James Murphy 1896 Ballinalee Co.Longford
I am trying to research my family tree. My grandfather was born in Ballinalee in 1896, his parents were called Peter and Kathleen. He had 2 sisters and 4 brothers and was the youngest.
Unfortunately he was involved in the troubles and was sentenced to death in Cork. Somehow he got himself to England where he changed his name to Jack McAvoy and never contacted his family again.

I am told all this information is correct but have struggled to find any information at all, so it may well be wrong. If anyone can help in my search I would be gratefull.
