There's a Timothy Buckley's obituary 1879-12-15, died in Franklin Borough. A relative?

The link to the obit index is http://blacklick2.000webhostapp.com/interest.html, at the bottom of the page.

That's her son:
Buckley, Timothy, age 27, Franklin Borough, 1879-12-15

This comes from a free genweb site  for Cambria Co. It is their transcription of the 1889 Johnstown City Directory.  The numbers after the address tell how many survived the flood. The other abbreviations are on the page that is linked.

for example, this means that there were 5 in Dennis's household when the Directory information was gathered and all 5 survived:

Buckley Rose, widow, bds Dennis A. Murohy's.
Murphy Dennis A. trav agt, r h Spruce st, Frank. 5-5

same with your Michael:
Buckley Michael, no occupation, r h 205 Iron st, Mv. 5-5.

the whole list is at

wow you are an angel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes that is her and her family, her children from her first marriage and then as a widow, she married Timothy Buckley and came to Penns. and had more children.  I have a lot to review.

the other gg grandparents, also in Johnstown were Daniel Mc Donald and Elizabeth Finnegan.  Their daughter Elizabeth, married the Buckley's son, Micheal Edward and they are my great grandparents.

John Murphy, 19, born in Ireland, puddler's helper


obit: https://www.newspapers.com/clip/14092587/obituary_john_d_murphy/

      :  https://www.newspapers.com/clip/14092609/death_john_d_murphy/

The obituaries said he was born Feb 2, 1841, in Ireland.

There are no John Murphy baptisms in Cork in February of the years 1840 - 1842, with parents Rosanna Sweeney and Timothy Murphy at https://churchrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/

That doesn't mean he wasn't born and baptized in Cork, it just means there is no record of his baptism, or at least I didn't find one.

I don't think this Dennis Buckley is your family. Findagrave says he was born in 1827 and his headstone is shared with a Hannah.
Dennis Buckley
Obituaries Johnstown Tribune
January 9, 1892, and January 11, 1892

He is probably this person in the 1889 City Directory. He is also on the 1880 census, and some marriage records for his children.
Buckley Daniel, steel worker, bds 200 Ebensburg Road.
Buckley Dennis, laborer, o h 200 Ebensburg Road, Pros. 5-5.
Buckley Maggie Miss. teacher, bds 200 Ebensburg Road.

Still, you need to ask why Rosanna and Michael Thomas Buckley came to Johnstown and not somewhere else. This Dennis might have been there before they were, I didn't look, and might be a relative. If so his information will help you locate what you need.

Overall - what I am driving at is that you have to get as much information as you can in the US records about anyone related or possibly related, if you stand a chance of finding Rosanna or Michael Timothy's parents in Ireland. Maybe you will find a sibling's information who provides the names. And it will help greatly to find mention of an exact place of birth or marriage in Ireland. Otherwise you are looking for a needle in a haystack in the Irish records.
