Doheny, Edward L., Jr., also known as Ned (1893-1929), was born in Los Angeles and raised by his stepmother, Carrie Estelle Doheny, after his mother committed suicide in 1901. In 1913 Ned married Lucy Smith, with whom he had five children. On the night of February 16, 1929, Ned and his close friend and personal secretary, T. Hugh Plunkett, were found shot to death in one of the guest bedrooms of Greystone, Ned's Beverly Hills mansion. Unlike the rest of his family members who were buried in Catholic cemeteries, Ned was interred at Forest Lawn in Glendale.
