Vincent A. Brophy 1922 to 1986
John Brophy DOB 1793 married Ellen Conway DOB 1797 both were from Kilkenny, Ireland they are my great great great grandparents. I live in Maine USA
I'm looking for more information about my Brophy family. My 4th GG William Brophy was born in Ireland in 1788. At some point he ended up in Knox County Virginia married to Ellen Brennan from Maryland and had Daniel in 1833, John in 1834 and George in 1835. I'd like to know where he was from, who his parents are, when he came to America and why...for starters. Thanks!!
My family lived mainly in Kentucky. I am looking for anyone who may have been related to Libeas Lily Brophy, who was born in Indiana in 1828. He was married to a Sophia Gregory and a Ruth Ann Mussets. If anyone out there has any information regarding him and his ancestors, please let me know.
