Hi everyone. My name is Paul Joseph Murray. I've started tracing my roots. I'm meeting some lovely people and family members related to me. I decided a forum would be in order so we could all share our stories. Emma Redmond of Dublin prompted me actually.

My father was Paul Joseph Murray. His father was Herbert W Murray:
"WILLIAM
SPENCER MURRAY" was baptised WILLIAM HERBERT MURRAY"
William Herbert
went by the name of Herbert W Murray. He immigrated from Newry to
Montreal, where he attended grade school. He is discussed in greater
detail in another document."

Herbert was the son of Hugh Murray whose father was Captain Joseph Murray of Newry.

I will upload a census form from 1920 showing Herb W and family living in Rochester NY USA. That's where I grew up.

Would love to hear from you. Please pass the forum address around.

Okay here goes:

Joseph Murray, born in Liverpool on September 1st 1832/34
Married Mary Lindsay in St. Peters church, Warrenpoint on the 3rd of September 1853..
Witnesses were Hugh Lindsay and Mary O' Hare.

Children are as follows: Hugh 1.5.1855, John 8.9.1857, Elizabeth 19.4.1861, Samuel 1.7.1862, Joseph 10.3.1863, Anne 13.11.1864, Alicia 24.2.1867, Susan 10.3.1869, Mary 19.6.1871, Patrick 16.6.1873, Andrew(MY ANCESTOR) 9.8.1875,
Thomas 17.4.1877 and David 21.10.1879....

Joseph Murray was the Captain of the Dundalk & Newry Steam Packet Company's "Amphion" in 1875.
Previous addresses were Post Office Street, Seaview and Boat Street.

Joseph died age 48 in 38 Chapel Street, Newry. I have a copy of his death Cert but its very hard to read the cause of death.

Here are some other points of information, passed on to me through word of mouth so not sure if its 100% true..
Called Captain Yellow Joe, retired and bought a coal boat and worked the Warrenpoint/Glasgow route. Converted to a Catholic after he got married.

Love to hear from anyone who knows more.

Emma, (Dublin)

Dublin - Joseph Murray's death certificate states the cause of death as "Phthisis pulmonale, 18 months certified". I understand that phthisis pulmonale is another name for tuberculosis, and presumably he was known to have been suffering from it for 18 months.

I am coming to Ireland Aug 23 to the 30th. I plan to visit both Warrenpoint and Newry. Is there there a pub to meet at? Can you meet me? I would also very much like to meet anyone else who is interested in the family.

Thanks and Regards
Paul Joseph Murray

BTW my email is paul.ny.Murray@gmail.com
