Before they made Lake Murray, the South Carolina Electric and Gas
Company had to contact members of the family whose graves would be
involved with the making of the lake.  A lot of families, some of mine
included, did not want the graves disturbed so they opted to have a
memorial placed in a Church Cemetery identifying the names of the
deceased buried under the waters of Lake Murray.  The Columbia Chapter
of the S. C. Genealogical Society has made available  a book of all
those names listed. In the book, it is noted the letters received from
the family members what their desires were regarding their families.
