I am researching my husbands tree and am not having very much luck. He is astranged from his father (we are not looking to reconnect)and his mother remembers very little of this family. It is important to my husband though to find out "what he comes from".
I am looking for "old man" Murphy and his wife Mary (no maiden name), great, right! No first name for the man and no maiden name for the woman...I know!
This is what I do know...
They are from the Pittsfield MA area. They were parishoners at St. Joseph Catholic Church. My husbands dads name is Patrick Murphy born in 1950.(Pat had two children before my husband,Patrick and Jeanne who may now live in N. Carloina and/or Ohio). He has an identical twin brother named Michael, who last we knew lived in NY. These two brother's supposedly have 11 other siblings. Some of the names of consiquence might be Rita, Bertie, Bodie, Mark (younger brother) and possible Colleen.
PLEASE if there is anyone who can point me in the right direction I would be very grateful!! Just a maiden name for Mary or "old man" Murphy's first name would be fine!
