Mary (Granny Kate) was the daughter of Zillah Owenby and Squire Tom Ledbetter. Zillah became pregnant with Squire Tom Ledbetter, but Tom did not want to marry Zillah. He paid William Albertus Murphy $10.00's to marry Zillah, but they didn't live together as husband and wife. William took a job driving a state coach from Asheville, NC to Charlotte, NC for four years. Then he came back and and built him a store. At this time Zillah and her little daughter went to his store to buy some goods. Her little daughter Mary Catherine said she noticed that her mother and Murphy were getting very friendly. It wasn't long after this until they moved in with Murphy. You see she was still married to Murphy. Story handed down from Mary Catherine "Kate"
She was raised by Zillah Owenby & William Albertus Murphy
