James Murray was the
only child of Andrew Murray and Molly McAdam. He was born in Northern
Ireland. When James was 10 years old it was his mother's practice to
drop him off at school on her was to work.
One day she dropped
him off and for whatever reason he decided not to go to school that day
and instead went back to the family home. When his mother arrived home
from work later that day she found young James dead. He must have been
playing with the stove and left the gas on and the fumes killed him.
