Murphy Sources

This is a major work-in-progress. Feel free to contact me if you would like the source information or have any questions.  I’m working hard to properly cite the Murphy page using the guidelines of Evidence!, but it might take a while.

Additional notes are in green italics.

1. “Mrs. Margaret Patterson,” clipping from unnamed newspaper.

2. 1920 U.S. census, Mahoning County, Ohio, population schedule, Youngstown, ward 2, p. 9-189 (stamped), enumeration district (ED)166, sheet 2-B, dwelling 35, family 43, Margaret Patterson; digital image, Ancestry.com (http://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=6061 : accessed 16 March 2012); citing NARA microfilm publication T9, roll 1414.

3. 1930 U.S. census, Mahoning County, Ohio, population schedule, Youngstown, ward 2, ED 19, sheet 2-A, dwelling 21, family 30, Margaret Patterson; digital image, Ancestry.com (http://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=6224 : accessed 16 March 2012); citing NARA microfilm publication T626, roll 1843.
