My great grand aunt Mary Murphy was born in Slieveowen [parish of Kilmichael] County Cork in February 1850. She emigrated to the US probably about 1870 - 1875. She married a Lannin, whose family also came from the parish of Kilmichael, County Cork. Their son, who was in the US military, visited his Murphy relatives in Cork during WW2.
Mary Murphy's sister Ellen Murphy born in Slieveowen April 1848 also emigrated to the US. She married an O'Connor 'a dancing master' Does anybody know anything the above ?
