My name is Mary Beth Daily Bruns. I was emailing because I think the Catherine Durkin in which you referred to in your post below is my great-grandmother. I actually have a picture of her and her 3 sisters, I believe Ellen, Mary Ann and Winifred taken in Boston, Massachusetts circa 1895.
I would be very interested in talking with you about this - I have been trying to find out any information on the Durkin line that I can find.
Catherine Durkin came to Boston and married William Murphy in 1898. They had a son William who died at less than 2 years, a daughter Winifred (my grandmother), daughter Mary and son Patrick, who was born in Indianapolis.
I hope that you receive this and I look forward to hearing from you.
I have a picture of the Durkin/Walsh cottage in Ballincurry that I would be happy to share with you if we are the same family.
