William Harper of New York, Connecticut, and Quebec

Surnames: Harper, Murphy, Gray, Thompson
I'm having a bit of trouble finding the family of William Harper and his wife Elizabeth Murphy. I can find two daughters of this union:
Mary Elizabeth Harper born 2 June 1839 in Norwich, Connecticut
Margaret Jane Harper born abt 1840 in "New York"

Mary married a James Gray and had several children in Portneuf, Quebec. In the 1901 Census of Canada she gave 1846 as her immigration year. She eventually died in 1929 in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, where she gave the birthplace of her parents as New York and England.

Margaret shows up in a marriage record with her second husband, Felix Thompson. Her first husband looks to have had a surname like Hume or Dunne, I can't really read it. They are being married in Leeds, Ontario. I don't know anything else about her, but the informant of her sister Mary's death certificate was a "F.H.Thompson, Jr." so they likely had a son together also named Felix.

Thanks for any help... this one is currently stumping me.
