  2. Greetings from Door County, Wisconsin. A group of us will be heading to Ireland April 1, 2017 and will be taking a tour of Millstreet. Our excursion is through NACTA. I have a keen interest in your town as my Great Grandfather was born there. He emigrated to Jersey City, NJ which is where I was born. He is shown on the Registry of Births as follows: Births Registered in the District and Union of Millstreet: Jeremiah Murphy, son of Cornelius (farmer) and Julia Callaghan on the 13 December, 1873. Curragraigue Dromtariffe. He married Margaret Dineen but I’m not sure if that was before he left Ireland. Any help would be greatly appreciated. See you soon!
