In Reply to: Smith Mine, Carbon Co., Victims 1943 by Lynn Wozencraft of 111

Thank you for posting this info. I have Murray's from Carbon County, MO and had to check out David and Davie Murray that were mentioned. They were of Scottish heritage and my Murray's were of Irish heritage so they are not a match at this time. Never-the-less I did look them up and am sharing the information that it may help someone else:

Davd Murray, Sr., 56, Bearcreek

His age was 56 at the time of the 1943 Smith Mine Accident giving him a birthdate of about 1887.

1920 Carbon County, MO Census
Bearcreek Township
ED #23

142-157

MURRAY, David 33 M W Head Marr M/CM SCO SCO SCO 1887
MURRAY, Martha 37 F W Wife Marr SCO SCO SCO 1883
MURRAY, David W 11 M W Son Single WY SCO SCO 1909
MURRAY, Jeanette 09 M W Son Single WY SCO SCO 1911
MURRAY, James R 07 M W Son Single WY SCO SCO 1913
MURRAY, Robert B 03 11/12 M W Son Single MT SCO SCO 1916

NOTES:
M/CM is Miner/Coal Mine.
David immigrated in 1906 and was naturalized in 1913.
Martha immigrated in 1907 and was naturalized in 1913.

1930 Carbon County, MO Census

MURRAY, David 43 M W Head Marr at 21 F/CM SCO SCO SCO 1887
MURRAY, Martha 47 F W Wife Marr at 20 SCO SCO SCO 1883
MURRAY, David W Jr 21 M W Son Single T/PS WY SCO SCO 1909
MURRAY, James R 17 M W Son Single MT SCO SCO 1913
MURRAY, Robert B 14 M W Son Single MT SCO SCO 1916

NOTES:
SCO is Scotland.
F/CM is Foreman/Coal Mine.
T/PS is Teacher/Public School.
Martha married in 1903 and David in 1908. Due to this 5 year gap it appears Martha was married prior to marrying
David in 1908. Due to when Martha immigrated to the US her first marriage was most likely in Scotland. Her 2nd marriage to David may have been in WY.
