Mrs. Murray was Amelia Ryder, daughter of the late Henry Ryder, of the third line. She was 73 years of age. Fifty-three years ago last May she was married to her sorrowing husband. Three years ago they celebrated their golden wedding with their children and grandchildren all participating. Mr. and Mrs. Murray spent all their married life in this vicinity. Five sons and three daughters blessed the home, all of whom survive and reside on farms in this section with the exception of Edward, who is a millwright in Kitchener. They are Peter, Thomas Hilliard, Wesley, Edward, Andrew, Jennie, Mrs. Edward J. Kingsbury and Mrs. Fred Denny. Mrs. Murray was a member of Siloam Methodist Church.
