Native Heritage1899 Creek Native Rolls, Eliza Jane (Jobe) Murray is listed as 1/8 Indian while her son, William S. Murphy is listed as 1/16 Indian. This would mean that Cherokee (Sells), wife of LeRoy Perry Jobe was 1/4 native and that Eliza's husband, Constantine M. Murphy, Sr., had NO noticeable native heritage.
