Hannah Minnehane and Thomas Murphy were born in different parts of County Cork and came separately from Ireland to Staten Island, met here, were married around 1898 and had 9 children. On a City Sanitation Department salary, they were able to buy their house at 92 Newberry Avenue in December 1919. Their home became our Murphy Homestead. We celebrate three generations, one hundred years, of Murphys living at “92”. Our memories keep their spirit alive. Following his parent’s death their son John and wife Gladys bought the house where they raised six children and shared the homestead with an expanding Murphy family. Tom Murphy, son of John and Gladys, is now master and host. This collection of essays gives testimony to his hospitality, generosity and our commitment to remember where we come from.
