Note*Daniel Murphy If it is true that Mary's parents were among the Murphy families who were in Duplin County, North Carolina around 1800 then she may be a second or third generation descendant of immigrants to North Carolina from Ireland in the early 1700's. The Murphy emigration excerpt on the left is a perspective on one of these families. The surname list links to the database of all researched names, including many Murphys who lived in the Duplin/Sampson County area between 1780 and 1830.1 
NoteHe Excerpt from The Murphy Family
Master Surname Index

Michael Gilbert Taylor, The Murphy Family, 1983

(This unpublished book of compiled Murphy family history is found in the Leora H. McEachern Library of Local History, in Rose Hill, NC)

from the foreword:

"The Murphys in North Carolina have been known for two hundred years for their contributions to political, religious, and social life in this colony and state. The name was originally McMurchie, but was changed to Murphy after Gaelic was suppressed. They originally came from the Island of Arran, on the west coast of Scotland and they belonged to the ancient race of Celts who refused to be Romanized or Anglicized. They later migrated to Ireland and were seated at Castle Ellis and Ouleartleagh in the barony of Ballaghkeen, in the eastern part of the country around Wexford. During the period from 1740 until the time of the American Revolution, large numbers of settlers from Scotland and Ireland settled in the Upper Cape Fear Valley of North Carolina. Among these were John Murphy, our first ancestor to come to this country, and his brothers, believed to be William and Timothy Murphy."1

Marriage*20 December 1856He married Lucinda Jane Deal on 20 December 1856 at Henry County, Alabama; Marriage is inferred from Joseph D. and Lucinda ("Cinda") living in household of James E. Balkcom in 1860. Also refer to e-mail from Civil War Researcher Al Medcalf noting "A Lucinda Balkum from Henry County Alabama drew a widow's pension on Joseph D. Balkcom". On file also is an "Affidavit for Witnesses to Application of Widows", where Ivey Balkcom attests to Confederate military service of Joseph Balkcom, supporting a widow's pension.3,4 
Milit-Beg*24 April 1863Joseph D. Balkcom began military service on 24 April 1863 at Dale County, Alabama, Confederate Army in Company D (Dale County), 57th Regiment, Alabama Infantry, as a Private. He enlisted in Clopton, AL for a period of 3 years. Ivey Balkcom, also of the household of James E. Balkcom, enlisted later in the year.

Enlisted in 57th AL Company D, at Clopton, Dale County 4-24-63; Wounded at Peachtree Creek & DOW Barnesville Hospital,Lamar Co. GA 7/64. His brother Ivey joined the same company in Sept. 1863 and later signed for his brother's widow, Lucinda Jane (Deal) to draw pension.4,5,6 
Burial*circa 1864He was buried circa 1864 at Old Solders Cemetery, Barnsville, Lamar County, Georgia;

Death*circa 1864He died circa 1864 at Barnsville, Lamar County, Georgia; Barnesville, Lamar County, Georgia, USA, Died of wounds received in the Battle of Atlanta: "J. D. Belcom, Company D, 57th Regiment". Researcher Al Medcalf believes this is Joseph D. Balkcom, supported by Dale County origin of the Alabama 57th and absence of any other reference in this unit to a Belcom. He reports that "These soldiers died in the summer of 1864 in hospitals here in Barnesville and were casualties of the Atlanta Campaign." Company D. of the 57th Alabama Infantry was in the battle with Gen Sherman in the Union taking of Atlanta in 1864.4

Balkcom is listed as dying from exposure, about a month after his capture. According to the reference: " Conditions in the prison were harsh and the mortality rate was above average for a Union prison. Hot, humid summers and cold Midwestern winters took a heavy toll on prisoners already weakened by poor nourishment and inadequate clothing. The prison was overcrowded much of the time and sanitary facilities were inadequate. Pneumonia and dysentery were common killers but contagious diseases such as smallpox and rubella were the most feared. When smallpox infection became alarmingly high in the winter of 1862 and spring of 1863, a quarantine hospital was located on an island across the Mississippi River from the prison.
