Murray B: Abt. 1780 in Orange Co., NC, D: Abt. 1850 in Guilford Co., NC Married Nancy Craven B: Abt. 1790 in Randolph Co., NC, D: Abt. 1870 Notes for Walter G. Murray Walter Murray lived very near Cross Roads Church on a 75 acre farm. He was a farmer and leather worker, working with "Tanner Eli" Murray until his death. Nancy was blind in her later years and the story is that while her sons were away during the Civil War she signed a paper said to be a release of Walter's debts but was actually a deed to her farm. (If he is right and her "Sons" were at war, that would mean that John Alvis was in Civil War also) The names of the two men are recorded in my personal family diary and will not be mentioned. In 1772, after the Death of Nancy Craven Murray, Nancy Murray - daughter of Andrew, sold to Eli (her brother?) the lands that formerly belonged to Walter G Murray for $100.00. The unmarried daughters, Martha, Anne and Elizabeth moved some 3 miles west into a log house near James (Jeems) and John Murray, across Quaker Creek. This house is occupied by Ona Jeffries who knew that 2 old maids had lived and died there. She relates that the old maids deeded the land to James (Jeems) who promised to see them decently buried. The land is now owned by Ola Murray Martin, a descendant of James (Jeems) Murray. By Edgar M. Murray Oct, 1978 | Cross Roads Presbyterian Church was the home church for most of the early Murray family. | 18

23: Historical Introduction by Edgar Murray This is an attempt to list the family tree of the Murray and related families, the Scots-Irish, who settled during the 1700's in Orange, now Alamance County near the present Cross Roads Church. The name Scots-Irish has a special meaning, In 1600 King James 1 of England, having conquered Ireland, set up the Ulster Plantations in Ireland. He offered 2000 acres to anyone who would get 20 families to go there and settle on each 2000-acre plot. He had hoped that it would attract the poor in English cities, but most of the people who went there were Scots. They considered themselves as still Scots, merely living in Ireland. They had very little to do with the Irish (Catholics) while retaining their own Presbyterian Churches. By early 1700 they more or less outnumbered the Irish: Quit Rents became to much to pay and laws were passed that excluded anyone from holding public office or serving in the military who was not a member of the Catholic Church. The Scots, meanwhile, had to pay tithes to the Catholic Church. It was too much: In late 1600 they started coming to America in large numbers. The greatest numbers came in 1721 and 1739, settling in Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland. By 1740 no more land was available in Pennsylvania, so the Scots headed for the "back country" where land was cheap or could be acquired by just settling on the land. There were few if any Indians left, they having moved west and north. (Con't next page) | 23

24: The first to arrive in North Carolina were those names are common in the area today - Murray -Tate - Anderson - White - Mebane, etc. The original settlers arrived in 1740-1755 and settled in-groups; near Crossroads and old Hawfields, along the Eno River and at Hillsboro. There were no roads - just Indian and traders trails - and everything had to be brought by horses or on horse drawn sleds. The trails were slowly enlarged and by 1765 there were a few wagons. Hillsboro became a town in1765 and by 1775 Orange County became the most popular county in North Carolina. Orange County was reduced in size several times. Alamance was cut off in 1848. The earliest towns were at Fayetteville, Henderson, Danville, and South Boston, Virginia. And to supply needs, villages with their stores, shops, etc sprang up where roads crossed or services were needed. There were 5 special events that had considerable impact on the people in this area. First was the Revolution that divided the people and setup a new nation. Then the war of 1812 with England. The great depression of 1837 when many settlers in Orange moved west. Shortly after this Cotton Mills began to appear along the streams in the area and the farmers started moving into the mill areas for steady pay and less gambling on how crops would turn out and sell. Finally the Civil War destroyed almost everything that had taken so long to build up. Whole families left the farms since the number of men killed during the war left almost no one to run the farms. This area had slaves, but they were limited in number, since there were very few really large plantations that could economically use them before 1865. | 24

25: My work started out to trace my own family which came from the Crossroads area. The more I learned in this effort the more it became apparent that all the information should be put into a form which could be preserved and as a help to others who might like to trace their families but did not have the time required to do so. From the original William Murray and James Murray, I have tried to bring their families (They were tied together by marriage in 1778) down to at least 1850-1900. At this point any mature person who knows who his grandparents were can add to the data I have assembled to complete his family tree, provided his family is listed here. Please feel free to use any part of this work as you wish. I ask that if you do use this to extend your family line down to the present please let me know and send me a copy of your work. Also, there are likely some errors -- I would like to know of this too. William came to the United States from the Ulster Plantations in Ireland. Exactly when is not known but is believed to have been in 1721. His family with other "Scotch-Irish" settled near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. His father is believed to have been William Murray, son of John Murray. Sketchy history says that William Murray with his wife and 5 children came to North Carolina in the 1740's. If this is true it is also likely that his sons' James and William L. were born in North Carolina. William Murray settled near the Cross Roads Church in Orange County (now Alamance County). In 1790 he owned 700 acres of land and had 1 slave. Note: Edgar Murray died March 26, 1991 | 25

35: Sometimes during 1868 or early 1869 Wiley and Eliza traveled from Alamance County in North Carolina to Haywood County in Tennessee. They had two small children, both just infants, with them. William was two years old and Henry was only 9 months. Sometimes that year after the June census or before Oct in 1871 they moved to Cedar Glade, Montgomery Co., Arkansas. Arthur and Richmond were born there in Oct of 1871, the only set of twins born to Wiley and Eliza. I found the description of Cedar Glade that is below in "The Goodspeed Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Western Arkansas." Published by Southern Publishing Company 1891. Chicago and Nashville. Comprising: A condensed history of the state, a number of biographies of distinguished citizens of the same, a brief descriptive history of each of the counties mentioned, and numerous biographical sketches of the citizens of the such counties and descriptions of villages. This states that "Cedar Glades has a population of 250, is twenty-two miles east of Mount Ida and twenty miles northwest of Hot Springs, and is surrounded by a good farming country. There is a good school-house here. Speer Brothers, A. J. Cotnam and William Ray represent the mercantile interest, and R. J. Housely is the mill man, and B. F. Carrollton the cabinet workman; Sharp & Boone, general black-smiths and wood workers." I wonder about the William Ray, because Wiley's Mother was a Ray and so far we have found nothing about her family. Sharp, Boone and Ray are good Alamance Co. names | 35
