(1772 - 1840)

Margarett Dugan Murray was the daughter of Col. Thomas and Mary Dugan of Newberry Co., S.C. and the wife of James Murray. Margarett and James were married April 12, 1772 and the parents of 11 children.

There is a lot of carving on this stone which is no longer legible.
The inscription on her tombstone read as follows... "In memory of Margaret Murray who was born the 19th of April, 1772/Departed this life June 9, 1840/She's gone; the gentle, good and kind/Beneath the lonely turf she lies/Faith, hope and charity will find their friend seraph in the skies/With Christian fortitude she met her fathers lightning rod/Her gentle spirit soars/Gone to dwell forever with her God."
