Murphy – Voter’s Lists & Directories

The following Murphy and associated families information will eventually (I hope) be attached to the Murphy Tree post, or to some other connected tree. Some of this information is already, obviously related, and when I get a moment (or two) I will add these to the bibliography in the appropriate post.

NOTE :: The Thomas Murphy listed at the Peak in 1889 was likely the man listed in the Vital Stats at the Grand Banks site who died in 1896 – was he related to Ester Murphy, wife of Michael ‘Peak’ Walsh???

Why was he buried in St John’s? I thought that this might be an error in the record but William Hannon called my attention to another listing for his death in the St John’s records, (perhaps because he was buried there?), this one with the interesting addition of his birthplace as Chapel’s Cove.

Thanks Gina

    • Eileen Walsh says:

      Hello Gina,

      I have information on your Butler ancestors in my Walsh post. Your 3rd great grandfather, Thomas Butler, was from Clomel, County Tipperary – and not Clarenville. I’m sure the mistake was caused by incomprehensible handwriting in the Parish Register.

      I have not yet been able to prove indisputably that Susan Walsh was part of my Walsh clan, but the information I have on the Butlers, although not extensive, should be fairly accurate.
