Dr. Joseph Murphy and his wife Mary Frances Briggs Muphy

28 Jun

Dr. Joseph MurphyJoseph was born August 23, 1818 in Clones, County Monaghan, Ireland.  He died September 15, 1890 in Taunton, Massacusetts. Before he moved to America he was married to Ellen McManus.  She passed away and they had no children.



Mary Francis BriggsMary Frances Briggs Murphy was born on October 18, 1835 and died January 24, 1903. She died of Pneumonia and at the time of her death lived at 58 School St. in Taunton.



I do not have the date of there marriage.  There is speculation that this union was very upsetting to Mary’s father because of the age difference.

There is a Celtic cross in Old St. Mary’s Cemetary that Mary had erected for Joseph.
