In Reply to: Murphy-Thompson by Mary Moody of 1810

The WWI draft card for Fred Murphy (wife Ada) of Murrysville, Westmoreland County, PA shows he was born Oct 22, 1878.

The 1930 census of East McKeesport, Allegheny County, PA includes Fred Murphy 51, Adda 51 and Margaret 13.

The 1920 census, same location, shows Fred Murphy 41, Adda 40, Grace 12, born in Wisconsin, Walter 9, Rosanna 6, Margaret 3 11/12. Fred and Adda are listed as the in-laws of John H. Kunkel 47 and his wife Margaret 46 (Fred or Adda's sister?).

The 1910 census of North Versailles Twp., Allegheny County, PA shows Fred Murphey 31, Adda N. 30 and Grace A. 2 born in WI. They were married 3 years.

The 1900 census of Coal Center, Washington County, PA shows a Fred Murphy, born Oct 1878 as the son of William, born April 1842 and Hester born July 1843.

The 1900 census of Pittsburgh shows an Addie M. Thompson, born Dec 1880 as the daughter of the widowed Elvira, born Nov 1855.

For Huntingdon County I suggest contacting the Huntingdon County Historical Society to see if they can help you.
