John James Brophy did have a brother who I suspect was shipped to Pictou with the other
passengers. His name was Martin and he married a Mary Walsh in February 1854 in Antigonish,
Nova Scotia. He had one child that I am aware of - John born in 1855. James Brophy as you say
was married to Eve McLean, daughter of John McLean and Margaret Turnbull. She is related to
my mother. John James Brophy was drowned August 4, 1867 a short distance from where I live
and is buried here in the Anglican cemetery even though he was a Catholic. His wife Eve died in
1876 at the age of 36 and is buried in the Catholic cemetery about 30 miles from where I live.
I knew some of the descendants of J> James Brophy.
