Joseph Laphen (c.1851) married Mary McArdle
and had children:
Mary (Molly) Laphen b. 1877
Patrick Laphen 1881
John Laphen 1882/3
Anne Laphen 1882
James Laphen 1887
They lived in Dublin and had a butcher's shop in Moore Street. Mary immigrated to New York (1914) and Anne followed with her family (1923). At least one of the brothers went to Canada after that.
Always pronounced the name with a "p" sound as in Lappin.
Molly always insisted they had a French origin and pronounced it with a French accent.
Would like to hear from anyone with this name.
