Friday's Photo: Said to be Mary Rourke

If you have looked at my genealogy website, you may have seen this photo. A copy of this was sent to me by a Murray family descendant who stated it was said to be Mary Rourke. Mary Rourke and Patrick Murray, of Ballyvelaghan in County Clare, were the parents of James Murray. James was the father of my husband's grandmother, Susan Murray. 

Very little has been found about Mary Rourke Murray. Her parents are currently unknown and her birth and death dates have not been found. 

If any descendants of this family have a similar picture or have information about Mary or her husband Patrick, please share!

Birth record for James Murray - November 1, 1851
