      New York Irish World, 1 Feb 1902, Issue 1640, Mortuary Notices, p. 7, Obituary for Mrs. Mary Murphy
      --------------------------
      MURPHY - Mrs. Mary Murphy, the oldest woman in Reading, Pa., died Jan. 21 of general debility at her home, 845 Nicholis street, aged 100 years 9 months and 21 days. Mrs. Murphy was possessed of the most astonishing vitality and worked in her own household until within a few weeks ago. She was born in Ireland in 1801. Her maiden name was Culbert, and her husband, James Murphy, whom she married before coming here, did[sic] some years ago. She knew little illness and her powers of endurance occasioned comment even when young. Her death was not due to any organic disease. Her memory went back readily through almost the whole century of her existence. She was the last of a very prolific family of Culberts, all of whom she survived many years. She was a parishioner of St. Joseph's Catholic Church and attended the services there until positively unable, owing to her weakening limbs. One daughter, Mrs. Mary O'Neill, with whom she lived; six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren are her only survivors.
