wife of Mr. Thomas Murphey, aged 85 years, leaving seven children, residents of the County, to bewail her 
loss.  Mrs. Murphey was a native of Argyleshire, Scotland, but for more than 55 years a resident of this 
country.  She was a pious member of the Presbyterian Church, - as she lived, so she died, a Christian, full 
with hope of a blessed immortality.".
