Are we absolutely sure that Sheriff Murphy is the same person as Jebediah Murphy? Because the very first Murphy doesn't necessarily have to be the original Murphy's Law. {{SUBST:User:Arend/Sig2}} 21:28, March 17, 2019 (UTC)

This was the same concern I had in an earlier conversation - I'm still against deciding that Sheriff Murphy's name is Jebediah. Everything on the wiki should be based in irrefutable fact, and there just isn't enough evidence for us to act as an authority on the subject - it borders too close to speculation.

Personally, I think it would be best to keep the name 'Jebadiah' and all related information in the trivia section, if anything. Thoughts?

So I have asked on Twitter if Jebediah and the sheriff are the same guy, and this is what Joshua Pruett said:

“My recollection is we were thinking the line went further back than that”

I think it's safe to say that Jebediah is NOT the sheriff, from what I understand. {{SUBST:User:Arend/Sig2}} 22:20, March 17, 2019 (UTC)

Arend, have I ever told you that you're amazing?

I just want to say sorry for changing the name of the page, without telling anybody. And thanks Arend for checking.WaffleTail260 (talk) 22:29, March 17, 2019 (UTC)
