My ggfather was James J. Murphy. Oral history has him in the area of Graycourt, N.Y. in 1845. He bought a home there in 1847 or 1849. He was father of Bridget Murphy who married my grandfather,John J. O'Brien in 1896 in Graycourt. The family eventually moved to Brooklyn, NY. Could this be a connection to the James Murphy at the boarding house that you mentioned? I'm not really sure where Graycourt is- I think it is near Goshen. Any help would be appreciated.

All my relatives are from County Clare I have information on the males and their families from the year 1669, from my the family of my grandfather, Joseph Stephen Cullinan. I am looking for anything I can find on the other County Clare relatives.I do know that the Considines and Cullinans emigrated together in 1850 and the Considines went to Dubuque, Iowa because of the large contingent there of people from Clare there, drawn by the Cistercians who came from Clare.
I would like to subscribe.

CULLINANS OF CLARE

Surnames: Cullinan, Vaughan
Mary Cullen was my gt. grandmother. She was born in Warrington England in 1853 and married James Smith in Lancashire in 1875.

Thomas Cullinan was Mary's father. The name was corrupted and appears as Culnan, Cullen, Cullan, and Cullin. He married at Catherine Vaughan at St. Alban's R.C. Churchnin Warrington England in 1852. He was born in Ireland, and I suspect he came from County Clare. I am told that Clare is one of the few places in Ireland where Cullinans and Vaughans were found together.

Connor Cullinan was Thmas' father. He had died by the time of Thomas' marriage in 1852. He is described as a farmer. I have not found him on the 1851 census for Warrington. He may have come to England, or he may have died in Ireland.

If anyone has any information please get in touch. I don't know if my details help you. Let's hope so.

Thanks so much for your info. I have since found Greycourt, NY. It seems to be a railroad crossing SE of Goshen, NY. I believe that my James was a farmer. I have oral info of his farming potatoes, celery and onions in 1845. Will keep searching, but thank you for sharing!

I just found documentation of a Thomas J. Murphey buried in Greycourt Cemetery in Orange Co., NY. Thomas was b. 1822 and d. 1870. So far I do not have anything more than oral history to connect this Thomas Murphey to my family, but my oral history has a Thomas Murphey married to a Mary Reddy, Thomas being brother to James J. Murphy, who was m. to Bridget Reddy, sister to Mary Reddy.

Eventually descendents of this family settled in Brooklyn as well.

I also just got a response to a quirey about Reddy's in Ireland and though we do not have a connection at this point, you might check out this person with your info.
