Mary Cooper Murphy?

Mary Cooper Murphy?

Surnames: Rodden, Cooper, Murphy
My 3rd gr-grandmother was Mary Murphy from Mitchell, WI and she married Michael Patrick Rodden February 2, 1855 at Holy Name Catholic Church in Sheboygan. There seem to be several Mary Murphys from Mitchell, WI and I can't seem to find any info beyond my Mary as far as who her parents were or what part of Ireland she was from. I have seen some research with her name as Mary Cooper Murphy, but no official records. The only thing I have is an obituary for Michael Patrick Rodden showing that he "married a Miss Mary Murphy of Mitchell". HELP!

Today I was able to view the Holy Name church records on microfilm at the Sheboygan FHC. I am not able to read Latin very well but I was able to find the marriage you refer to. As you said they were married Feb 2, 1855. MICHAEL RODDEN, 22, parents: Thomas & Helena, MARIA MURPHY, 18, parents: Jacob & Helena (deceased). Iam attaching an image of the record. I hope this is helpful to your research.
