Marriage*before 1785Timothy Murphy1,3 
(Witness) Will7 April 1787Timothy Murphy; Duplin County, North Carolina, USA; Property was divided between wife Barbary and neighbor William Murphy.

7 Apr 1787 - Apr Court 1787

"... wife BARBARY slaves Jack an old fellow, Blainey, Black Jupiter, Yellow Jupiter, Lucy, Jean and Child Called London and after her Decease Equally
Divided Amongst all the Children of my Friend WILLIAM MURPHEY & ELISABETH his present Wife Except his Son TIMOTHY which is to be otherwise provided for; wife BARBARY Dureing her Natural life all my Horses, Hogs, Cattle, Sheep, poultry, Household Stock of Every nature or Kind, Kitchen furniture, Plantation Tools & c and at her Decease Equally Divided amongst the Children of WM. MURPHEY aforesaid and Elisabeth his wife; WILLIAM MURPHEY negro Grace and her two Children Stephen and Hannah; TIMMOTHY Son of WM MURPHEY Slaves Jack, Cato, Arthur, Chloe and Celah and Should he Die without heirs of his Body then Equally Divided amongst the Surviving Children of the Said WM MURPHEY and ELISABETH his wife; Friend TIMOTHY BRYAN negro Jerry, one hundred acres in Newhanover County nigh the Mouth of Rockfish; DANIEL, a Son of FRANCIS GIBSON a Small Tract on a branch of Stockinghead be the place whereon the Said FRANCIS GIBSON now lives; JACOB son of HENRY WELLS Dec'd. Five Shillings Sterling Money of Great Brittain.

extrs: wife BARBARY, JAMES KENAN, WILLIAM DICKSON, JOSEPH DICKSON

wit: JACOB WELLS, WILLIAM (sign) KNOWLES, WILLIAM WELLS
signed: Timmothy (sign) Murphey"1,4 
Cen-Head*1800NC Duplin Co Census 1800; Duplin County, North Carolina, USA; female age 45 or over, with 9 slaves, adjacent to William Murphy household. This William Murphy is likely the brother of Barbary's deceased husband Timothy.2 
Will*1802Duplin County, North Carolina, USA; The will names slave Yellow Jupiter. It was entered in court in the July Term 1802. "Yellow Jupiter have leave to choose his own Master and that he shall have the mare and colt and three cows and calves and one yearlin, one plough, one ax, one drawing knife, one hoe, one cart, six plates, four boles, two mugs, one pot." extr: brother Frederick Wells; wit: John Matthis, Mary (sign) Murphy, Mary (sign) Brown; signed: Barbara (sign) Murphy.

Note that Jupiter was then in 1810 ordered by the court sold at public auction. This was related to the estate of William Murphy and Elizabeth Murphy, both deceased, and proceeds were directed to be used to benefit minor Henry Murphy, son of William and Elizabeth. This must mean that Jupiter remained part of the estate until 1810, and it seems to contradict the wishes of Barbary.3 
Death*1802Duplin County, North Carolina, USA3 
Probate*19 July 1802Duplin County, North Carolina, USA; "Last Will & Testament of Barbara Murphy Exhibited and proved by John Matthis, one of the subscribing witnesses & at same time Frederick Wells, Ex'r named in said Will, Qualified." The court also ordered the Executor to sell as much of the estate as sufficient to discharge debts.5 
Probate*20 January 1803Timothy Murphy; Duplin County, North Carolina, USA; Court order recorded concurrence with a division of Negroes of the Estate of Tim Murphy in accordance with his will, with wife Barbary having died.5

Comment*George Osborn; Mockinson Gap District, Stewart County, Georgia, USA; family entered because 10 year old Harrison Baldwin was in their household in the 1850 census. Suspect they are linked somehow to the Ira Hobbs family, who had young Sarah Baldwin in their household, and the Lott Sanders family, who had 11 year old John Baldwin in their household. All lived in Mockinson Gap District.
