Am trying to tie together this Timothy Murphy to my person, Jeremiah Murphy. Timothy was born 1808 in Ireland. His wife Donigan (or Ann) was born abt. 1812 in Ireland.
Census 1860 Huntsville, Madison Co., AL Timothy age 52 b. 1808 Ireland, rope manufacturer Donigan N., age 48, b. Ireland Daniel Murphy age 16 b. Alabama (b. abt. 1844)
Census 1870 Huntsville, Madison Co., AL Thimothy (as spelled by census taker) Murphy age 62 b. Ireland, RR agent Ann Murphy, age 54, b. Ireland Danil O C Murphy, age 27, b. Alabama (abt. 1844) Fanny Steele, age 22, domestic servant
Can't find in 1880 census yet
The father of my Jeremiah Murphy born 1796 in Ireland is supposedly Daniel O'Connor Murphy b. Ireland. Since Timothy has a son named Danil O. C. Murphy, I'm thinking there could be a connection.
