Bridget ROONEY, born Ireland married Patrick MURPHY, born Ireland. They are Georgeann's GGG-Grandparents. Their son John W. MURPHY was born 11 Aug 1826 - 13 Sep 1909. He married Eleanor WHITE and lived in Springfield, Ohio. I recall a note that Eleanor could not read-which wouldn't be unusual for the time. I would love to have more information such as whether Bridget and Patrick came to the U.S., which port, where they lived in Ireland, etc.
Rooney's Island is in Donegal Bay between the town of Donegal and the Strand Forest.
