      Lewis Fletcher Murphy, b ca 1800 Bedford Co. VA; married Cyrene Congleton on 27 Dec 1823 (marriage license date) in Jackson Co. IN and, Rachel Wells on 12 Dec 1832 (marriage license date) in Jackson Co. IN. In the 1840 Census of Jackson Co, Lewis F. Murphy (age 30-40) apparently has a wife (age 20 to 30) and one daughter 5 and under ten which could be from either marriage though more probably the marriage to Rachel. Since a Rachel Murphy applied for a marriage license in Jackson County in 1842 and again in 1843, apparently Lewis Fletcher Murphy was dead by that time.

      (2) A household headed by Lewis F. MURPHY is listed in the 1840 census of Jackson County, IN.

      Listed in Lewis F.'s household in the 1840 census are 1 free white male between 30 and 40 years of age; 1 free white female between 5 and 10 years of age; and 1 free white female between 20 and 30 years of age.

      Since only one male is listed in Lewis F.'s household in the 1840 census, he must be the free white male listed in the 1840 census as then being between 30 and 40 years of age. He was born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1840 census.

      Assuming that Lewis F.'s wife is the free white female listed in the 1840 census as then being between 20 and 30 years of age, she would have been born between 1810 and 1820, according to the 1840 census.

      Assuming that the other person listed in Lewis' household in the 1840 census is a child of Lewis F. and/or his wife, that child would have been a daughter who would have been born between1830 and 1835, according to the 1840 census.
