Thanks for posting the pictures of the O’Reilly genealogy pages from “Spanish Knights of Irish Origin” by Micheline Walsh. I see you have access to Volume 4. I believe the genealogy of John Murphy – Juan Murphy my 10th GGF is on pages 30-32. Would you be able to post it or send it to me via my email?
