My maternal, grandfather was Joseph Mclaren Murphy, born1877,Carluke, Scotland. He married Marion Craig Brodie(b. Dalserth Scotland c. 1886) in 1913,Ontario,Canada.

Joseph McLaren Murphy's father was William Murphy

His Mother was Mary Orr

Most Murphy's are Irish,,,that's ok,,,Im also am O'Toole,,,,,but  just wondering if there are any SCOTTISH Murphy's out there.

Thankyou,,,,this is a lovely ,caring , and helpful site

Hi Julie,

Thankyou for responding Julie,

,,,the average time it takes to travel from  Carluke to Glasgow (today) by train is 38 minutes.,,,,so who knows,,,anyway you're the closest to a 'cousin' I've been able to find in Joseph McLaren Murphy's line.

  Someday I'll connect with him I 'know' I will but today when I look at a 'fan chart' and all my other 3 grandparents  lines are filled in and Joseph Mc Laren Murphy has only his father William Murphy and  his Mother Mary Orr and the rest is blank.,,,

,when I see all that empty space on the fan chart  I visualize having it filled in some day

Thankyou again,,,,you don't happen to have a 'McLaren' somewhere in your family tree do you?

Where were the 'Craigs' from?
