May 24, 2014 @ 2:00 pm Fairmount Cemetery
A Memorial Ceremony and placement of a military marker on the grave of
George Murphy, a Civil War Marine, by the Marine Corps League will take place.
BACKGROUND: When John Witte wrote his book in the 1990's listing graves of Civil
War veterans in Spokane County he only found one Marine, John Foran. The
Marine Corps League at that time had a ceremony and placed a military
marker on his grave.
When working on the Civil War database we have on our website, I came
across another Marine veteran and contacted the Marine Corps League to see
if they would help get one of the free government military headstones. Mr.
Morgan of that organization has gone way beyond what I asked and has
obtained an impressive headstone and planned this whole ceremony.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED SUNDAY, MARCH 16 from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m.
