This cemetery was given to me in the following email:

"I am a great grandchild of Willian Newt Murray. His youngest child, Doris Theo Murray Ezzell was my grandmother.
I wanted to clarify for you that although the obituary reads that he was buried at Bethel, his actual grave is located in the Murray family cemetery. I am not from the area so I could not even begin to give you an accurate location. I do know that it is now on private property out in the woods near the location of the original home of the family, "little house in the woods" as it is referred.

There are only a few markers left as I assume the rest were wooden markers. It is also my understanding that the cemetery fell victim to vandals in the late 70's rumored to be "devil worshippers". His stone stands next to the markers of two of his 16 children. (13 made it to adulthood, one was stillborn, one died of pneumonia and one drowned in a washtub) Also the marker of Julia Murray Wiggins is located there, whom I beleive to be his sister and an unknow "McLain".

My grandmother was 18 months old at the time of his death. Somewhere I have photos of the grave markers. She and I went for a visit together so she could show me where she grew up.
If I find them I will be happy to share them with the site.
Thank you, Leisa Peek Shea, Greenville, SC"
