Would you happen to have siblings listed for Thomas (1) or parentage? I have a Murphy family that I am researching....Joseph Henry Murphy, son of James Murphy. Joseph married Lydia Ellen Batten and they had 11 children. They resided in the surrounding counties....Marion, Lucas, and Warren.
Appreciate any info. Thanks!

Joseph Henry Murphy

Joseph Henry Murphy b: 15 May 1833 Richmond, Virginia d: 08 Mar 1900 Chariton, Lucas Co., Iowa (m) Lydia Ellen Batten/Battin. This is my direct tie in.

Was trying to connect your Thomas Murphy to Joseph,,,,possibly sibling.. Will have to keep trying on that one.

I have a James Murphy listed as the father of my Joseph Henry Murphy with a possibly sibling of Joseph's listed as George W.C. Murphy b: Abt 1830 d: 11 Jul 1857 Pleasantville, Marion Co., Iowa. I am sure that there is more children to add to this list but have not been able to connect as of yet.

Good Luck in your research. Maybe we can connect these families at a later date.
Thanks for the response.

I don't have parents or siblings for Thomas Murphy. The following information is believed related to this Murphy family.

Children of THOMAS MURPHY and JENNY UNK are:

ii. ELIZABETH A. "BETTIE" MURPHY, m. JAMES WREN, January 20, 1890, Marion Co., IA.

Notes for ELIZABETH A. "BETTIE" MURPHY:
1928 lived Knoxville, Marion Co., IA.
.

It is possible that Barbara Murphy, below, is also a daughter of Thomas and Jennie Murphy.

JAMES BROWN married BARBARA A. MURPHY 24 Oct 1875 Marion IA
William Amos Murphy (s of Thomas Henry Murphy) had a cousin "Miss Clara Brown" at his funeral in 1918.

The James Brown below, buried in the Wren cemetery, seem to be the one who married Barbara Murphy. His burial in the Wren cemetery would then be explained by his wife's sister, ELIZABETH A. "BETTIE" MURPHY, having married a Wren.

Nancy Jane Murphy was from Sandyville Ia which I believe is in Marion CO. b:4-9-1856. d:4-16-1917 in Chariton IA Lucas Co. she married Thomas Henry Martin on 4-19-1874, b:1-21-1851 near Ragtown in Benton Township, Lucas Co. after she died he went to Montana but much of his family stayed in Chariton. That is all that i am sure of from our family records. It appears she was a twin and I think her parents were Joseph Henry Murphy and Lydia Ellen Batten. Could these people be related?

The John J. Murphy listed on your message, was married to Ellen Wren, probably a sister to Thomas Wren, also on your list.
John J. Murphy, b. 1825 in Lixnaw, Co. Kerry, Ireland, was my great-grandfather. I do not know his father's name, but according to his death cert., his mother's name was Kathryn Haley.
If you want more info, email me.

I am interested in any additional information you have regarding the Murphy family. My great-grandmother was Elizabeth "Beth" Murphy Wren. My grandmother was Genevieve Ann Wren Caffrey b. 1901 d. 1981. I was unaware of who Elizabeth's father/mother were until I saw your posting and recognized the marriage date to James Wren. Thank you for any help you may provide.
