|About Murphy/Champion Family Tree
Welcome! Several years ago my sister had the foresight to scan some old family photos. When I received the CD from her my obsession was born. I believe that we cannot know where we are going if we don't know from whence we came. Preserving the family history for future generations is one of the most important things we can leave our children and grand-children.
This website is based on my family tree of Murphy and Champion lines but will eventually also include my husband's Shull and Bruns lines. The tree listed here is but a partial list of my research. The full family tree (always a work in progress) can be found at Ancestry.com. I welcome any corrections, additions or comments you may have.
Though the generations wander, the lineage survives, and all of us, from dust to dust . . . we all become forefathers, by and by.
