Another Pioneer Passed Away
Michael Murray, an old and respected resident of this city, died at his home here on Christmas Day surrounded by his family. He was seventy-seven years old and had been in ill health for some time past, and his sudden death was therefore not entirely unexpected.
A strange coincidence in his death was the passing away of Mrs. Broderick of Sausalito at the same time. Both nearly half a century ago had been passengers on the same ship that brought them to this country.
The deceased was the pioneer livery stable keeper of this city, where he had resided for the past thirty-eight years. He was a man of great worth and high character. His going marks the passing of another old pioneer whose numbers are growing less.
Mr. Murray was a native of County Cork, Ireland. He leaves a widow, Mrs. Annie Murray, and several children, Dr. M. J. Murray, J. J. Murray, and Marie, Margaret T., Sister M. Aloysius, Katherine A., Elizabeth S., Timothy E. and Richard D. Murray.
