Midwife Sophia Ellen Murphy and family, ca 1939 or 1940

2014-07-13 - Fairplay, KY - Photo from collection of Donita Loy Hortillosa. Sophia Ellen Murphy. In the photo with her is husband Andrew, standing in front of her is her grandson Stanley Murphy and next to him is her great-grandson Charles Cooper. She also delivered both these children. I am unsure of the date, but my best guesstimate is around 1939 or 1940, which places her somewhere around 77 or 78 years old. There is also a large wedding picture of this couple which hangs in Magnolia House Bed and Breakfast, which is owned by my cousin, Linda Lewis. - Donita Loy Hortillosa
