Joseph Murray

Joseph Murray, 70 years of age, died this morning at his home on Parker's hill, above Ballou street, after a long illness from dropsy.

Mr. Murray was born in Brandon, Vt., and had been a resident of this city for a good many years. He was one of the best known stone masons in the city, having followed that trade for many years. He fought in the Civil war, taking part in many notable engagements and received an honorable discharge at the end of his period of enlistment. He leaves a large family of sons and daughters.

The funeral arrangements have not been completed, but it will probably be held Saturday morning from Notre Dame church.
