Interested in information regarding the family of John Murphy and Sarah Georgina Tregeagle. They were married approximately 1870 in what I believe to be Christchurch,NZ. They had three children: John James Murphy (b. Aug 1877), William Murphy (b. unknown), and Katie Murphy (b. unknown). All the children were supposedly born in Christchurch.
I know nothing of John Murphy, but I do know that Sarah and her children, along with her mother, immigrated to the United States in 1880. Family lore had it that John did not travel with them, but for what reason I don't know.
Any coordination of research would be greatly appreciated.
