I am looking for any information on the family of Michael (b: 1829) & Rose (nee: Rogers) Murphy. According to the 1900 Census, Michael came to the US in 1848 (19 yrs old) and Rose came to the US in 1950. In 1900 Michael was 66 yrs old and Rose was 79 (I’m suspicious of that). I found Michael & Rose in the 1880 Census (both ages listed as 45) and listed are three sons, Hugh, John and James. They lived in the Bronx, NY for as far back as I can find and as far back as my mother knows.
Michael died in 1906 at age 77 in the Bronx, NY. His death certificate lists father as Edward and mother as Ann (no maiden name listed). I cannot find any census records that list Michael living with his father, mother and/or siblings. I did find in the five volume series of Irish Immigrants a family with Edward, Ann and several children, one of them Michael, age 19.
If anyone has any information on this family or thinks they are related, please contact me. Also if anyone has any suggestions as to what else, where else I can look to find information, I’d be very grateful. Thanks in advance, Allison.
