Classification: Query
Surnames: Murphy, Keane, Lane, Hickey, Downey, O'Connor, Curtin, Ahern
ALL the Murphy's of Knocknagoshel are related. Original Murphy was Timothy. My GGGrandfather was Maurice Murphy,
who was married to the former Mary Hickey of Meenleitrim. They had four children; Maurice( who inherited Keane farm in
Brosna)m. Ellen Fitzgerald, Michael (inhertied Murphy farm in Knocknagoshel) m. Ellen Sullivan, Mary m.Gleeson, and my
GGrandfather Daniel (1846-1901), shoemaker in Knocknagoshel, who married the former Ellen Keane (1848-1934), who
was from Mounteagle, Brosna. They had eleven children including Rev. Daniel Murphy (1890-1988), Provincial of The Holy
Ghost Fathers, past President of Rockwell College, and Procurator General for the Order to the Vatican for three different
Popes. One daughter was Margaret (Peggy) Nolan who lived in Knocknagoshel till the ripe old age of 99 in 1986. Another son
was my grandfather Maurice (1872-1946) who after spending ten years in NYC (1893-1903), and earning a nursing degree
from Manhattan State Hospital in 1899, returned to Ireland, married the former Minnie Scanlon of Knocknagoshel and settled
on a farm in Knockawarriga, Mt. Collins, CO Limerick, which is just across the river from Knocknagoshel. When Minnie died
while giving birth to their third child, Maurice married the former Nora Lane of Toureen NA Blath, Brosna, Co Kerry. They
had nine children including my mother Kathleen Murphy, who emigrated to Long Island,NY in Dec. 1947.
Any information on descendents of Mary Gleeson, Michael, and Maurice Murphy would be appreciated. Would also like to
know about siblings and parents of both Maurice Murphy and his wife Mary Hickey. I'll be in Ireland for fourweeks beginning
2-17-99. would love to meet up with some long lost relatives. I'm Buying!
