|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Murphy Fork Cemetery is located on Murphy Fork Road, Morgan County, Kentucky across from the oldest house in Morgan County. The cemetery is located on the west side of the road near the south end of the farm, and sits on the top of hill. Mr. Jess Lawson the current owner of the farm where the Ben Murphy Cemetery is located informed us that this cemetery has a easement for public access.
As stated above, across the road from the old log house at the Northwest corner of the barn is where my ancestors John Murphy and Nancy Ransom are buried. The old barn has been replaced by another several years back. We can only hope that John and Nancy's bodies were not disturbed if the information handed down is accurate. We were told that the old log house was the home of my ancestor William Murphy, John's son.
Listed as Cemetery #66 in the Morgan County Cemetery Index, Volume 2.
