Murray Cemetery is a small cemetery, located on the Ohio River in northern Breckinridge County, Kentucky, in the town of Cloverport.  This town was first known as Joesville, after the founder, Joe Huston, in the 1790’s.  The town was the site of the ferry when, in 1816, Jacob Weatherholt piloted the family of Abraham Lincoln across the Ohio River to Spencer County, Indiana.  Joesville was renamed Cloverport in 1828.

These photos were taken at the end of the day – not great light.
