Does anyone have access to IL vital records? I haven't been able to find this info online.
Michael Murray married Catheine Ward, both of Ireland, around 1870. They lived in Bloomington for the 1880 census, & subsequently moved to Boston. I think they married in IL, but can't be sure. Both should have been in US for 1870 census, but I can't positively id them. I don't think they married in Ireland, as it appears they immigrated a few years apart.
Most of their children were supposedly born in Bloomington: Mary Elizabeth Celia (b. 1871), Daniel (b. 1875), Catherine (b. 1877), Anna Anastasia (b. 1879), Michael Joseph (b. 1882), & Elizabeth Madeleine (b. 1885). Their youngest son, John Henry, was born in Boston in 1889.
I want to add that I have already exhausted online resources, I was looking for someone who had access to vital records offline somewhere. Also, if it's at all helpful, I have a tree on Ancestry of this family. http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/31573374/person/18081087135
