Biography

Orige was born in 1869. Orige Murray ... He passed away in 1955. [1]

Ora was born April 10, 1869 in Van Buren Twp., Van Buren County, Ohio. He was the son of James Murray and Harriet "Susan" Spencer. His mother died after giving birth to her son Charles P Murray. This is why James Murray left Iowa to return to Ohio but this time Vinton County. In Vinton County his brother Lewis and himself met two sister Lettie and Dora Riffle. Ora married Lettie. They had 8 children two died at Infancy and one died at 17 years of age of tuberculosis.

In the 1920's Lettie became very ill with cancer. He put his wife on a train to Columbus, Ohio to the White Cross Hospital (Currently Riverside Hospital). She soon died on January 9, 1924.

Ora stuggled but raised his children in Vinton County and decided to marriage again. His second wife was Nellie Ponn. Family stories are this was not a good marriage. She left him prior to her death in 1939.

Ora lived marriage one finally time to Lura Jenkins and the lived in Zaleski, Vinton, Ohio for the rest of their life together. The old house which I have never found was a cave in the back. There was another small house on the property where a older women lived. Not sure who that women was.

Ora died in the Hospital in Logan, Hocking, Ohio on July 24, 1955.

Some of the information I have on Ora was given to me by his daughter Avonelle and Grandchildren Koni Wahl and James E Murray Jr. my grandfather. I have a large full tree of Ora's Sibling and Grandparents. I have his fathers pension record from the Civil War and Grandfather pension record from the War of 1812.
