  • Notes 
    • The Guthrie family was mentioned in the History of St. Mary's Parish, Wakeman, Ohio: "St. Mary's founding family names, including some few who came later than the mid-century decade, marrying into founding families were as follows: Barry, Brennan, Broder, Burke, Cashman, Conry, Collins, Craghan, Donahoe, Dunn, Duggan, Dunbar, Fahey, Ford, Grady, Grogan, GUTHRIE, Healy, Higgins, Hogan, Hynes, Keveny, Kelly, Linehan, Langhan, Loughan, MURRAY, Mockler, Moroney, Nestor, Nohilly, QUINN, Raftery, Rooney, Shaughnessy, Shiel. There were all from Connacht, mostly Galway County, except four from Munster: Barry and Cashman from Cork, Duggan from Tiperary, and Moroney from Limerick." [Connacht is one of the provinces of Ireland, which includes Counties Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Roscommon and Sligo. The province of Munster includes Counties Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford.]

      According to the 1900 census, she immigrated to America in 1850.

      She's found in the 1870 census in Wakeman, Huron County, OH: MURRAY, James (30); Catherine (28); John (7); Mary (6); Margaret (4); Ann (4); James (3); Thomas (3). James was a farmer. James and Catherine were born in Ireland; all the children were born in Ohio. [Editorial Note: According to this census, her year of birth would have been around 1842.]

      She's found in the 1880 census in Wakeman, Huron County, OH: MURRAY, James (age 38), occupation: farmer; Catharine (age 38), occupation: keeping house; children Mary (age 16); Maggie (age 14); Anna (age 14); James (age 13); Thomas (age 13) (James and Thomas' occupation was "at school"); Cassie (age 7); Nora (age 1). James and Catharine were born in Ireland, as were their parents. All the children were born in Ohio. [Editorial Note: Again, according to this census, her year of birth would have been around 1842.]

      She's found in the 1900 census in Wakeman, Huron County, OH: MURRAY, James (b. June 1845; age 56; married 37 years); wife Catherine (b. April 1846; age 53; married 37 years); daughter Mary FORD (b. April 1865; age 35; widowed; married 1 year); daughter Anna (b. July 1866; age 33; single); son James (b. June 1868; age 31; single); daughter Nora (b. March 1879; age 21; single); son Mattie (b. June 1882; age 17; single). James and Catherine were born in Ireland; all the children were born in Ohio. James immigrated in 1860; Catherine in 1850. James was a farmer; James, Jr. was a farmer; daughter Nora was a school teacher.

      James C. and Catherine (Guthrie) Murray are found in the 1910 census in Wakeman Township, Huron County, Ohio: MURRAY, James C. (age 68), wife Catherine (age 65), children Anna (40), Elnora (28) and Mathais (26). James and Catherine had been married 48 years. She was the mother of nine children; seven of whom were still living. They were both born in Ireland; all the children were born in Ohio. James immigrated in 1858; Catherine in 1857. James was a naturalized citizen. He was a farmer; son Mathias was a laborer on a farm. This census was taken April 23 and April 25, 1910 by Frank H. Snyder. [Editorial Note: According to this census, as well as the 1900 census, her year of birth was 1845.]

      Her son, James L. Murray, gave the information for her death certificate: Catherine G. Murray was born May 23, 1845 in Ireland. She was a home-maker. Her father was John Guthrie of Ireland; her mother's name was unknown. She died March 23, 1919 in Camden, Lorain County, Ohio, where she had lived 2 years. She died of Influenza. The disease was contracted in Wakeman, Ohio. Her former and usual residence was Wakeman, Ohio. She was buried in Wakeman, Ohio on March 26, 1919.

      She is buried next to a James Guthrie, who died May 6, 1881, aged 77 years.

      Her obituary was published in the The Chronicle-Telegram (Elyria, Ohio) on March 24, 1919:
      Mrs. James C. Murray, mother of Elnora Murray and Mrs. J. C. Campbell of this city, died last evening at the home of her daughter Mrs. T. P. Rooney, in Kipton.
