Hayes, Murphy and Healy families come together with the second marriage of Patrick Hayes Sr and Mary Murphy.
From Patrick’s second marriage record we learn his parents were Peter Hayes and Mary Scanlon.1
*Peter Hayes and Mary Scanlon
Unfortunately a marriage record for Peter and Mary was not found, though I did find baptismal records for the following children:
- Margaret b. 10 Jul 18342
- Elizabeth b. 14 Oct 18373
- Peter b. 1 July 18414
- Patrick b. 1 Feb 18425
- Catherine b. 1 Aug 18486
- Michael b. 1 Aug 18507
Mary Murphy is the child of Edmund / Edward Murphy and Mary Healy.8
*This is the family that I am most interested in, as they lived through the famine. Hopefully, I will be able to spend some more time to see what else I can find regarding the family at that time.
Edmund / Edward Murphy and Mary Healy
They were married 14 Sep 1873 at Church of Michael the Archangel, in Ballylongford, County Kerry and had the following children:9
