     Patrick Murnane was born circa 1790 in Dromcomogue Townland, County Limerick, Ireland. He married Ann Adams on 14 February 1831 in St. Ailbe's Church, Emly, County Tipperary, Ireland; Sponsors for the marriage were Thomas Adams and John Neill.1
     Patrick Murnane witnessed the marriage of Johanna Murnane and Darby Day on 6 November 1841 in St. Ailbe's Church, Emly, County Tipperary, Ireland; The couple were married "in the presence of" James Murnane (Johanna's brother), Patrick Murnane, Johanna's brother and his wife Hannah Adams.2 Patrick Murnane was listed as a godparent at the baptism of Ellen Day on 10 August 1843 in Milltown, Aglishcormick, County Limerick, Ireland; Ellen's godparents were Patrick Murnane and Catherine Bartley.3 Patrick Murnane immigrated on 18 December 1849 to New York, New York, United States; Also listed in the record traveling with Patrick's family was a Widow Murnane (aged 54), her son Patrick (aged 20), and Margaret (aged 14). This is Nora Keaffe, widow of James Murnane. We assume that Patrick's other sons, John, Patrick and James, had died before 1849. His daughters, Mary, Ann and Elizabeth, may have died or may have married before 1849. Also listed is Michael Murnane: this person is not the son of Patrick and Ann, but rather the son of Michael and Julia English Murnane, Patrick's nephew.4 He appeared on the census of 3 September 1850 in East Bloomfield Township, Ontario County, New York, United States; Michael Murnane is probably not the son of Patrick and Ann Murnane, but rather the son of Thomas and Johanna Malone Murnane.5 He purchased land in Henry, Marshall County, Illinois, United States on 12 March 1858. Patrick purchased three lots (32, 33, and 34) in the Davis Addition in Henry between March 12, 1858 and May 29, 1858. These three lots immediately abutted the land owned by Darby Day (lot 31).6 He appeared on the census of 4 June 1860 in Henry, Marshall County, Illinois, United States.7 He sold land in Henry, Marshall County, Illinois, United States on 18 March 1874. Patrick sold three lots (32, 33, and 34) in the Davis Addition in Henryto Bridget Hopper on March 18, 1874. Note that Bridget Hopper is Patrick's daughter. The "sale" may have been a transfer of property have the death of her parents.8
