This was my Great-Grandmother Manirva Murphy. Taken around the late 1800's she is the little girl her father is holding. her mother had Cherokee Indian in her. She passed away about 1 year before I was born .It would of been great to meet her as my family called her (Mommy Hobbs) her married and my Grandmothers maiden name.
