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. Photograph caption reads, "Photo-diagram below illustrates police officers' theory of the dual tragedy in which Theodore Plunkett killed his employer, Edward L. Doheny, Jr. and then committed suicide. According to the police theory, Plunkett held the gun at his waist and shot Doheny seated in a chair."
