Hi
Thankyou to you all for the information all the births registered I never knew Mary and George had so many children there are loads of Mary Murphys on the island but George Murphy I've only heard of is my Great Grandfather and I do think his Father was also George Murphy also the Drowning of Catherine's Brother Pat was tragic I never knew this also the Article in the Irish Times this information is amazing I was the Patten man who also drowned could well be a relative as a few of my relatives have married Pattens as they live close by thank you all so much I'm very grateful that I'm finding so much about George and Mary's family

Hi also
Think George Murphy father was also called George so I do think the death certificate was his in 1874 as it also says Mary Murphy was present on his death

Hi thank you. Yes that's definitely another son John  I missed that also the son pat is George Murphy son as I know he was the only George Murphy and was from saula /saila this is great that you have found this information and very sad that the son pat tragically drowned so now I there are at least 6 children born and Mary was still alive after 1871

I noticed that earlier records sometimes are registered in Newport and then in westport I used to get very confused also if the catholic marriages starts in 1867 and George and Mary got married before this which I think is the case there will not be a record of there marriage and which is a shame
Thankyou for your reply

Hi
Sorry I meant to reply about the 1901 census  yes it is the right George Murphy living with family the age was wrong as he was 80years of age he died in 1902 and his wife had already passed away my family said she was called Mary however I have looked for other Christian names with the surname Murphy but can't find her death certificate as I far as I know the last child was James in 1871  my Great Grandmother was his sister Catherine Murphy I still have family living in Achill who have gave me a lot of information only that George and Mary were buried in the old Kildownet Cemetery which I couldn't find the grave or records when I last visited Achill
Thanking you kindly for your reply

Hi to you all replying to information on George Murphy first so do you think George is buried at the old Kildownet I wasn't sure as there is no headstone also there is a headstone for Catherine Murphy and Patrick which I have visted I have seen the death records of George Murphy but Mary Murphy née Gallagher I really don't know much about my Great Great Grandmother I know George was from Saila and they lived there I can't find there marriage cert and can't understand why I can't find her death certificate if Mary death wasn't in Achill I've checked castlebar
It's just a mystery
Thankyou to everyone who has sent information
