Finding Murphy's is like looking for that proverbial needle in a haystack. Michael was born in Ireland about 1833 and was living in Stratford, Perth, Ontario when he married in 1861. His civil marriage record names his parents but does not say whether they are alive or deceased, in Ireland or Canada and no mention of a county in Ireland has been found to date.
