Agnes Isabel Rock was born in Shropshire, England. She was the daughter of William Thomas Rock and Ellen Harris Rock. She and her mother came to the US on the steamship Majestic in 1895 to join her father. The family settled in New York City and later Ft Lee, NY where Agnes and her sister Hilda grew up.

One of her father's relatives owned a film studio in Ft Lee, New Jersey and it was while working there that she met her future husband, James Joseph Murray. They married Oct 12, 1916 at St.Patrick's Cathedral in New York City, and started their marriage in NYC, before moving to Ft. Lee, New Jersey. He worked in the fledgling film industry and about 1921 they moved to California because of the warmer climate. She lived in Hollywood, California until her death of a heart attack in 1971.
