William Logue McMurray
DOB: 8 April 1821 born Warren County, TN (not absolutely proven)
DOD: 15 Nov 1865 Henderson, Rusk Co., TX
Burial: Old Cemetery, Row 8; Henderson, TX
Profession: Post Master as well as farmer
W. L. married Elizabeth Brown, daughter of Taylor Brown, on
11 Dec 1848. Taylor Brown is buried in the Brown Family Cemetery in Henderson.
We visited there a few years ago, and could not find this grave, but have seen
pictures of it in the Rusk County History Book.
My husband, Thomas Clyde McMurray, is a great great
grandson. Sherrill McMurray of Henderson is also a descendant.
We wondered why there was no wife buried by W. L. After
years of researching, we found that widowed Elizabeth Brown McMurray married
Dr. W. H. Wilson in Henderson. They removed to Gainesville, Cooke County, TX
where they are buried.

Can you put names to any of these faces? We've found a classmate with a good memory. She
believes that this is the "H" Association, which was a group of people who lettered in athletics and cheerleading.
