Francis Simon Murphy
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 9, 1891
Newton
Middlesex County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Feb. 7, 1937
Newton
Middlesex County
Massachusetts, USA

Beloved husband of Marie Helena (Allie), they married 19 September, 1912 in Newton, MA.

Father to John Paul, Francis, Thomas J Murphy, Lorraine, Edward, Patricia, Frances Eleanor, Barbara and Florence.

Francis worked for Gibbs Express Company in Waltham, MA for many years, his son John began working with him at the age of 16 and eventually purchased the business and owned it for more than 55 years.

(Note: The grave stone appears to have once been cemented to the stone ledge surrounding the grave site, but at some point fell off or was removed, and is now partially buried in the ground making some names unreadable. Francis' name does not appear on the grave marker - nor do the names of several other family members buried here including his wife Marie Helena and his daughter Patricia).
