This is another extended family member that I need to do more research on - so if you are a McMillan with Murphy roots - I want to hear from you.

Michael and Ellen made their home and farmed in O'Neill, Nebraska and had four children.

Lawrence married Margaret Elizabeth Murphy [1081] (1868-1957), my great-grandaunt in September 1892 in Puyallup, Washington (both the Shaughnessy and Murphy families started out in Ireland and immigrated to the USA - the Shaughnessy family moved from New York to Illinois to Nebraska and settled in Washington; the Murphy family moved from New York to Missouri and settled in Nebraska - some of the Murphy children moved on and settled in Washington). Lawrence and Maggie made their home in Pierce County, Washington and had six children.

Peter William Walsh [3926] was baptized on this date in 1873 in Kings Cove, Bonavista, Newfoundland (I have not found his birth record yet and do not have any information on his family). In 1900 in Open Hall, Newfoundland, Peter married Anne Keough [179] (1869-unknown), my great grandaunt. Peter and Anne made their home in Plate Cove East, Newfoundland and had four children. (If you are a Walsh with Plate Cove East roots - I want to hear from you.)
