Mary Amelia Louisa Badger Murrow
Birth: Sep. 29, 1793
Charleston County
South Carolina, USA
Death: 1867
Effingham County
Georgia, USA

Mary Amelia Louisa Badger Murrow was born September 29, 1793 in Charleston, Charleston County, South Carolina. She married Rev. John Murrow, a Baptist minister, and they had six children: Mary Amelia Murrow Pate Downs, William J. Murrow, Oliver H. Murrow, Dr. John A. Murrow, Sr., Joseph Samuel Murrow, and J. B. Murrow. She died at age 74 in 1867 in Effingham County, Georgia and is buried at Old Hopeful Cemetery (also known as Hopeful Cemetery or Stevens Grove Cemetery) near Pembroke, Bryan County, Georgia. Family tradition says her grandfather was given Sullivan Island, near Charleston, South Carolina by King George III. (Sullivan Island, South Carolina, at the entrance to Charleston Harbor, was the largest slave port in North America. It is estimated that nearly half of all African Americans had ancestors that passed through Sullivan Island.) Mary's heritage was Irish. I hope one of her descendents will add her photo to this site.

Thanks so much to descendent Sherry Deal Jones for much of this information. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions. Can anyone read the inscription at the bottom of the tombstone?
