I do not know anything about records for Lake Murray but since the
Army Corps. of Engineers has played a major role in all of the lake
development on the Savannah River, it appears very likely that a
complete record will be found in a library bordering the Lake Murray

Lake Hartwell covers a vast area where my ancestors and my wife's
ancestors lived and died.  We found a set of records (2 bound books of
11 x 14 sheets; Hartwell Library) for all cemeteries impacted by
development of Lake Hartwell and the Hartwell dam.  As might be
expected, several complete (church) cemeteries were moved.  Also
included were records of the (living) ancestors contacted to make
arrangements for the removal of the grave to another area.

I know information about Lake Hartwell will not help your friend, but
it should give her encouragement that there is most probably a set of
records available that could possibly help her with respect to
if her ancestors were moved or not.
