Friday's Photo: Cemetery Photos - Ellen Agnes Murray

Mount Calvary Cemetery, Columbus, Franklin County,Ohio, USA - Plot: HC-D-141-1


I like cemeteries and Find A is the best. I can virtually visit many cemeteries while still in my pajamas (and I don't have to worry about snakes). At Find A, cemetery lovers visit cemeteries, take photos, record information, and post their finds at Find A I really appreciate contributors such as Nancy Ann Mull Buchanan who posted these photos and allows me and other viewers to share the photos. 

Ellen Agnes Murray was born on January 09, 1888  in the villiage of Burren, in the old Parish of Abby, now New-Quay, County Clare, Ireland.  She was the daughter of James Murray and Cecilia Linane.  Her name is listed as Helena on the Register of Baptismal, her Record of Apostolic Services gives her name as Ellen Murray and her obituary gives her name as Ellen Agnes Murray.  As a nun, she took the name Sister Mary Columbkill.

Sister Columbkill was visiting her sister, Julia Murray Moylan, in Ireland when she fell ill and returned to the United States by plane.  She died several weeks later on June 18, 1955 at Mount Carmel Hospital.  Her funeral was attended by many.  Honorary pallbearers included the Governor of Ohio and the Mayor of Columbus.  Burial was in Mount Calvary Cemetery. For more about Ellen Agnes Murray click here
