Research[edit | edit source]
- Richard Arthur Norton (1958) writes on July 18, 2011 : "I was going through Familysearch on Monday, July 18, 2011 and searched in the database for any Mulligan - Norton children or marriages and the result was James T. Norton (1849-1898) and Catherine A. Norton (1851-1913) Murphy of Boston, Massachusetts. The dates fit perfectly as a sibling of Patrick J. Norton. Patrick came from Boston and was naturalized in Boston according to a photocopy of a naturalization record that was passed down in the family. The connection to our Michael Norton (c1825-?) and Bridget Mulligan (c1825-?) is still tentative. There is no document that ties James T. Norton and Catherine A. Norton (1851-1913) Murphy to Patrick J. Norton. The only evidence is the name of the parents. I called the cemetery on Tuesday, July 19, 2011 and the said she was buried with John Murphy age 14 who died March 25, 1895; and Thomas Murphy on March 12, 1969 at age 84."
- Richard Arthur Norton (1958) writes I contacted conor0731 of Ancestry.com who is a descendant but communication is not very good. His tree is not well maintained. He wrote on October 9, 2011: "No offense but I abhor Facebook. This means of communicating is fine for me. We may have two different objectives; mine being that I can hand on to my kids a more definitive family history than I inherited, whereas it seems you want to connect with living relatives, which again, no offense intended, I'm not particularly interested in."
