Descendants of John Murphy Generation No. 1 1. JOHN3 MURPHY (THOMAS2, KANLUM1) was born October 20, 1846 in IN, and died May 19, 1904 in Owen county IN. He married KATHERINE SALLIE STONE June 21, 1863 in Morgan county IN, daughter of JOHN STONE and CATHERINE ??. She was born June 01, 1843 in near Alaska, Morgan county IN, and died January 06, 1935 in Owen county IN. More About JOHN MURPHY: Occupation: farmer Notes for KATHERINE SALLIE STONE: Katherine's home place prior to her marriage was near the little village of Alaska that straddled the Morgan- Owen county line. OBITUARY: Catherine Stone Murphy Obituary Catherine Stone Murphy, daughter of John and Catherine Stone, was born in Morgan county, Indiana, near what is now known as Alaska on June 1, 1843, and on January 6, 1935, about noon, while the clouds were broken and the sun was peeping through and the day developing into a beautiful evening and the earth illuminated and lighter with its radiant rays of light, death stole in and claimed for its victim our beloved mother, she beng 91 years, 7 months and 5 days of age. Jesus said: "Watch, for ye know not the hour when the Lord cometh". Her life seems to us a short journey, and when human hands had ministered all in their power, the inevitable came, as it must come to all of us, and Aunt Kate, as she was called, answered the call. When quite young she gave her heart to God and united with the Church of Christ at the old log church situated one-half mile north of Alaska, Indiana, having the emblem of baptism administered by emersion, after transferring her membership to the Higgins Creek church, and remaining a faithful member until her death. In the year 1860, at the age of 17 years, her marriage to John Murphy was solemnized by Squire Thomas Potorff, and to this union was born seven children, three of whom have preceded her in death, namely: Alexander, commonly known as "Doc", Samuel and Delia. Lafayette Murphy of Coldwater, Mich., John Murphy of Gosport, Mrs. John Allee of Quincy, Mrs. Annie Freeman are among those surviving. The father of this union died in the year 1904, after which Mrs. Murphy earned her own living until overtaken with loss of eyesight, when she was compelled to give up and make her home with her children. Aunt Kate, as she was better known, was a well respected citizen in all communities in which she lived. She was a kind, true, loving, devoted wife and mother, always trying to make those with whom she came in contact happy. To know her was to love her. A few hours before the Great Reaper thrust his sickle into the sheaf for the great storehouse, she was heard to say in the presence of a granchild: " I see your face." Her voice is stilled, a vacant place appears and she leaves four children, three grandchildren, twenty seven great-grandchildren, one nephew and a host of other relatives and friends. Let us console ourselves that our loss is her eternal gain. Mother dear has left us, her face we'll see no more. We know that she is no wresting on that great eternal shore. We always loved and trusted her, her guidance always right. We're striving now to meet her in that land so fair and bright. Farewell, farewell, dear Mother, we miss you oh so much. Those loving words, that tender smile and the hands we loved to touch. But now you've gone to Heaven, with God and the Angels fair. And we know if we but trust Him some day we'll meet you there. --Mr. & Mrs. John Murphy More About KATHERINE SALLIE STONE: Cause of Death: Myocarditis Church Affiliation: Alaska Christian Church Church Affiliation2: Higgins Creek Church Children of JOHN MURPHY and KATHERINE STONE are: i.
