Bill and Dorothy Brophy at Mom's engagement

"O Brithe" or 'descendant of Broth'
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 Ancestry.com 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
