Ollie (Adaway) Murphy

This was my Daddy's little brother. I don't know anything about him at all. I didn't even know he existed until I began my genealogy research. I don't remember Daddy ever mentioning him. Maybe the memories were too painful, or since he was only 6, maybe he didn't remember him that well. I wish I knew.

The following info was given to me by my Uncle Dan and Aunt Faye Adaway. I thank them very much.

The cause of death was : There was no attending doctor..probable cause of death was influx action asthma ..
Contributory duration ...10 months
Place of burial or removal..Johnson Bayou, La
Date of burial ..march 19 1920
Undertaker:theres a name but cant read it

Place of death ..Cameron,

Dan had Asthma real bad when he was a young boy,sometimes turning blue,when he was about 5. His grandmother Fidelia told him to back up to the door post and mark his height with a mark and when he out grew the mark he would be healed. Well his grandmother would never lie to him ..he believed what she said ..and sure enough he never had asthma again...I guess you call that faith..
