This page will no longer be updated. I am having too many health problems to feel like spending the time to do it in the quality manner it deserves plus I have only recently discovered (why didn't anyone tell me this?) that GenForum offers a MUCH better and AUTOMATED free query system which I highly recommend that you try. While you may find queries on this page which you may be able to answer (and please do if you can) I recommend that after reading them you click on the GenForum link below for the appropriate name of your interest and leave any and all queries there.

Thanks for the support I had from everyone while I was doing them. Tim


The GenForum boards below are all great sources of data for the sunames from my ancestry listed in the table below. GenForums own description of their site is below.

GenForum says, "GenForum is a conglomeration of message boards (some people call them queries, we call them forums). Anyone can post to our forums and immediately have their data shared with other researchers. From our home page, you can access our over 8200 forums devoted to specific surnames, states, countries, and general topics."

I'm looking for my grandmother Mary Josephine Murphy Cushing's brother who as I understand originally lived in the Boston area. When I saw your Murphy connection I thought it might be a good place to look. FYI Mary Josephine Murphy Cushing was born in Carrick on Suir, County Tipperary, Ireland on March 22, 1893. She came to the States to work as a domestic for a professor at Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey, where she married and raised a family of seven children. She is buried in St. Paul's Cemetery, Princeton, New Jersey. If you think there is any connection, please contact me at the address given. Good luck in your search.

Just getting started in searching the MURPHY line and really don know where to start. I believe most of my ancestors are from the Tennessee area. If you could give me a few pointers I would appreciate it. I have an aunt that married into the Hardison family and she lives in Pinetown N.C.
Thanks and keep up the good work

Hello; you are very lucky to have a bible that is actually filled out. My husbands bible with the Murphy name only has pictures and no names. We live in northern Ontario Canada. All we know about our bible is that it belonged to ggrandfather and written in pen on the inside cover is West Troy New York. We have just started our search the name is John Murphy and he was married in Canada in 1888 other than that we have nothing. We are looking forward to the search as my husband and my two sons are the last of the line. Enjoyed your page.

May the Lord take a liking to you but not too soon.
