I'm doing research on a Simon Francis Murphy, b. abt 1854 in Co. Wexford, IRE. The date of his emigration is not known. He worked on several ships out of Liverpool between 1878-1880 based on what looks like originals of some sort of orders I've seen that show the name of the ship, its voyage, dates, etc. (I don't know where to look for more info on these or even what they are, exactly.)
The death date is mixed - some of family says abt 1893, other family says 1933. He may have spent some time in San Francisco, but no documentation has been found. He married a Winifred, (believed to be O'Rourke) b. abt 1865, d. 1961, in Cuyahoga Co. Ohio. Her birthplace is either Ireland or Cuyahoga, Ohio. Simon may have moved to Cuyahoga Co where his sister was purported to live and met Winifred there. No names on siblings yet.
Winifred and Simon had several children - one was Harold Stephen Murphy (1893-1955).
