TAAFFE FAMILY TREE (1786-2017)
 
 


On 2 February 1865, William Murtagh and Margaret Taaffe married in Kells, County Meath. Their relationship and subsequent children born from the marriage created a family connection between the Murtagh's and the Taaffe's that has lasted for nearly 150 years. William and Margaret Murtagh were my great grandparents and because of them, third and fourth cousins exist today in Ireland, United States and Australia.

I have been able to trace Murtagh ancestors back to 1824 in County Meath and Taaffe ancestors back to 1786 in County Meath.
