching for information on my great grandparents on my mother's side. Their names are Josie Annalee Jordan married to James Franklin Murphree. They married and lived in and around Waco, McLennon County, Texas. I need to know their parents names and I may be able to connect them to several Jordans or Murphrees I have found information on the web. I know they had 7 or 8 children. My grandmother was Bertha Izora born in 1900, she had triplet sisters, Faye, Maye, and Zaye, a twin brother and sister, I know the girl was Mary. She also had either 2 or 3 brothers, Dennis, and E. J. Murphree. There is so little known, and so much is buried. Please send any information as we want to know our family????? Thank you. I do know I have seen other information on a James Franklin Murphree, but he was born in the first of 1800 and I think his Dad was Daniel....
