POLK COUNTY WISCONSIN IN WORLD WAR 1

This website in dedicated to my grandfather Sergeant Leonard Patrick Murphy who was in the Veterinary Corp in WW 1. Leonard was with the Veterinary Hospital No. 18 assigned to Sougy France south of Paris. Leonard crossed the Atlantic Ocean bringing horses and supplies to the War effort in Europe in 1918. Leonard was borne to Patrick and Margaret Rogers Murphy who farmed in Polk County Wisconsin in the area of Milltown and grew up on the farm.

Important Notice to future Murphy family researchers: Byron and his wife Mary Doyle published a very limit amount of copies of books on the Murphy family history and also the ROGER Family. It is a very complete book of our Murphy and Roger's line from Ireland to America. The book was published in 1981 and Byron donated a copy to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and this book is at their library in Salt Lake City. You can also go to their website

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Website

To confirm that they do have the book: Go to the FAMILY HISTORY LIBRARY SYSTEM and click on SEARCH THE FAMILY HISTORY LIBRARY CATALOG FOR RECORD AND RESOURCES. Now click on AUTHOR SEARCH put in DOYLE in the surname box and BYRON in the first name box. Click on search and click on DOYLE, BYRON, DANIEL, 1917 and you will find the listing for the Murphy Book and the Rogers book. Byron's mother Rose was Leonard's sister. Byron and his wife Mary worked very hard and did a wonderful job on tracing our Murphy family history in this book. Many of the families did buy this book at the time of publishing in 1981 but now copies are very rare. It is good to know that if the family did want to research this book it is available at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City

Microfilm copies of the MURPHY AND ROGERS BOOK are available by contacting the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints(LDS)at their research centers in your area or at their library in Salt Lake City

I would be happy to do look-ups from the MURPHY BOOK if you can send me a list of 2 or 3 generations starting no later than 1981 of your family tree or you can for sure trace your family to the Polk County Wisconsin Murphys.


NOTE: MAY 2010 COPIES OF THE MURPHY BOOK ARE NOW AVAILABLE. PLEASE MAIL ME FOR MORE INFORMATION.
