This biography of Anna Dunphy might help with my search of who were the real parents of my Mary Dunphy. I have two different sets so far:
William Dunphy and Mary Brown in the Ossory diocese, St Mary’s Parish in Kilkenny City. Then there is James, wife unintelligible, in the Ossory diocese, Oning and Templeorum parish. Both in 1804. I am leaning towards William and Mary because of the location of Kilkenny City. Mary went on to marry Lawrence Mullins, of Flemingstown, Kilkenny. Their children were born in Glenmore. Nicholas, Thomas, Patrick and Mary. Eventually some of the the Mullins family wound up in Brooklyn, NY. My quest is find the correct Dunphy parents in Kilkenny.
I had my DNA tested at Ancestry and I’m waiting to find other cousins, hopefully living in Ireland, who know their Dunphy tree, to do the same.
