  • Notes 
    • Best clue as to the spelling of her last name (Murchy) is on the 1900 Census - two boarders in her home are Peter and George Murchy - ages 36 and 24 respectively. (brothers possibly, but they give PA as the birth of their father, whereas she gives Ireland).  A Peter Murchy, age 6, also appears on the 1870 census living in the Arsenal with his sister Margaret, age 5.

      From letter (on file) from Dolores Stevenson dated 26 September 1985 to Susan Boyer Howell:

      "Margaret Elizabeth Murchie Carlin 1866-1905? Approx?? Her children were, in order, Ralph, Edith, William, Florence and Elizabeth (Bess)!  Se suffered in her thirties from what was called "Galloping Consumption" (actually tuberculosis), and died when Edith was 13 or 14, Ralph  bit older, and all the others only little children.  They were then raised by a housekeeper, Miss Edell, I was told.  I'm not sure of the year John married Rachel' ["Aunt Ray" but the youngest ones loved her, and the older ones resented her, which is what you would expect!" [11, 12]
