    John Murphy (d 1874), brother of William (Henry). No headstone; the base for a surname plate is visible but the plate has gone. Also buried here are John Murphy (d 1892) and William Murphy (d 1901), sons of William (Henry) Murphy and Elizabeth nee Seed. Their names are included on the obelisk on the Murphy family grave.

    Murphy, James
    Unmarked grave of James Murphy, (the right-hand half of this grave). Why James was buried in half of a grave that seems to belong to some other family, in what seems to be the RC section of the cemetery is a mystery. He died in 1918, in the influenza epidemic. His name is included on the obelisk that stands on the Murphy family grave.
