There is a tree that has her birth as 7 May 1897 Avondale N S
Father George Evans Murray
Mother Jane Grant

You could check 1901 Census Pictou   Nova Scotia
Gabriel E Murray age 33 born England ..farmer
Janie Murray age 33 born N S
Olive R Murray age 3 born NS 7 May 1897
Other family members listed
1911 Census looks like the same family under the name of Evens same district

Might be worth checking out

A tree also has her married to James Lyttleton Wood  ???

Thanks Rosie.

So itís Olive Ruth Murray rather than Ruth Olive.

Yes with that family George could have been mistranscribed as Gabriel.

She married in 1916, so a birth in 1897 fits ok.

Does that tree have a marriage for Olive?

Thanks again.

Can anyone make out the cause of death and manner of injury please.  I can make out "struck by train" but struggling with the rest.

Thanks Rosie.  The more I look at it now it looks like fractured scull.

Thereís quite a few searchable old newspapers from Nova Scotia but Iím yet to find one that mentions the accident.

Iíll keep looking as it would be interesting to find.
