Cpt. John Murray Gravestone Restoration Project

On June 14, 2008, along with descendants of Captain Murray, Steve Wood as President Abraham Lincoln; and numerous residents of the town of New Castle, we proudly marched through the historic streets of New Castle, NH to Riverside Cemetery. At the cemetery there was a dedication and wreath laying ceremony. Prior to the dedication Captain Murray and his family’s headstones were cleaned and sealed by the cemetery trustees and Roger Syphers of the Syphers Momument Company.
