Title: Murphys : Railway family from Wexford
Post by: Mike Mahon on Wednesday 24 April 19 13:25 BST (UK)
Hello,  I'm just posting to see if there are any descendants of the Murphy family around.  Descendants of James C Murphy (1848-1909) or his brother Thomas Murphy (1849-1910). 
My grandfather was Francis Xavier Murphy (son of James C Murphy) and I have been learning a bit about the family tree and how a lot of them worked for the railways in the Wexford and Wicklow areas.

James C Murphy would have been my great grandfather, and he married Bridget Winifred Byrne.
Thomas Murphy would have been my great grand uncle and he married Mary Lally Cosgrave (1851-1938) on 20/11/1870.  [her parents were Elizabeth Loughlin and William Cosgrave}

As far as I know James C Murphy was the station master of New Ross Train Station and he is buried in St Stephen's Cemetery.  (I am hoping to come down to visit this later this summer to try and locate his grave).

My grandfather was Francis Xavier Murphy 26/4/1891 - 9/5/1933 and he married my grandmother Elizabeth Enright on 3/3/1919.  He worked as an accountant with the railways and as far as I know a lot of the other family members worked for the railways.

One of my grandfather's sisters Sarah Murphy was born on 30/8/1877 in an area called Macmine in Co.Wexford and she married a Daniel Moran of Rosbercon New Ross on 29 November 1901, and they had a shop on Quay Street.  She died on 16/2/1912.

The rest of the Murphy family I know of are as follows :
Bridget Winifred  11/4/1872 - 13/9/1913  Married a Hugh Johnson Shearman in Westminster England in 1904
Mary  Born 22/3/1874
Ellen  Born 10/10/1875
Joseph 24/5/1879 - 11/10/1931
Thomas
James 11/12/1880 - 26/1/1958 Married a Bridget Mary Monahan
Stephen 13/9/1882 - September 1967 Married a Loreto Warren,   emigrated to the USA
Norah 7/5/1885 - 27/3/1978 Married a John Murphy on 5/9/17
Paul 1/12/1886 - 18/3/1913
Ambrose 5/10/1888 - 11/2/1971 married a Marie Bridget Curran.  At one stage he was the Principal of Poulfor National School   emigrated to the USA.

Of the children of Thomas Murphy and Mary Lally Cosgrave I know of
Joseph A Murphy  (died 1930, married a Sarah Mary Kehoe
Joseph F Murphy
William Murphy 1873 - 1931.  Married a May Hatton
James Murphy 1875 - 1896
Thomas P Murphy born around 1877
Thomas Murphy born around 1879 (I am not sure if perhaps these are the same person)
Elizabeth Murphy 1880 - 1849
Laurence Murphy 1882 - 1960 married a Mary F Ryan
Francis Murphy 1886 - 1946 Married an Annie Nolan
Edmund T Murphy 1889 - 1899

I'd be interested to see if anyone recognises any of them as their ancestors. 

Thanks

Mike
