* Simpson, Taft, McMurry, Murphy, and Patterson Families of KY*

Updated November 4, 2007

My family is from Central Kentucky. I am researching Simpson’s, Taft’s, Murphy, Patterson’s, Jones, and McMurry. My daughter Renee Simpson is researching Bridgewater and Tincher family history. The Taft’s came from New York, Vermont, and Massachusetts. The Bridgewater’s lived in Lexington, KY, but they came from the Scottsburg area of Indiana. The Patterson’s, Jones, Simpson’s, and McMurry lived in Fayette, Garrard, Mercer, and Woodford Counties of Kentucky. One of the links below leads you to a very good Mercer Co. KY Genealogy page. Some Jones and McMurry information gathered from the book by Mrs. Raymond Jones of Harrodsburg, KY. Mike McMurry has contributed a lot of the McMurry information and also some of the Jones and other information in this family tree. Mike has interviewed many family members including myself. The McMurry or McMurray name has been spelled in different ways according to family traditions. Some of the Mershon information was contributed by Donald Moulder. Some of the Bunton information was contributed by Barbara Ransdell. Some of the Bridgewater information was contributed by Carole Ann Bridgewater Tolen. Some of the Patterson information was contributed by Ralph Williams and N.J. White.
