Tombstone Tuesday ~ Mary Ann Murphy Conlin & daughter Lizzie
Mary Ann Murphy was born 28 December 1843 in Airdrie, Lanarkshire, Scotland to John & Marion Young Murphy. Mary Ann married Bernard Conlin 16 July 1869 in Auchinleck, Ayrshire, Scotland. Mary & Bernard had their first two children, Patrick & Marion in Scotland. They had Catherine in Wadsworth, Medina County, Ohio and then went back to Scotland for a few years where they had three more children, Margaret, Mary & John. When they came back to Medina County, Ohio, they had one last child, Lizzie. Shortly thereafter, it seems that Mary and Bernard separated, but never divorced. Mary died 17 March 1908 in Akron, Summit County, Ohio. Mary is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Wadsworth with her daughter Lizzie who died of small pox in 1893.
Bernard died a few years before Mary and is buried near his brother, Peter Conlin, in a now unmarked grave in Doylestown, Wayne County, Ohio.
