New November 3, 2011:

Hi again, Al: 

After reading your note with the southern Ontario Fitzwilliam list, I realized that I had a photo of a real FW émigré: the attached 
photo is of John Murphy, listed on the (also attached) FW emigration sheet with his parents, Patrick Murphy and Julia / Judy Dobbs. 
They settled initially in Kitley, and then moved to Oro, just outside Barrie, Ontario.

John is shown with his wife, Catherine Tighe, who was born in Monaseed, just over the border from Parkmore in County Wexford.
