Looking for any info on Murphy's in this area.
My grandfather was Dan Murphy born 1903 his father was Michael Murphy married to Mary O Connell. His grandfather was Michael Murphy of Knocknagree and his great grandfather was also Michael Murphy. These murphy's once owned the fair field in Knockngree and there nickname was Mor(Irish for Big). Feel free to e-mail me if any info ar think you are related
My wife's g-grandfather was Cornelius T Murphy b. 1850 Bantry, Cork, Ireland per his daughter's research on a visit to Ireland in the 1970's. He immigrated to the USA in 1866, and married Mary UNKNOWN in Philadelphia in 1884.
I have no idea how close Rathmore is to Bantry, but if anyone knows of this family, please let me know.
