Miss Ellen Murphy, 68 years old, formerly of this county, died at her home in Louisville last Friday of a complication of troubles. She had been in failing health for some time and death did not come unexpectedly. The body was brought her and after funeral services at St. Augustine church Monday morning conducted by the Rev. Father Fisher, was buried in St. Augustine cemetery.

Miss Murphy was a daughter of Kelly (Kenellum) Murphy (and Arena "Rena" Bowles) and was born and reared in this county. She was a consistent member of the Catholic church and a good Christianwoman. She was the third member of her family to die within the last twelve months, her brothers George and Ben Murphy having died within the past year. She is survived by one sister.

(From 1920 newspaper clipping)

Per 1880 Marion Co Ky census, she worked as a school teacher and lived with brother Benedick Murphy.
