    Frances L. Murphy II, 85, publisher emeritus of the longest-running African American family-owned newspaper in the United States, died yesterday of cancer-related illnesses at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore.

    Murphy, known as Frankie Lou, followed in the footsteps of her grandfather, John H. Murphy Sr., a former slave and Civil War veteran who founded the Afro-American in Baltimore in 1892. The Washington edition is its sister paper.
