Good afternoon,

I am a coadmin of the Murphy DNA project at FamilytreeDNA and am looking for any Murphy men whose Murphy ancestors may have lived around Bandon, Dunmanway, or Innishannon. I am hoping some of you may be willing to take a Y DNA test and join the Murphy DNA project at FamilytreeDNA.

My 3rd great grandfather Thomas Murphy 1822-1877 and two older siblings were born at Derrynasafagh, Dunmanway Parish. I believe the oldest siblings may have been born in or near Bandon. One of the oldest brothers James Murphy's death notice said he was a native of Bandon among the early settlers of New Bandon, New Brunswick. Family settled in New Bandon circa 1826.

  • Hi Kevin, 

    You might try getting in touch with Bandon Historical society museum http://bandonhistoricalmuseum.org/. They might be able to put you in touch with local genealogy experts or indeed some Murphys that might be interested! 

    Also, I can see that the Historic Graves website has uploaded surveys of two graveyards in Bandon. https://historicgraves.com/graveyards-map. Perhaps a search of these graveyards for Murphys may help you triangulate ancestors in your search.

    Good luck!
