and had children:
Mary (Molly) Laphenb. 1877
They lived in Dublin and had a butcher's shop in Moore Street. Mary immigrated to New York (1914) and Anne followed with her family (1923).At least one of the brothers went to Canada after that.
Always pronounced the name with a "p" sound as in Lappin.
Molly always insisted they had a French origin and pronounced it with a French accent.
Would like to hear from anyone with this name.
