I am looking for information about my greatgrand fathers family. Peter Murphy b. in 1858 in Drishanebeg a district outside Skibbereen. Peters parents were Jeremiah Murphy and Catherine Shea. Listed on Peter's baptismal record as his sponsors were Jeremiah Collins and Mary Shea. Peter had one brother Patrick who stayed at the farm in Drishanebeg. Peter immigrated in 1882 to Philadelphia. I have been told that he immigrated with four brothers but I have had no luck finding them. I have found one of his sisters Catherine living in Philadelphia in 1890. I believe the Murphys were related to the Collins family. I have found a baby named Jeremiah Collins buried in the Murphy family plot in Philadelphia. I would be greatful for any help. Thank you.
