Her Obituary:
Mrs. C.P Murray, Daughter of Col John Magee
Died at her fathers residence Thursday morning last, age 27 years and 10 months. Funeral took place Sunday at 1pm, Dr. F. Dw. Ward officiating, assisted by Rev. T. Aitken of North Sparta and Rev D Foster of Buffalo. The vast assembly that gathered to pay their last respects to the departed spoke plainer than words the high esteem with which she was regarded. A beautiful floral tribute in the form of a pillow bearing the word "Rest" was sent from Union Springs by the ladies of the church of which her husband is pastor. A few weeks since feeling that her life was near its close, she desired to be brought to her childhood home, that her last days might be spent with kindred and friends. Many were the hopes and prayers for her recovery. But the ablest medical skill and tenderest nursing were alike unavailing. In the early bloom of womanhood she was stricken down. And husband, parents and friends mourn her early death. She leaves a little daughter, who is too young to realize her loss. She was borne to her last resting place by her 4 brothers who deeply feel the loss of their loved and loving sister. And yet they mourn not as those without a hope for she had chose the better part and they can but feel with Ella, all is well.
