  Gospel Preacher In East Alabama
 
It was my privilege to conduct a gospel meeting in Collinsville, Alabama in June, 2013. While there some of the brethren were talking about preachers of the past who influenced the churches in the area. The name Zeke Murphy came up time and again in conversation. I had the opportunity to meet one of his sons who came a couple of nights to the meeting. Brother Murphy did much work in east Alabama in his life. More information is needed to put together a lasting tribute to him, his life and influence. If anyone has any information they would care to share, and make available for this site, it would certainly enhance the memory of this good man.
