Murphy-Wylie circa 1880s, Cleveland

Looking for earlier records on Ultan Murphy, circa 1880-1885 in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio.


Ultan Murphy was married April 10, 1885 to Mary Jane WYLIE, daughter of Patrick H. Wylie and by 1890, he was living at 7 Campbell Street in Cleveland. In 1901, Ultan moved briefly to Independence Road before settling with second wife Margaret Reynolds in the East 74th Street neighborhoods on Claasen and Covert avenues, before Ultan died July 25, 1917.(Tertiary questions: When did Ultan's separation event with Mary Jane Wylie occur? How? Did Mary J. Wylie die or was it simply a divorce? (Ultan remarried about 1902.) Also, until about 1897, Patrick H. Wylie was seen listed in Cleveland city directories as a carpenter. When did he die?)

Already have visited Murphy's Public House website and corresponded with Dennis Murphy, that site's webmaster.

My Gencircles family tree includes 1900 census information on Ultan's family, but since there is no complete 1890 census, and since I have not found a street listing for Ultan circa 1880, I think he was still living with family and was about 32 or at least 21 years old in 1880. So does any Murphys from Cleveland have a child in their family circa 1880 named Ultan?

Ultan is also listed in some Cuyahoga County records as "Uttum," which I believe is incorrect and based on someone's deciphering of cursive handwriting, such as on the marriage record to Mary Jane Wylie.
