I'm blood related to a MARGARET PRENTICE (my GG Grandmom), b abt 1813 inN Ire. Married in Co Down by Rev JAMES COLLINS who history puts at Dromore 1st Presbyterian. March 31, 1844 she wed HUGH MURPHY ( my paternal GG Granddad). DOCs in US archives prove eligibility for a Civil War widow. Her Brooklyn, NY Church did the correspondence. KIDS: ANNIE MURPHY b. 1846 in Williamsburg (now BROOKLYN), Kings County, New York, USA John MURPHY b. 7 Dec 1848 in Brooklyn. MARGARET ( Maggie) b. in Brooklyn, in 1852. Family moved to Philadelphia, PA 1861. HUGH enlisted in the army & son JOHN joined 3 years later & was Sergeant by age 16. No luck tracing the two daughters. JOHNs large Family included a son "J Prentice Murphy", a major player in the Child Welfare movement after WW1 and is still mentioned in College text books though he died in 1936. The #1 Prentice through #6 on this Site, from Dromore, Co Down in the mid 1800s have got to be related to my MARGARET IMO. Any help appreciated! MIKE FOGARTY
