Christopher Murphy (Great Grandad) is a brick wall of the tree, can you help? [closed]

+4 votes

We know that Dad was the son of a Christopher Murphy and Elizabeth, who had a son Christopher near the beginning of the 13 children they had. (dad and 12 others from what we have for info.)

Christopher's father was a Christopher also and he was married also to an Elizabeth. The nearest we can figure out is that the younger is married to Elizabeth Alloway. We are finding information that puts the older with Elizabeth Griffiths. (Alloway sounds correct to family I have spoke to) No one knows for sure it is Griffiths but that seems the most logical.

If anyone knows this to be correct and knows more family info before this, we would be so thankful to hear from you. We know that everyone who remembers the farthest back only remember everyone being in the Cardiff, Wales area. We have found other links that prove they had come from other places but this part of the tree does not seem to move back before this.


Anything that may set us on even a slow roll would be very wonderful and we would be very thankful.
