Caroline was born in Keokuk Co, IA. She was one of 11 children of George M. Holaday and Lydia Hollingsworth Holaday. Two of these 11 died quite young.

Caroline married (Senator) Benjamin Franklin Murray 8 Nov 1864 in Madison Co, IA.

She wrote a beautiful piece about Civil War times. Google "Life During War Caroline Murray."

After the death of her husband in 1890, she remained in Iowa and lived with her mother. Shortly after her mother's death in 1911, she moved to California to live with a divorced daughter, Maude. She had (at least) four children. Her son preceded her in death by approximately one year.
