Mom told me that she never really knew who her grandfather was because her grandmother disowned Grandfather William Brophy because he married a divorcee (Grandmother Dorothy Brophy). It was so frustrating because I have been able to trace Desserts, Longs, Hunts, Daughtrys, but not much on the Brophys. One day mom and I were eating lunch and I looked at her and said "let's order your dad's birth certificate". It just came in and when mom opened it her hands started to shake, there it was "Patrick F. Brophy" age 32. So then I began the search through the census at and found Patrick F. Brophy and his family in 1900 and 1910 in Westchester County, Yonkers, NY. Here is a copy of Grandfather Brophy's birth certificate. I am going to try to track down Patrick F. Brophy's birth certificate (he was born in NY). Click here for WM Brophy Family Page
