Nellie Clohosey Murphy (1884 - 1956) and William J. Murphy (1878 - 1954) take a 1910 family photo outside their Canton-Potsdam Road farm, still standing half-way between the two towns. Posing with them are the first three of 12 children the couple would have: Paul Francis Murphy (1906 - 1976), Irene Patricia Murphy (who later married James O'Brien in Crary Mills) (1908 - 1973) and Clarence Leo Murphy (1910 - 1930). Next came Grace (Murphy) Connelly (1911 - 2004); Barbara (Murphy) Burkett (1914 - 1959); Clarice (Murphy) Murray (1916 - 1980); William (1919 - 1967); Wilson (1919 - 1944); Daniel (1920 - 1997); Esther (Murphy) Mousaw (1923 - 2000); John (1925 - 1998); and Margaret (Murphy) Egan (1929 - 1992). Photo submitted by Kay (Connelly) Hassett, Potsdam, daughter of Grace, and granddaughter of Nellie and William.
