CEMETERY INSCRIPTIONS OF DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC
Compiled by Lillian H. Harley, Pattie W. Heaton, Lillian D. Kizer
Location: Approximately 2 miles East of Grover on Old Wire Road, S-18-19, is the beautiful chain-link fenced Murray Cemetery.

History: We find the oldest remaining monument in Murray Cemetery is that of Elizabeth Murray, the wife of A. T. D. Murray, who was born Dec. 8, 1812 and died Feb. 16, 1864. From this burial we believe that A. T. D. Murray founded this cemetery when his wife died. A. T. D. Murray was born March 20, 1806 and died April 26, 1874, ten years after his wife, and was also buried here. In 1972 Laura Mae Byrd, Laverne Reeves, Bernice H. Reeves, Albert Harbeson and Furman Harbeson conveyed to the Trustees of Murray Cemetery (not named) two parcels of land comprising of 0.50 acre which adjoined the old part of the cemetery. (Deed recorded in Dorchester County records in Deed Book 209, at page 51) On Nov. 20, 1972 a plat was made by Earle A. Thompson, Reg. Engr. & L. S. which is also recorded in Clerk of Court's records of Dorchester County in Plat Book 20, page 125.
