Murphy in 1997: Subj: I'm still here Date: 97-04-26 07:37:11 EDT From: lhiser@acclink.com (Linda Hiser) To: ChersFmly@aol.com Cherie, Hello! I wrote to John V. Murphy who put the Fife book together and here is what he said: "Re your recent letter of 17 April 1997, I do not kow about documentation. As I recall it was written by Joseph Vance (?) for an 1890 family reunion. I located an original copy from a lady who had used it as documentation for a DAR application. I got copies of 3 or 4 DAR applications and I wrote to these people. One responded that she had an original that had been a family keepsake. On my request she was kind enough to hav it photocopied. I did some indexing and had it reprinted and got copies in all the local libraries. I do not know if DAR still accepts this as proof, but I doubt it. At that time I had requestsw for copies from many Fife relatives and others across the country. All copies were gone for some time. One lady in Iowa sent me a photocopy of a photograph that was made at that reunion. None of the people were identified. I wish I could give you more help. I am no longer able to do research. Good luck with your searching. Sincerely, John V. Murphy" Thanks for everything.
