“The Murphy’s”   Christmas 1936
I will guess that these are children of Joan and Jimmie Murphy, (edited Children of Jerome and Mary) the oldest one born in 1929 maybe..I will guess the kids ages at 7, 5 and 3..just a guess.  What do you think? two boys and a girl or two girls and a boy?
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come againSmile

Update from grandmavickieann:

1940 Census - Jerome and Mary Murphy living in Mandan, ND. Three children: Mary Joan, 11, James, 9, Margaret, 7.

  1. I think two "bookend" girls.

    No luck ID'ing the Murphy's though...

  6. Joan Murphy Bogan is my mother! Yes, she is the one on the left. Her brother Jim is in the middle and Peggy is on the right. My mom was born in 1928 so she was eight in this picture, Jim was six and Peggy four. All three are now deceased. They did live in Mandan in this picture moving to Fargo around 1945. My mom stayed here the rest of her life. After college Jim settled in Lacrosse Wisconsin. Peggy lived out east for a short time and then settled in the Fargo -Moorhead area. Thanks for reaching out to me Connie!
