History - Nymphas was one of the Utah pioneers of 1847. Together with his father's family he participated in the exodus from Nauvoo in 1846, and after spending the winter of 1846-47 at Winter Quarters, he started for the Valley in the spring of 1847, crossing the plains in Capt. Ira Eldredge's fifty, which was the first company to arrive in the Valley after the pioneer company.

He married Malissa Barney Oct. 21, 1854. She was the daughter of Royal Barney and Sarah Bowen Estabrook of Amherst, Ohio, and came to Utah in 1852.

Bro. Murdock was ordained successively to the office of Deacon, Teacher, Priest, Elder, Seventy, High Priest and Bishop. From July 15, 1877, to 1891 he acted as Bishop of the Charleston Ward, where he settled in 1864 and to which place he had moved his family in 1865.

In 1867–68 he filled a mission to the Eastern States. He participated in the early troubles in Utah, taking part in the so-called Echo canyon war in 1857 and later in the Walker and Black Hawk Indian wars; he was a member of the company known in early Utah days as minute men.

At Charleston particularly he took a most active part in all matters pertaining to the improvement and upbuilding of the place. He was one of the organizers of the co-operative store there, and was throughout one of Utah's representative men.

He was ordained a Patriarch April 6, 1901, by Apostle Abraham O. Woodruff and in 1908 became a resident of Heber City, Utah, where he died April 29, 1917.
