Hi Mary! Thank you so much for the wonderful information. Anything that you have I am definitely interested in.
My great grandmother Mary Ann Spatcher was living in Hartford, Conneticut and met my great grandfather, Francis Murphy (b. 1859), who was a professinal baseball player for the New York Metropolitans and later the New York Giants. They settled on West 128th St.in Harlem (NYC where Francis had been born to Michael and Catharine(King) of Ireland. Francis became a butcher and they had four children Francis J.(my grandfather born 1887), John(b.1894),David(b.1895) and Ruth(b.1901). My Grandfather Francis Murphy marries Mary Neely(b.1887 New York),daughter of Robert Neely(Tyrone, Ireland) and Mary Murphy(Cork,Ireland),in 1915.

I will forward the information on my cousins spouses and children and my neices spouse and children as soon as I verify some dates.
A good part of the family still lives around the New York City area. I live on Long Island outside NYC in Sayville and work as a police sergeant my wife Anne is a teacher.
I am trying to see just where Padbury is using the internet. My father's side of the family left Tyrone Ireland in about 1849 and went to Durham England to work in the coal mines. they left about 1882 to work the coal mines of southwest Pennsylvania. Is Durham near Padbury.
Again, any information you have I am interested in. thank you so much for responding and bringing to light what has been a mystery for my family for some time.
