MURRAY PHOTOGRAPHS

This is the beginning of what we hope will become an extensive collection of photographs of life in Murray County, Georgia.

Over time, as acceptable photographs are collected, we hope to create sections dealing with each of the following:

Pictures of early Murray farm life. Horses, mules, oxen, and donkeys as farm work animals. The tools, implements, equipment and devices that were used. The various farm buildings that were common.

Pictures of unusual work/chores. Black-smithing, sorghum making, whiskey making, saw-milling, logging, mining, and so forth.

Pictures of older Murray buildings. Schools and churches that no longer exist. Unusual homes that are no more. Water-driven mills, grist mills, saw mills, water-driven factory equipment. Cotton gins.

The first photographs in this section of the museum are of MURRAY COUNTY PEOPLE. Initially we are featuring photographs ranging from the earliest citizens to those born before 1925. Whether they became rich or famous doesn't matter, so long as they at some point lived in Murray County.

Anyone who wants to submit photographs can send them by email (as jpeg images) to:
murraymuseum@aol.com. If you prefer to use regular postal service, send to: H. McDaniel, 213 82nd Avenue North, Myrtle Beach SC 29572. At least for now, we do not want any photographs of groups such as sports teams, school classes, family reunions, etc.
