James and Fannie are the parents of Ruth Gough Murphy. My Great Great Grandparents.
James E Gough was born July 27, 1859 died July 3, 1888. The death registry lists cause of death as consumption; which back then ment: A progressive wasting away of the body, especially that attended upon pulmonary consumption; hence pulmonary phthisis or tuberculosis.
Fannie was born about 1860, so far I have no other information on them.
