Hello,

Dtctygrl,Mashugruskie,Stosh,Zu lu_warrior,Mikeg
(27 months after),Frankg,Gnome,

It is an fantastic work that you make.
I think sometime that this research is "needle in a haystack" (I learnt a English proverb).

My past is painful, the past of my parents too.

It is wonderful and very comforting to read you.
(Detroit is some my past that I ever don't know ).

Do you think that I must full in Standard Form 180 for one William Murphy, which and How?

I have a brother, but we have no contact.

Thank you again
More soon.
Cordially.
Mary

I am sorry that you have no contact with your brother. I forgot to ask how are you related to your grandfather, is it through your mother's or father's side of the family? It would be important for DNA analysis if you were to have a direct line of men from your grandfather, to another male who is alive today.

Below is a machine translation into English, I hope it helps you understand a little.
Ci-dessous est une traduction en anglais, j'espère que cela vous aide à comprendre un peu.

Je suis désolé que vous n'avez aucun contact avec votre frère. J'ai oublié de vous demander comment sont liés à votre grand-père, est-ce par le biais de votre mère ou du père de la famille? Il serait important pour l'analyse de l'ADN si vous êtes d'avoir une ligne directe, d'hommes de votre grand-père, à un autre homme qui est vivant aujourd'hui.

Hello Stosh,
My grandfather William is the father of my father René (Germaine Chapus is his mother).
I have one (only) brother of René and my mother.
I know that DNA analysis were (make?) with male line. But I have only one brother. And I can not contact him. Sorry!
Thank you very much, again.
More soon.

Mary_murphy,

My advice would be to
1) submit SF-180
2) wait for a reply from the military records archive.

If the reply indicates that Private First Class William Murphy could have been in Limoges during October, November or December 1918, then
3) write to a Murphy family member in Michigan.

Please send me an e-mail so that I can respond and offer assistance in private. Please find my e-mail address here.

En français, l'aide de Google Translate:

Mon conseil serait de
1) présenter SF-180
2) d'attendre une réponse de la part des militaires archive.

Si la réponse indique que le soldat de première classe William Murphy aurait pu être à Limoges pendant Octobre, Novembre et Décembre 1918, puis
3) écrire à un membre de la famille Murphy dans le Michigan.

S'il vous plaît envoyez-moi un e-mail pour que je puisse répondre, et offrir de l'aide dans le secteur privé. S'il vous plaît trouver mon adresse e-mail ici.

Mary_murphy,

I am willing to fill out and send the SF-180 for you. However, I would like to have your e-mail address so that we can communicate easier. Please send me an e-mail. You may write in French and I will translate your words. I only took French classes for two years and it is "rusty", so I must also rely on Google Translate.

Je suis prêt à remplir et envoyer le SF-180 pour vous. Toutefois, je voudrais avoir votre adresse e-mail afin que nous puissions communiquer plus facilement. S'il vous plaît envoyez-moi un e-mail. Vous mai à écrire en français et je vais traduire vos mots. J'ai seulement pris des cours de français pour deux ans et il est "rouillé", donc je doit également compter sur Google Translate.

As an amateur genealogist (since 1983), I really have to say this group is amazing and wonderful for the way you have helped Mary. It's especially remarkable since this is not primarily a genealogy message board. Even though I have no connection to Mary, I really have to thank all that have helped and are still helping her. You guys rock!!!

In fact,on January 15, 1973, Nixon announced the suspension of offensive action against North Vietnam.
It is nearly the end of this war?...
And many people were against this war in the world.

My selection of 36 years ago was because in November 1972 there was a Presidential Election between Richard Nixon and George McGovern. I was still a college student and I became eligible to vote for the very first time in that election. At that time, young men were still being drafted to serve in the war and my "world-view" was very narrowly focused. Also, just prior to that election, details about the "Watergate" burglary were becoming known, including the possibility of a cover-up by Nixon.

Ma sélection de 36 ans, car il ya en Novembre 1972 il ya eu une élection présidentielle entre Richard Nixon et George McGovern. J'étais encore étudiant et je suis devenu le droit de voter pour la première fois dans cette élection. À ce moment-là, les jeunes hommes étaient toujours en cours d'élaboration à servir dans la guerre et ma "vision du monde" est très concentré. Aussi, juste avant cette élection, les détails sur le "Watergate" cambriolage deviennent connus, y compris la possibilité d'une couverture en place par Nixon.

Hello Dtctygrl,

Mikeg asked more informations of William, my grandmother and my father to fill in a "standard 180" and to send it.

And I wrote on his "e-mail":

Hello Mike,

I am happy to read you.

I would like write in English ( first) to training.. And after, I will write in French for that you better understand me

My father named René was born on July 28 1919 in Poitiers ( Haute Vienne) not in Limoges.

His mother named Germaine Catherine Chapus was born on May 15 1897 in Limoges

My father told me that William was auto mechanic and he came from Detroit. He was tall, blond -red hair, beautiful ! (of course) His parents or grandparents were Irish ( I think that William spoke a little French).

It is all that I know.

Thank you very much again.



In French:

Je suis heureuse de vous lire.

Mon père (René) est né le 28 juillet 1919 à Poitiers (Haute Vienne) et non à Limoges.

Sa mère Germaine Catherine Chapus est née le 15 mai 1897 à Limoges.

Mon père m'a dit que William était mécanicien auto et qu’il venait de Détroit. Il était grand, il avait les cheveux blond roux,Il était beau !!.
Ses parents étaient irlandais.

Thank you (Dtctygrl) for your kindness.
More soon.

The Standard Form 180 is in today's outgoing mail.

Here is William P. Murphy's Draft Registration Card and 1930 US Census record.

After the war, this William P. Murphy married and lived in Saginaw, MI, where he worked as a railroad brakeman. He married and in 1930 he and his wife are shown with a four year old adopted son. William died on Aug. 30, 1969 in Saginaw, according to a user-submitted family tree I found on Ancestry.com.

We will now have to wait and see what information we will receive back from the National Archives. In the meantime, it would be prudent for us to continue searching to see if we can find another William Murphy who would match more of the information Mary_murphy was told about her grandfather.


Le SF-180 est dans le mail.

Voici William P. Murphy 's Le projet de carte d'enregistrement et de recensement des Etats-Unis 1930 record.

Après la guerre, ce William P. Murphy marié et a vécu dans de Saginaw, MI, où il a travaillé comme un chemin de fer freineur. Il se marie et dans le recensement de 1930, lui et sa femme ont un fils qui est né quatre ans plus tôt. William est décédé le 30 août 1969 à Saginaw, en fonction d'un utilisateur soumis arbre j'ai trouvé sur Ancestry.com.

Nous allons maintenant nous devons attendre et voir ce que nous recevrons l'information des Archives nationales. Dans l'intervalle, il serait prudent pour nous de poursuivre la recherche pour voir si nous pouvons trouver un autre William Murphy, qui serait une meilleure adéquation de l'information a Mary_murphy sur son grand-père.

Thank you very much Mikeg, for all your help. I looked at the draft registration card and the census record. I found both similarities and differences between this William and what my father told me. (differences being city, occupation and hair color, but I understand that there could be explanations for these differences) So we'll wait for more information from the SF-180. In the meantime, yes, let's continue to look for another William Murphy, in case.

Thank you again to you all who have been helping me search! You can't imagine how exciting and comforting this is for me!

MikeG, thanks for posting those documents. Fantastic work.

Wm P. Murphy owns a pretty nice house for 1930 with a price of $4500 and lives in a neighborhood with other "workers" like brick masons, construction, etc. I also noticed that William is 35 years and was married for the first time at age 29, whereas Marie is 28 and was married for the first time at age 19.

That means that Willaim and Marie were married sometime in 1924 and adopted little 4 year old William after the marriage. Meaning that little William was not a result of Marie's first marriage. Moreover, on the census form, it shows that the parentage of Little William is "unknown".

On the subject of parentage. It shows that William Sr's folks are from Ireland, but there is a notation that further identifies their origin as IFS, or Irish Free State. The southern, or Catholic, end of the Emerald Isle.

A google map search shows a Catholic church one block away from their Clinton Street home.

Gnome, thank you very much for message, but I am not sure to all understand.
The last post has been written by my American teacher with me.
Now, I am reading your post, but my American teacher is not here( with me).

I understand that (with your message and Draft Registration Card and 1930 US Census record):
The son of William and Marie had been adopted. But we can not know if he has had other child.
The parents of William were Irish (catholic Irish, south of Ireland).
He worked in the mine. He was tall. He had brown hair.
Do I good understand?
But I( we) can not know if this William Murphy is or not the father of my father.

Thank you very much, Gnome, for your help.
More soon.

Information from the family tree I found on Ancestry.com (William P. Murphy was included only because he married into that family):

Name: William P. Sr. Murphy
Gender: Male
Birth: 22 NOV 1893 in Calumet, Houghton Co, Michigan
Marriage: 7 OCT 1929 to Marie R. Walters (Marie was also married to Henry Ewald, no dates or additional information given)
Death: 30 AUG 1969 in Saginaw, Saginaw Co, Michigan
Obituary: 30 AUG 1969 in Saginaw News (B4)
Burial: 1969 in Roselawn Memorial Gardens, Saginaw, Saginaw Co, Michigan
Funeral Home: Deisler
Church: St. Josaphat
Occupation: C & O Railway (40yrs)
Military: WWI


Based on the "age at first marriage" information in the 1930 US Census, I suspect that their 1929 marriage was a second marriage for both William and Marie.

Information de l'arbre j'ai trouvé sur Ancestry.com (William P. Murphy a été inclus pour la seule raison, il épousa dans cette famille):

Nom: William P. Sr. Murphy
Sexe: Homme
Naissance: 22 NOV 1893 à Calumet, Houghton Co, Michigan
Mariage: 7 OCT 1929 à Marie R. Walters (Marie a aussi été mariée à Henry Ewald, pas de dates ou d'autres informations fournies)
Décès: 30 août 1969 à Saginaw, Saginaw Co, Michigan
Avis de décès: 30 Août 1969 à Saginaw News (B4)
Burial: 1969 à Roselawn Memorial Gardens, Saginaw, Saginaw Co, Michigan
Funeral Home: Deisler
Eglise Saint-Josaphat
Profession: C & O Railway (40 ans)
Militaire: la Première Guerre mondiale


Sur la base de "l'âge au premier mariage d'information dans le recensement américain de 1930, je pense que leur mariage est de 1929 un 2e mariage pour les deux William et Marie.

Mikeg,
Thank you very much for your message and the last message of this day in your e-mail.

Hello everyone and thank you too, for your help.

I wonder if there were many (and How many?) “William Murphy” during the First World War who lived in Michigan?

I know that “Murphy” was a frequent name at this time and William too.

Could we find an answer somewhere or could we make a estimate of number this” William Murphy” during this war?

More soon.

I told Mary_murphy in my last e-mail that I would post this query on Ancestry.com's MURPHY surname message board.

I don't want to lose the momentum we had established while we wait for a response from the National Archives on William P. Murphy.

When I have some time (hopefully later this weekend), I want to accumulate all of the William Murphy information we have found so far on each individual with that name and create a separate web page with a post here linking to it.

From that and additional searching in the on-line draft records and 1920 and 1930 US census, I hope we can work together to develop a more complete list of every "William Murphy" in the Detroit and surrounding areas who registered for the draft and served in WWI (as indicated in the 1930 US Census records).

Mary_murphy je l'ai dit dans mon dernier e-mail que je poste cette requête sur Ancestry.com 's message board MURPHY nom.

Je ne veux pas perdre l'élan que nous avions mis en place alors que nous attendons une réponse de la Commission nationale sur les archives de William P. Murphy.

Quand j'ai le temps (je l'espère plus tard ce week-end), je tiens à accumuler toutes les informations William Murphy, nous avons trouvé jusqu'à présent sur chaque individu de ce nom et de créer une page Web avec un post ici un lien vers elle.

De ce point supplémentaire et la recherche en ligne des dossiers et le projet de 1920 et 1930 du recensement des États-Unis, j'espère que nous pourrons travailler ensemble pour élaborer une liste plus complète de tous les "William Murphy" dans le Détroit et ses environs qui se sont inscrites pour le projet et servi dans la Première Guerre mondiale (comme indiqué dans le recensement américain de 1930 enregistrements).

I found quite a few on the SSDI who got their SS card in Michigan. Assuming he stayed here until the SS cards were issued, and has now passed away, that might be an option. Now that we have a birth year, it will be easier to nail down. It was 1893, right?

Here's the summary web page I've created to keep track of each individual William Murphy we have found. It does not yet include all of the individuals listed on this thread, I am still adding to it.

Be very careful with Ancestry's family trees. The majority of dates given for the Walter's tree are wrong. Marie's parents were actually married in 1898. Her mother is listed as Florida but her marriage license lists her name as Flora. Since whoever posted the genealogy on Ancestry listed Flora as being born in 1884, this means she was 14 when she married. Marie's parents were married in Mt. Haley, MI in the Roman Catholic Church.

Marie's name is actually Mary and she was born May 4, 1901, Mt. Haley Township, Midland, MI. Her mother is listed as "Freda" on this birth record.

I've been a member of Ancestry since 1999. The family trees are usually unconfirmed and taken from other sites that cannot verify where the information came from.

Your best bet is Familysearch.org using the Beta search for Michigan.

Thank you very much Mashugruskie for this information.

Mikeg,

I looked at the new web page. Wow! You are a great organizer. But I need to clarify...
I'm not sure (100%) that William Murphy was born in 1893 or 1894 and I'm not sure how much older he was than Germaine. Maybe there are other reasons we believe this. I can't remember for sure if it's a known piece of info or just assumed.

Thank you again, Mike.
Cordially.
Mary

Thanks, on behalf of myself and the others who have been working on this.

I've created a continuation of this thread on the new forum using the same thread title - click here to visit it.

The "Searching for William Murphy" summary web page is unaffected by the switch to the new forum and it contains links to both the old and new threads.

Hopefully Mary_murphy will be able to figure out how to register on the new forum. If she has any problems, she can e-mail me privately and I will try to assist her.

Ce fil est le plus intéressant et que vous les gars "rock". J'espère seulement qu'il ne se perd pas dans la masse. Je ne voudrais pas que Mary ne perd pas le bénéfice de tous les gens vous aider.



Merci, au nom de moi-même et les autres qui ont travaillé sur cette question.

J'ai créé une poursuite de ce fil sur le nouveau forum en utilisant le même fil de titre - cliquez ici pour visiter.

Le "la recherche de William Murphy" résumé page web n'est pas affectée par le passage au nouveau forum, et il contient des liens à la fois les anciens et les nouveaux threads.

Espérons que Mary_murphy sera en mesure de savoir comment s'inscrire sur le nouveau forum. Si elle a des problèmes, elle peut l'e-mail moi en privé et je vais essayer de l'aider.

You have to register again. You can use the same name and choose a new password. You will have one for this site and one for the new site. I don't know if you can use the same password for both.

Once you have registered, you will get an e-mail with a link to click before you can post on the new site.

Trying Google Translate:


Vous devez vous enregistrer à nouveau. Vous pouvez utiliser le même nom et choisir un nouveau mot de passe. Vous aurez pour ce site et une pour le nouveau site. Je ne sais pas si vous pouvez utiliser le même mot de passe pour les deux.

Une fois enregistré, vous recevrez un e-mail avec un lien à cliquer avant de pouvoir envoyer sur le nouveau site.
