MURRAY CEMETERY
Submitted by Bettie Cummings Cook CG
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Copied by Bettie Anne Cook and Michael L. Cook of Evansville, IN on June 8, 1978. This cemetery is located in Cloverport, Breckinridge County, Kentucky and is the oldest one in Cloverport. Until recently it was inaccessible due to briars and underbrush. It was so overgrown that it was unknown even to many residents of the area. The Sacajawea Festival Board approved a project using CETA workers to clear the cemetery after Bettie Anne Cook consulted with Mrs. Margaret Smith, Cloverport historian.
