Ellen Murphy And Her Children

The older lady (seated) is Ellen (Davey) Murphy. She is surrounded by all her children*. So far we know the young woman in the back on the left is Sarah Agnes. It is suspected that the woman in the back on the very right is Mary.  [Photograph probably taken in Detroit, Michigan].

A big thank you to Kathleen who sent the photo and provided the information.

*The children:

  1. Has Children Ellen Murphy b: Jul 1859 in Canada
  2. Has No Children Timothy Murphy b: 1858 in Canada
  3. Has Children Mary Murphy b: 11 May 1863 in Simcoe, Ontario, Canada
  4. Has Children Patrick Henry Murphy b: 19 Mar 1861 in Canada
  5. Has No Children Catherine Murphy b: 1865 in Canada
  6. Has No Children James Murphy b: 1867 in Canada
  7. Has No Children John Murphy b: 1870 in Canada
  8. Has Children Daniel Murphy b: Oct 1874 in Canada
  9. Has Children Sarah Agnes Murphy b: Nov 1876 in Canada
There are five male children listed above and six males in the photo -- son-in-laws, or am I missing a son?

If anyone can verify who is whom (or wants to make an educated guess!), please post a comment.

The oldest child, Ellen Murphy, is my grandkids' 3rd great-grandmother.

Update:  The person who sent the photo to me said that I was missing a son, Thomas (1870-1909); and also that the picture was showing a broken link -- hopefully it's fixed (October 14th).
