Catherine A. Norton Murphy

Catherine A. Norton (1851-1913) Murphy

Michael Norton (c1825-?) and Bridget Mulligan (c1825-?).

She was born in 1851 in Ireland.

She came to the United States around 1875 and lived in Boston, Massachusetts.

She married Patrick J. Murphy (1852-1922) on February 11, 1878 in Boston.

Mary J. Murphy (1879-1943) who was a bookkeeper; John Murphy (1881-1895) who died as a youth at age 14; James Murphy (1882-?); Thomas Francis Murphy (1885-1969) who was born on June 13, 1885 in Scituate, Massachusetts and he died in San Francisco, California on March 8, 1969; and Catherine E. Murphy (1888-?).

She died on March 18, 1913 in Boston, Massachusetts.

She was buried in Mount Cavalry Cemetery in Boston.

I was going through Familysearch on Monday, July 18, 2011 and searched in the database for any Mulligan - Norton children or marriages, and the result was James T. Norton (1849-1898) and Catherine A. Norton (1851-1913) of Boston, Massachusetts. The dates fit perfectly as a sibling of Patrick Norton. Patrick came from Boston and was naturalized in Boston according to a photocopy of a naturalization record that was passed down in the family. The connection to our Michael Norton (c1825-?) and Bridget Mulligan (c1825-?) is still tentative. There is no document that ties James T. Norton and Catherine A. Norton (1851-1913) Murphy to Patrick J. Norton. The only evidence is the name of the parents. I called the cemetery on Tuesday, July 19, 2011 and the said she was buried with John Murphy age 14 who died March 25, 1895; and Thomas Murphy on March 12, 1969 at age 84.
