For a long time I have tried to find out the family connection between Sr. Theodora (Marion Diggins daughter of Arthur and Annie Laurie Murphy Diggins)and my grandfather William J. Delaney of Gloucester. He always called her his cousin but I never knew the lineage. I feel it must be through the Murphys as his mother was Agnes Murphy daughter of James and Bridget Downey Murphy. James's mother was Ruth Hawley daughter of Matthew Hawley and Chloe Barnes. Bridget's sister Catherine Downey married John Murphy and another sister Elizabeth married Peter Murphy. I've been told that John, James and Peter were brothers. I'm not sure who Annie Laurie Murphy's parents or grandparents were. Or perhaps it another Murphy branch. To be truthful it's all very confusing. If anyone has any information to help me clear this up I would be very grateful. If you perfer to contact via email, please do. Thanks Margo
