     Family sources say Willina Murray was born on 19 January 1903 at Belfast, Northern Ireland, daughter of John Murray and Mary Lesley Crawford. "They were in Belfast when she was born. I am certain of that because she told me many times that her mom had guilt over the Irish birth and made a point of the fact they were Scottish. They tried to go to Scotland to have her but she came too fast." -- Bill Hoefling, 12 Mar 2004.1,2,3,4,5

Willina Murray married Lyle Don Kyes circa 1931 at Saginaw, Saginaw, Michigan.6

Willina Murray died on 21 July 1990 at West Branch, Ogemaw, Michigan, at age 87.7,5
