Little is known about John as yet. He married Catherine Lahy and had a family of at least eight children, raised in Tybroughney (Tibberaghny), parish of Templeorum, barony of Iverk, County Kilkenny.
 
John is listed as a cess payer at Tybroughney in A List of Cess Payers, To be associated with the Justices at Special Sessions, 6 & 7 Wm IV, chap.116 for the Spring Assizes of 1839, as published in The Presentments of the Grand Jury, County of Kilkenny, 1838 (available here on Google Books).

Laurence is recorded in Griffith's Primary Valuation of Tenements (1851 - 1853) as living in Tibberaghny, near Carrick-on-Suir in County Tipperary, Ireland. There are two entries for Laurence in the valuation, the first for an area of 49 acres, valued at 60, and a second area of 55 acres, valued at 72. The owner of the land was Nicholas Powers, Esq. In addition, Laurence's farm buildings were valued at an annual rent of 10. It would appear that after his death, his brother Patrick may have inherited the farm.

b: abt 12 Nov 1816  d: after 1851
 
The record is unclear, but it is believed that John's second son was christened William.

Patrick Murray
abt 16/1/1835 - 29/11/1907
 
Patrick Murray was Calum's and Jamie's three times great grandfather.
 
Patrick was baptised on January 16th 1835 in the parish of Templeorum, County Kilkenny. His parents were John Murry and Catherine Lahy, resident in Tybroughney, on the outskirts of Carrick-on-Suir, but within County Kilkenny, with the sponsors noted as William Briscoe and Bridget Prendergast (quite possibly from the Prendergasts of Killonerry).
 
Patrick grew up to work as a farmer in Tybroughney (Tibberaghney). He married twice, initially to Ellen Healy, at some stage prior to 1858, with whom he had eight children. Following Ellen's death between 1867 and 1874, he remarried to Margaret Lanigan. This second marriage took place on September 28th 1874 in Carrick-on-Suir, with Patrick noted as a 36 year old farmer and widower from Tybrougney, son of John Murray, and Margaret as a 25 year old spinster, daughter of James Lanigan, and resident at Rathclarish. The witnesses were Edmond Dwyer and Anne Lanigan.
 
Patrick is listed in the 1901 census under the name of Murry at Tibberaghney, and as a 66 year old Roman Catholic farmer. He was able to read and write, but there is no indication as to whether he could understand the Irish language or not. Also present were his 50 year old wife Margaret (born in County Tipperary), his 40 year old farmer's son Maurice, his 22 year old housekeeper daughter Annie, his 20 year old farmer's son John, his 17 year old farmer's son Laurence, his 15 year old scholar daughter Bridie, 13 year old scholar Minnie and 9 year old scholar son James. All were born in County Kilkenny, and all could read and write, save James, who could only read by this stage. Also present was 50 year old servant Mary Fitzgerald, who was married and from County Tipperary. An RIC Constable, Patrick Haran, was the enumerator.  
 
In the additional pages of the 1901 census a great deal about the farm at Tibberaghny can be discovered. It is described as a private dwelling, with 11 outhouses or farm steadings. The main farmhouse had nine occupied rooms, 3 windows at the front and described as a '2nd class' property. There were ten people in the family, living in 9 occupied rooms. Patrick was the owner.
 
Patrick passed away at Tybroughney on 28 NOV 1907, the cause being heart disease. His son James, present at his death, was the informant to the Carrick-on-Suir based registrar on 9 DEC 1907 (GRO Ireland, 1907, D, Group ID Reg 4946514, Carrick on Suir).

The following obituary was recorded in the Munster Express on 7 DEC 1907 (p.3):
DEATH OF MR PATRICK MURRAY
 
On Thursday last the numerous friends of Mr. Patrick Murray, Tybroughney, throughout the counties of Kilkenny, Waterford and Tipperary learned with quite a shock of his death, which took place suddenly that morning at his residence, Tybroughney, Co. Kilkenny. The deceased was a fine type of Irishman and was well known and highly respected. He arose on Thursday morning as usual, and was preparing to go to the fair at Carrick-on-Suir when he was seized with a sudden illness. Dr. Moran and Rev. Canon Purcell, Piltown, were immediately on the scene. Dr. Moran did all that was possible for the patient, but without avail. Canon Purcell happily arrived in time to administer the last Sacraments. High Mass for the repose of the soul of the deceased was celebrated at Saturday morning last at Piltown, after which the interment took place at Carrickbeg. The late Mr. Murray was father of Sister M. Gertrude, Presentation Convent, Carrick-on-Suir. When the funeral cortege was passing the Convent it stopped to allow the sorrowing daughter to pay the last respect to the remains of her dear father from one of the windows. The following clergy assisted at the High Mass:- Rev. Canon Purcell P.P., Rev. W. Cahill (celebrant), Rev. P. Keoghan, Rev. Father Doyle, Rev. Father Brennan, Rev. Father Murphy. The chief mourners were - John, Laurence and James (sons), Valentine Lanigan, J. Lanigan, Patk. Sexton, L. Sexton, C. Sexton, Thomas W. Kiely, Robert McGuire, J. Butler, J. Walsh (cousins). The general public included - Messrs F. Doherty, Walter Walsh, E. Quinn, E. O'Brien, Ed. Dowley J.P., Tinvane House; Thomas Morrisey V.C. P.L.G., Carrick-on-Suir, John O'Brien, do.; Richard Doherty, do; Robert Power, V.C., do.; Thomas O'Keefe, do.; J.P. Kennedy, C.P.S., do.; Thomas Larkin, do.; M. Walshe, do. etc. We tender to his afflicted family our sincere sympathy.
 
In the 1911 census, Patrick's 60 year old widow Margaret is still listed at Tybroughney (Tibberaghney), and noted as a farmer. With her were her sons John, a 28 year old farmer's son, and James, a 19 year old farmer's son, and her 22 year old daughter Bridget. Also listed are two servants, Michael Lawlor (aged 28, unmarried and from Co. Kilkenny) and Patrick Moloney (aged 19, unmarried and from Tipperary).
 
Again, there is a description of the farm in the following pages. It had 13 out buildings, and the main farm buidling itself had nine occupied rooms and four windows at the front, being described as '2nd class'. Margaret was noted as the land owner.

Laurence Murray
18/6/1884 - 19??

Laurence Murray was Calum's and Jamie's great great grandfather.

Laurence was born on 18 JUN 1884 at Tybroughney, parish of Whitechurch, County Kilkenny, the son of Patrick Murray, farmer at Tybroughney, and Margaret Lannigan. The informant to the registrar on 1 JUL 1884 was his father (GRO Ireland, 1884, B, Group Reg ID 10620878, Carrick-on-Suir).

Laurence was subsequently baptised in the parish of Templeorum, his home residence being the family farm in Tybroughney (Tibberaghny). His father was Patrick Murray, his mother Margaret Lanigan, and the sponsor was Catherine Murray. The RootsIreland website notes the date of baptism as 11 JUN 1884, which is clearly an error.

In the 1901 census he was noted as aged 17 and a farmer's son at the family farm in Tibberaghny. He was Roman Catholic, unmarried, and could read and write.
 
Laurence is believed to have married Ellen Gorman in approximately 1908, however the record has as yet to be found.

In 1909, Laurence went ahead of his family to the port of Liverpool, England, from where he emigrated to the United States aboard the ship Arabic, at a cost of 15. He arrived in New York harbour on November 8th 1909, and was processed through Ellis Island. A description of Laurence is included in the immigration records. He was 6 foot and an inch tall, had fair complexion, brown eyes and grey hair. He was not deformed, crippled, a polygamist, an anarchist, and had good health, with the ability to read and write. He is also listed as having never been in prison.

Arriving in New York, he went to stay with his cousin, Michael Shea, and Patrick Phelan, in their home at 179 East 118th Street. He was joined shortly after by his wife Ellen and his daughter Mary, and soon after the family moved to Amityville on Long Island, where their second daughter Ailsa was born. But after about seven years, Ellen and Laurence separated, and Ellen took the girls back to Ireland. Laurence is believed to have never returned to Ireland.

Ailsa Murray
b: 1915 (approx) d: 1936 (approx)


Ailsa Murray

Ailsa was born in America in Amityville, Long Island, New York State. Nothing is known of her time in the States as yet, but it is believed that she returned at the age of seven or eight to Ireland, placing this at about 1922 or 1923 approximately.

Back in Ireland, but without her father, Ailsa was raised with her sister Mary at Three Bridges, on the outskirts of Carrick-on-Suir, but on the Kilkenny side of the border with Tipperary.

As a teenager, Ailsa worked in Jury's Hotel in Dublin and then moved over to London to work in Jury's there, but contracted tuberculosis at the age of 21 and died (GROEW D Jan-Mar 1936 Chelsea Vol 1a p.589).

Ailsa never married, and was buried in a cemetery in Maida Vale, in the north west of London.

Mary Murray

Mary Murray is believd to have been born in Three Bridges, Piltown, County Kilkenny, Ireland, on January 13th 1909, however a birth record has as yet to be located for her. (It is possible that she may have been born in the US instead).
 
It is believed that Mary went as an infant to live for a time in the United States, staying in Amityville, Long Island, New York State. It is not known what happened during her time here, but when her mother and sister returned to Ireland a few years later, she accompanied them. It is believed that she never saw her father again.
 
In her youth, Mary worked as a servant in Carrick-on-Suir. She married Paul Prendergast, a farmer from Kilonerry, on the outskirts of Carrick-on-Suir, in 1931, at the Roman Catholic parish church of Owning. The witnesses to the wedding were John Moore and Bridget Duggan.

In 1932, Mary gave birth to her daughter Mary Pauline, whom she raised at the family home in Three Bridges. In subsequent years, Pauline married Paddy Giles, and the couple moved to Hillcrest Avenue in Piltown. Mary moved with them, and remained living with her daughter's family until her eventual death in 1978.
 
Mary died on 5 MAR 1978. Following her passing two separate announcements were recorded in the Munster Express newspaper, within the same edition on 17 MAR.
