Cemetery Association of Murphy Awarded Grant for Tombstone Repair
The Cemetery Association of Murphy was awarded a $3,000 grant from the Collin County Historical Commission to repair and clean six markers in the Decatur/Maxwell/Murphy Cemetery. Several of the stones were loose from their bases, leaning due to ground settlement, broken off completely, and/or stained with fungus. The stones dated back to 1853. Texas Cemetery Restoration LLC did the repairs.
A special thank you goes out to the Historical Commission for their continued efforts in helping fund the preservation of this true Murphy asset.
