     Hi. My name is Patricia Lee Murphy Minch, and I am a GGGG-Granddaughter of Isaac Murphy of St. Johns, Missouri. Until this evening, all I had for the name of his wife was "Nancy," but now I have almost more information than I can handle regarding the Todd family tree. However, there seems to be very little regarding Isaac himself. The information I have is derived from extensive genealogy that my mother, Lillian Murphy, did back in the 1970's, and I'm just now trying to dig into those materials and understand what they are all about. For the moment, here is some further information about Isaac Murphy that is accurate. He and Nancy Todd were married in late 1814 or early 1815, probably in St. Louis Township. They had three children:
     Isaiah T. Murphy, b. 1815
     Elijah W. Murphy, b. 1817
     Mary Ann Murphy, b. 1819/20
     Following their marriage, they bought land on the banks of the Missouri River, at St. Johns, a small settlement that would later become the town of Washington, Missouri. There Isaac operated a ferry from his land holdings, known as Mount Vernon, to a tiny settlement upriver known as La Charette. Isaac owned at least five slaves, farmed and was appointed first circuit court clerk in Franklin County, Missouri, in 1819. He served as a lieutenant in the 2nd Company, 2nd Battalion, 2nd Regiment, of the Missouri Territorial Militia, and, in addition, at some point taught school in St. Johns. As a side note, the area of La Charette, on the other side of the Missouri, served by Isaac's ferry, was the final home of Daniel Boone, who lived there the last 20 or so years of his life. Inasmuch as La Charette consisted of fewer than a dozen log buildings, it's highly likely that Isaac hauled Daniel Boone and his family back and forth across the river to St. Johns from time to time. Of course, this is just speculation. Daniel Boone died there in 1820, an old man in his eighties, and Isaac himself died only five months later, in January of 1921, at age 41.1

WASHINGTON: ITS FERRIES AND STEAMBOATS
"Before steamboats, the travel of man on the Missouri River was by swimming or by rafts, canoes, skiffs and larger boats, man-powered, but sometimes making use of a sail or sails. After settlement on both sides of the lower river, getting across the big river was often a problem and ferries were made to solve it.
"Between the early settlements of La Charette and St. John's a licensed ferry was established in 1814. Early court records of St. Louis, St. Charles and Franklin counties mention the ferries of Daugherty, Murphy, Hart, Caldwell, Smith and Owens. All these ferries were in business before Washington was officially founded, but not at the same time. These ferries had landings near the mouth of St. John's creek. The river was wide there and had several islands. The islands grew and came and went. Landings too were changed by the river. Stable landing places were needed and a good one was found below the mouth of St. John's creek and it was named Washington.
"The ferry of Isaac Murphy in 1815 consisted of two large canoes with a platform on top, which had to be oared and poled across. Later, two or more men cranked a paddle wheel attached to such a ferry boat. In 1843, at Washington, Henry Wellenkamp said, a horse-powered ferry was in operation. Andrew Cochran and Joseph R. Hardin owned the ferry then and were licensed by the city. They received their first license from the city in September, 1841. Before 1841, licenses for the ferry at Washington were issued by the county. Andrew Cochran and Joseph R. Hardin were two of the first officials of the city, both had general stores, and Hardin taught school. They became so busy with the ferry and other work they quit storekeeping. They continued the ferry business until 1850, when J.F. Dierking received the license to ferry at Washington."
[The "Hart" listed among early ferry operators would be Armstrong Hart, second husband of Nancy (Todd) Murphy, widow of Isaac Murphy, and his position as a ferry operator was by way of his wife's ownership of the ferry following the death of Isaac Murphy. Interestingly, Joseph R. Hardin, another early ferry operator, was the husband of Isaac and Nancy (Todd) Murphy's only daughter, Mary Ann. It is also probable that the Caldwell mentioned as another early ferry operator was Kinkead Caldwell, who was reputed to have been the first white settler in the Washington area.]8

Isaac Murphy
Posted by Patricia Minch on Ancestry on 21 May 2008: The Life of Isaac Murphy (1779-1821)
     "Isaac Murphy was born around 1779, during the Revolutionary War, most likely in Bedford Co., Virginia, although he may also have been born in Washington County in extreme western North Carolina, the area which later became the eastern counties of Tennessee. His father, Reverend William, was moving often at this time, preaching in surrounding counties in Virginia and North Carolina, and Reverend William's exact whereabouts at all times cannot be pinpointed. It would seem logical that Sarah and their children remained behind in Virginia while William was gone for short periods, but there is no definite birth record for Isaac. However, when he was very young, the family moved permanently to the area of the Holston River, some few miles east of present-day Morristown, Tennessee, where William obtained a large tract of land and built a substantial log home. Here Isaac spent his youth while his father was busy "planting" new Baptist churches and building congregations among the new settlers. His mother Sarah was well educated for a woman of the day, and she saw to it that all of her children were educated, as well, and received a solid religious foundation, there being no form of public schooling in this frontier area. Davy Crockett grew up nearby, and other early frontiersmen frequently passed through eastern Tennessee; it is likely young Isaac heard many a tale of adventure, whetting his own appetite for new experiences.
     "By the late 1790s, Reverend William, Isaac's father, apparently motivated by some discord within his church hierarchy, decided to move on. At that time Spain owned the vast territory west of the Mississippi River and was anxious to encourage settlement of what it called "Upper Louisiana." The Spanish government was offering 640 acres to any American male who would come to the territory, settle permanently and plant crops. In 1798 Reverend William, two younger sons from his first marriage (William and Joseph), his oldest son from his second marriage (David) and a friend, Silas George, set out to locate claims on this new frontier. The five men were returning to Tennessee for their families and traveled by way of Barren County, Kentucky, where Reverend William's oldest son, John, had settled. While visiting there, Reverend William preached at a boisterous revival meeting and shortly afterward apparently suffered a massive heart attack and died. Silas George also died on the return trip. To perfect their new claims, William and Joseph took their families to "Upper Louisiana" around 1800, and David would follow some years later. Reverend William's widow, Sarah, also determined to complete the move. She sent another of her sons, Richard, with William and Joseph and gave him instructions to build a sturdy log home for her and the remaining children on Reverend William's claim and to plant a crop. They would follow as soon as Sarah could wind up her deceased husband's estate and dispose of their Tennessee property.
     "In 1803, Isaac, then in his early twenties, accompanied his mother Sarah, two brothers (Dubart and Jesse), a nephew (William Evans, the son of his deceased sister, Sarah Murphy Evans), several slaves, and a hired man on the 1,000-mile journey to their new home. The group traveled by flat boat down the Holston River to the Tennessee, nearly the entire length of the Tennessee River to the Ohio, down the Ohio River for a short distance to its confluence with the Mississippi and then poled north up the Mississippi River to St. Genevieve. Most of their river travel was done by night, while they concealed themselves under overhanging trees and brush during the day to avoid detection by hostile Indians. When they finally reached St. Genevieve, they were given a boisterous welcome by William, Joseph and Richard and their families. They then traveled inland some 25 miles to reach their new home. Together the large Murphy extended family founded a new community. It was first called Murphy's Settlement, and two decades later, after becoming part of the United States via the Louisiana Purchase in 1803) became Farmington, St. François County, Missouri. Isaac worked alongside the other men to cut house logs, make rails for fencing and build the rough infrastructure required in the new community. He owned several parcels of land around Murphy's Settlement but did not marry during this period.
     "Isaac Murphy served as an Ensign in the 5th Regiment of the Missouri Territorial Militia during the War of 1812, and in August 1814 Governor Clark of the territory appointed him a Lieutenant in the 2nd Regiment of that organization. Stephen F. Austin served as an ensign in the same regiments, the same Stephen F. Austin who would ten years later lead the first 300 American families to settle in Texas. Isaac was discharged at St. Louis at the end of the war. Evidently reluctant to return to Murphy's Settlement, where life had become a predictable routine and where his opportunities were limited, Isaac then sold his property there and returned to St. Louis.
     "The records of the John Colter estate in St. Louis reveal Isaac was working in early 1814 as a deputy clerk in the office of the Circuit Court of St. Louis County. He apparently tired of this desk job, however, and went looking for more adventure. He moved some 40 miles westward up the Missouri River, then very much the frontier. Another very early settler in the area was a man by the name of Isaiah Todd, from Kentucky, who had a sister named Nancy, who soon caught Isaac's eye and put an end to his long bachelorhood. Isaac and Nancy Todd were married in late 1814 or early 1815 in what was then St. Louis County but became Franklin County in 1818. No actual record has been found of this marriage, there being no requirement at this early date that such events be registered with any civil authority. Their first son, Isaiah Todd Murphy, was born in November 1815 (to be followed by another son, Elijah Wesley Murphy, in 1817 and by a daughter, Mary Ann Murphy, in early 1821).
     "Isaac then rented or leased a 200-acre parcel of land along the banks of the Missouri River, very near Isaiah Todd and his family. That land was part of another Spanish land grant originally made to one John Long, and in April of 1816 Isaac entered into an agreement with Mr. Long to buy the property, the purchase conditioned upon title eventually being cleared by the United States government.
     " (Abstract of Franklin Co., MO, Deed Records, Book A, p. 12: "St. Louis County, Missouri Territory, April 21, 1816 - Articles of Agreement between John Long of one part and Isaac Murphy of the other part, both of the county and the territory. John Long has given into possession of Isaac Murphy a certain tract or parcel of land lying on the Missouri River, containing 200 acres, English measure, running as follows: beginning at the mouth of St. Johns Creek, thence down the Missouri River so far that a tract of 200 acres shall be in an oblong form up and down the river Missouri, said land now claimed by John Long and unconfirmed by the United States, deed to be made provided United States confirms his present claim. Isaac Murphy agrees to pay to John Long $2.00 per acre from the 1st day of March 1815, provided said Long shall make a right as above specified.")
     "Isaac named his new homestead Mt. Vernon. He began to farm and also ran a ferry, although the ferry may have been operational before Isaac took over the property. This ferry was described as a "crank ferry" and operated from Mt. Vernon across the Missouri River to a small French village called La Charette. The ferry consisted of two hollowed-out canoes topped by a wooden platform and powered by a hand-operated paddle wheel mounted between the canoes at the rear. Only a couple of miles from La Charette was the land where Daniel Boone spent his final years, and in at least one of his biographies, it is stated that Daniel liked to cross the river and hunt on the south side. It may well be that Daniel crossed the Missouri River on Isaac's ferry from time to time, and the two may have been acquainted.
     " Two years later, in 1818, Franklin County was formed from St. Louis County, and New Port, the small settlement which had grown up at the mouth of St. Johns Creek, where Isaac's property was located, became the first county seat. Isaac was appointed by the Territorial Governor as its first Circuit Court Clerk. He also taught school at one point, and he served as the community's first Postmaster from 1816, when mail service from St. Louis was first established, until 1819.
     "Isaac owned several slaves, among them a slave named "Paul," inherited from the estate of his mother, Sarah (Barton) Murphy. Needing more help with his farm and ferry operations, Isaac then made an additional purchase in 1820. (Abstract of Franklin Co., MO, Deed Records, Book A, p. 95: "John Young of Montgomery County sells to Isaac Murphy of Franklin County, MO, one negro woman by the name of Eliza and negro boys by name of Solomon, Leander, Sanford and Joseph, said boys being sons of Eliza, for the amount of $853.50, due by note on 20 July 1820 and payable by the 1st day of June 1821. Dated 12 Sep 1820." It is not clear whether this additional purchase of slaves was ever completed in view of Isaac's untimely death, and there is no mention of them in his probate file.
     "In January of 1821, at the age of 41, Isaac died unexpectedly, his life of adventure cut short by an apparent heart attack. Isaac left no will. His widow Nancy and her brother Isaiah Todd were appointed by the Court in Franklin County to administer the estate, and at first Isaiah Todd was also appointed guardian of Isaac and Nancy's three minor children. Isaiah Todd was apparently somewhat lax in handling his responsibilities as guardian and failed to make timely reports to the Court regarding the children's assets and how they were being spent. He was relieved as guardian, and the Court then appointed one William Skinner to take over. Finally, when the oldest child, Isaiah, came of age, he assumed the guardianship of his two younger siblings. The estate was not finally settled until the early 1830s, when the youngest, Mary Ann, came of age.
     "Isaac Murphy's burial spot has long been a mystery. In the 1990s, however, Four Rivers Genealogical Society began surveying local cemeteries and in 1998 published "Cemeteries of Franklin County, Missouri, St. John's Township." That volume describes a very small family cemetery (only six headstones are listed) located in Section 8, Township 44 North, Range 1 West, and the authors have arbitrarily called it the "Todd Family Cemetery" because it contains the headstones of Isaiah Todd, his wife Prudence, and several of their children. The earliest of these headstones is that of 25-year-old Rosana Todd, daughter of Isaiah and Prudence, who died in 1833. In examining a detailed plat map of the area, this small cemetery is located near the point where St. Johns Creek at one time emptied into the Missouri River. The river later changed course and St. Johns Creek now empties into the Missouri about two miles farther east. Given the description of the 200 acres Isaac Murphy purchased from John Long in 1816 (Mount Vernon), it appears this small cemetery is located on that very property, and it is quite likely that Isaac himself was the first person buried there upon his death in 1821. Whatever grave marker may have been placed at that time is either completely gone or was illegible to those who surveyed the cemetery for the 1998 publication and so was not listed at all. Perhaps someone, sometime in the future, will take another look and may be able to confirm that this is indeed Isaac Murphy's final resting place."

All these ferries were in business before Washington was officially founded, but not at the same time. These ferries had landings near the mouth of St. John's creek. The river was wide there and had several islands. The islands grew and came and went. Landings too were changed by the river. Stable landing places were needed and a good one was found below the mouth of St. John's creek and it was named Washington.
"The ferry of Isaac Murphy in 1815 consisted of two large canoes with a platform on top, which had to be oared and poled across. Later, two or more men cranked a paddle wheel attached to such a ferry boat. In 1843, at Washington, Henry Wellenkamp said, a horse-powered ferry was in operation. Andrew Cochran and Joseph R. Hardin owned the ferry then and were licensed by the city. They received their first license from the city in September, 1841. Before 1841, licenses for the ferry at Washington were issued by the county. Andrew Cochran and Joseph R. Hardin were two of the first officials of the city, both had general stores, and Hardin taught school. They became so busy with the ferry and other work they quit storekeeping. They continued the ferry business until 1850, when J.F. Dierking received the license to ferry at Washington."
between 1814 and 1829 at Washington Township, Franklin Co., Missouri, USA.17

Isaac Murphy lived in 1816 at St. John's Township (now Washington), Franklin Co., Missouri, USA; Map and message posted on Ancestry.com by Patricia Minch on 4 March 2012: "Isaac Murphy's original land acquisition in Franklin County, the property known as Mt. Vernon, was located several miles upriver from the location identified on this map as the town of Washington. Mt. Vernon was situated where St. Johns Creek then emptied into the Missouri River, although the course of the river changed in subsequent years. Isaac purchased this 200-acre parcel from a Mr. Long, who had obtained it via a Spanish land grant before the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, and Isaac's purchase was conditional upon Long's claim to the land being upheld by the court of the United States, which it subsequently was. Mr. Long had operated a ferry from the property across the Missouri to the small village of La Charette, and Isaac continued operation of this ferry until his death. His widow, Nancy (Todd) Murphy continued to operate the ferry for many more years as her license renewal was noted each year in Franklin County records."1,18
Isaac Murphy was mentioned in a land transaction on 24 September 1821 at Franklin Co., Missouri, USA,

Note from Patricia Minch posted on Ancestry: " Preemption Land Rights: In payment for his services during the War of 1812, Isaac Murphy received preemption rights to 160 acres of land, this the result of an Act of Congress of 24 April 1820. Isaac immediately took steps to exercise this right and claimed a tract of land containing 159.36 acres, described as the NW fractional quarter of Section 16 in Twp. 44 of Range 1W in Franklin Co. This tract was apparently adjacent to his home place, Mount Vernon. He had apparently already deposited with the Land Office in St. Louis the required $2.00 per acre but had not actually received the Patent for the land at the time of his death in January of 1821. The Land Office records label this transaction as "Patent Record Imperfect," presumably because of his death, and it is assumed the money on deposit was then returned to Isaac's estate."19,20
Isaac Murphy was mentioned in a land transaction on 30 March 1826 at Franklin Co., Missouri, USA,
Memo: Message posted by Patricia Minch on 11 May 2008 on Ancestry: "30 March 1826, Franklin Co., MO
     The original of this land patent is in the hands of one of Isaac Murphy's descendants, who assumed it was the patent for Isaac Murphy's original property in Franklin County known as Mount Vernon. However, upon closer examination, this is not the case. Mount Vernon was located in what became Section 8, Township 44 North, Range 1 West, whereas this patent refers to a 160-acre parcel somewhat farther south, in Section 27, Township 43 North, Range 1 West. The patent is granted in the name of "The legal Heirs and Representatives of Isaac Murphy, deceased, Assignees of Isaiah Todd." A possible explanation for this patent may be that Isaiah Todd, as guardian of the Murphy children, illegally sold the original property and was then forced by the Court to purchase another quarter section of public land and assign it over to the Murphy children as a replacement."21
Isaac Murphy is mentioned in the will of Armstrong Hart on 26 November 1829 at Franklin Co., Missouri, USA; Franklin Co., MO, Will Book A, Pages 66-70:
In the name of God Amen I Armstrong Hart of the County of Franklin in the State of Missouri, being in a low state of health and knowing that it is appointed for all men once to die and believing it very probable that the disease under which I now labor will prove fatal, but feeling assured that my mind is unimpaired and that I now possess a disposing memory, I do make the following my last will and testament.

First: I wish that my body should receive at the hands of my friends and executors a decent burial.

Secondly: It is my wish that all my just debts be paid and for that purpose it is my will that my executors sell at private or public sale as they may find most expedient so much of my personal estate as will raise a sum sufficient to pay them. If, however, my executors should think it would be more to the advantage of my estate to pay my debts out of the rents that may be coming to me from the letting of my interest in the grist and saw mills which I now own, then it is my will that my debts be so paid and my personal property be disposed of as hereinafter mentioned. If my executors should settle my debts out of the rents of the mills, then it is my wish that my wife take and keep during her widowhood the whole of my personal estate to be by her used for the support and maintenance of the family, and if my executors should sell a part of my personal estate, then it is my will that the remaining part and the rents of my mills be given to my wife so long as she remains single to be used by her as aforesaid. It is my desire that my wife remain on the plantation where I now live and cultivate the farm, but if in her opinion and in the opinion of my executors it would be more to her interest that the farm and ferry should be leased, together with the negro man Paul, then it is my will that they be let out and the profits be given to my wife for the support of the family. My wife received out of the estate of Isaac Murphy at the appraised value the negro man named Paul that is now in the family. Whether by the laws of the country this negro is my property, I am not advised. If it should so turn out that he is not mine and those who have now or should hereafter have the management of said Isaac Murphy's estate should claim off of my estate the hire of said negro, then in that case I wish my executors to charge the estate of said Murphy with the raising and schooling of the heirs of said Murphy. If my wife should think proper to marry again, I wish for my executors then to dispose of all the personal property, after she has taken her share, and the amount raised by such sale and the hire of my negro girl Louisa and the rent of my mills to be then applied to the schooling and maintenance of my three sons, Albert, Epenetus and Joseph. After my three sons are raised and become of age, I will to them and my four daughters in New York, to wit, Maria, Eliza, Emmy and Susan Ann, my interest in the tract of land upon which my mills are built and my interest in those mills, my negro girl named Louisa and her increase, the negro man Paul (if he should be my property) and indeed all and every thing that may at that day be a part of my estate. It is my desire, however, that my girls should receive their shares of my estate at an earlier period than the time before mentioned, and if my executors after a lapse of some three or four years after my decease should be enabled to make an estimate of my estate and should find that it will [not] injure the estate to sell so much thereof as will pay them their shares, it is then my will it be so arranged.
I constitute and appoint Bennoni Sappington and William G. Owens executors to this my last will and testament. In testimony of all which I hereunto set my hand and seal the twenty-sixth of November in the year 1829.

Susan Riggs
"Susan Riggs married Armstrong Hart of Benton, a hatter. They removed to Farmington, NY where she died leaving four daughters, Mariah, Eliza, Emma and Susan A. Mr. Hart removed to Missouri, where he married a widow Murphy, and died leaving three sons, Albert J., Joseph F. and Epenetus. Maria married William Shattuck of Penn Yan, a lawyer, whose house and office stood on the present premises of B. W. Franklin. Shattuck was a Quaker, and he had a partner by the name of John Willey. He was one of the earliest lawyers in Penn Yan, and about 1825 moved to Prattsburg and thence to Warren county, Pennsylvania, where he engaged largely in land speculation. He was Lieutenant Colonel of the old 103d Regiment of Infantry, his commission bearing date June 3, 1820. This was no doubt before he became a Quaker. He now lives at Steamburg, Cattaraugus county. Their children were Sophia, Ann, Susan, John, Lydia, Emma, Philinda, Ellen, Clara and William. Eliza Hart married Dr. James Heermans of Milan, N.Y., long a noted citizen of Potter."

"Phillip Riggs, the father of the foregoing family, died in 1821 at the age of seventy-seven. His first wife was Polly Pierce, the mother of all his children. He was afterwards married four times: to Hetty Smith, widow Ingles, Polly Smith and widow Radley. His grand-daughter, Mrs. Orrin Shaw, daughter of Mary Patterson, relates that she had five grandmothers on the maternal side; and as her father's father had two wives, her husband's father two, and her husband a grandmother on the maternal side, she recognized ten grandmothers."

Phillip Riggs
from Wallace [1901:32]: "Philip Rigs6 (son of David,5 Edward,4 Edward,3 Edward,2 Edward1) was born in western Pennsylvania, 1744. He was a farmer and married Polly Pierce, who was the mother of all his children. He removed to Benton Centre, Yates County, N. Y., 1795. After his settlement there he lost his wife and married again; he lost the second alo and married again; and again and again, until he had lost and buried five wives. This remarkable succession of family misfortunes and the prmpt effort to restore the losses gave Philip the sobriquet of "The Widower from Pennsylvani." In 1821 he passed away himself in his sevety-seventh year, and was buried by the side of his wives. Local history speaks of the four sons and five daughters as "noted for their intelligence and popularity in Yates County." For these nine children we have neither order nor dates, but we can safely place them in the last quart of that century. Like many others of their immediate kindred, this family seems to have been prominent in the Baptist faith.

Phillip Riggs
Cleveland [1873], pp. 220-221 describes this family.8

Phillip Riggs
"Susan Riggs married Armstrong Hart of Benton, a hatter. They removed to Farmington, NY where she died leaving four daughters, Mariah, Eliza, Emma and Susan A. Mr. Hart removed to Missouri, where he married a widow Murphy, and died leaving three sons, Albert J., Joseph F. and Epenetus. Maria married William Shattuck of Penn Yan, a lawyer, whose house and office stood on the present premises of B. W. Franklin. Shattuck was a Quaker, and he had a partner by the name of John Willey. He was one of the earliest lawyers in Penn Yan, and about 1825 moved to Prattsburg and thence to Warren county, Pennsylvania, where he engaged largely in land speculation. He was Lieutenant Colonel of the old 103d Regiment of Infantry, his commission bearing date June 3, 1820. This was no doubt before he became a Quaker. He now lives at Steamburg, Cattaraugus county. Their children were Sophia, Ann, Susan, John, Lydia, Emma, Philinda, Ellen, Clara and William. Eliza Hart married Dr. James Heermans of Milan, N.Y., long a noted citizen of Potter."

"Phil lip Riggs, the father of the foregoing family, died in 1821 at the age of seventy-seven. His first wife was Polly Pierce, the mother of all his children. He was afterwards married four times: to Hetty Smith, widow Ingles, Polly Smith and widow Radley. His grand-daughter, Mrs. Orrin Shaw, daughter of Mary Patterson, relates that she had five grandmothers on the maternal side; and as her father's father had two wives, her husband's father two, and her husband a grandmother on the maternal side, she recognized ten grandmothers."
