Murphy - Barbados

Postby dsmurphyn » Sat Dec 11, 2010 5:28 pm

CORRECTION TO POST: I recently learned that My great-grandfather's last name may or may not have been MURPHY. My great-grandmother's maiden name was apparently Murphy and James Murphy was her brother. I have received helpful information, and am trying to confirm details about there origin in Barbados. JAMES MURPHY was born in Barbados about 1880, immigrated to New York/ Philadelphia about 1911, he died possibly in the 1950's in Philadelphia. FRANK and JAMES were railroad blacksmiths. James' sister LOUISE MURPHY was born in Barbados about 1890. She immigrated to New York/ Philadelphia between 1911-1914. She lived mostly in Philadelphia, PA and died in Norristown PA about 1977. ANY information on Frank ?, James or Louise Murphy and who they were related to in Barbados would still be appreciated! Frank and Lousie's only son was my grandfather James Lewis Murphy.

Original post: Looking for info on my great grandfather,FRANK MURPHY, possibly born in Barbados, British West Indies, DIED about 1917. Frank is sometimes listed as having been born in New York. He died (in New York?) following complications from a work-related accident about 1917. Frank's brother JAMES MURPHY was born in Barbados about 1880, immigrated to New York/ Philadelphia about 1911, he died possibly in the 1950's in Philadelphia. FRANK and JAMES were railroad blacksmiths. FRANK's wife LOUISE MURPHY was born in Barbados about 1890, I do not have a maiden name. She immigrated to New York/ Philadelphia between 1911-1914. She lived mostly in Philadelphia, PA and died in Norristown PA about 1977. ANY information on Frank, James or Louise Murphy and who they were related to in Barbados would be SO MUCH appreciated! Some census list their nationality as 'British' or 'English". Frank and Lousie's only son was my grandfather James Lewis Murphy, and he did not like to talk much about family.
