      In 1893 Theresa is listed on a ship travelling to the US - arriving Apr 10, 1893 - ship was the Germanic and it left from Queenstown. She was 20 years old. This would have been only 6-8 months after her wedding. On her application for citizenship in 1940, Theresa wrote that she arrived in 1893 on the Lucania but there is no one on board that ship with the name of Theresa Murphy or Theresa Lowery.

      In 1940 US Federal census Theresa is living at 601, West 169 Street, Manhatton, New York City and she is renting. She is aged 67. Living with her are two lodgers, Finton Lawler aged 37 and single and Dan Giblin aged 40 also single. Finton is the proprietor of a bar and grill and Dan is a clerk in the Post Office. On the form Theresa is listed as an alien while Dan and Finton are both naturalised.
