Parents Maureen & Hugh Murphy, farmed pyrethrum in North Kinangop near the Aberdare mountains.
Nakuru Girls High School before leaving for South Africa in 1962.

would love to hear from old friends from Kenya and South Africa who knew her. 
Lived in North Kinangop, and was one of a bunch of eight brats who were mad enough to stay there from 47, through the Mau Mau rough times and finally threw in the towel in 1962.
Left their farm workers in tears as they said goodbye to leave for their new life in South Africa. As kids they lived a pretty wild life up near the aberdare mountains. Their horses were used to them riding bareback, shoeless (them and horses) shorts in the bitter frost up into the mountains where elephant and buffalo abound(ed). 
Oh and the stories Ursula can tell!
