I stumbled on an old photo of my great-grandparents Michael John Walsh Jr. and Mary McGinty taken in Murdock in 1924 or 1925.

The photo above, my great-grandparents Mary (McGinty) Walsh and Michael John Walsh Jr. in Murdock in 1924 or 1925. Above: The location on Main in Murdock, Minnesota, at least 86 years after the photo of my great-grandparents was made by Mrs. J. D. Walsh.

Michael John Walsh Jr. was born Oct. 15, 1858, in Canada, and died March 11, 1929 in Swift Co., Minn. Mary McGinty is the daughter of Patrick and Mary (Moran) McGinty. They were married Nov. 22, 1881, at St. Bridget’s Catholic Church, De Graff, Minnesota.

The old photo was taken in 1924 or 1925 in Murdock, most likely in front of their home on Main Avenue in Murdock, then the home of their son Henry Walsh, my great uncle. (If you are reading this and have more details, please let me know at jwalsh@wctrib.com.)

I am still in the process of I preparing a video on my Great-Great-Grandparents Patrick “Paddy” McGinty and Mary (Moran) McGinty.

Patrick McGinty and Mary (Moran) McGinty had daughter named Mary McGinty, born June 23, 1859 in Scotland, and died Oct.1, 1952, Swift County, Minnesota. Patrick or Paddy was born Jan. 1, 1829, in Mayo, Ireland and died Dec. 26, 1915, Swift County.

I don’t have a photograph of Patrick and Mary (Moran) McGinty, but I will show you in an upcoming blog post about the treasure they left behind!
