Murray Burial Site

Lot 11w Con. 2, Lanark Township.

Burial dates unknown.

The Murray Burial Site, is located on the farm owned by Willard Dobbie, on lot 11 west, concession 2 of Lanark Township.  Mr. Dobbie states that as far as he knows there are two burials there.  There are no markers nor is the area fenced.  The only thing present is a big old cedar tree, apparently planted at the time of the deaths.

Apparently Mitchell Murray and a Mr. Murphy are buried here.  Mr. Murphy was supposed to have been kicked by a horse in the stomach and died instantly.  Also to make matters worse, his barn was burnt the same day.

I will return again and take a picture of this site.
