Directions to Walter Watson Murray's burial site:
From Scottsville Museum, travel East on SR6 and turn right on SR 645 (Beales Lane), and then left on Dobby Creek Rd.
Go about a mile and just after a sharp curve up on top of a knoll, the grave is on the left just before a white picket fence,
which is around a house.
