Tina, First of all thank you sooo much for the reply! I've posted so many of these and gotten nothing.
Ok, my problem is that there is so little that I know of these people. What I do know about them is that "old man" Murphy MAY have been born in Ireland. The only other note that I have for him is that "he worked for the city." I also know that he passed away around 1984 (give or take about 3 years). Both he and Mary are supposedly buried in Pittsfield. She passed away after him. She was a homemaker, of course. So they are both gone. No dates on either of them...but they had 13 children supposedly and the youngest was born abt 1952-ish.
I thought that if I could get my "hands" on some obits from the early 1980's from Pittsfield that I could maybe find something out but I can't seem to find any.
Thank you again.
