1. Glasgow and William Vans Murray
The National Register Nomination Form casts doubt on the claim made in this marker:
“It has been said that Glasgow was the home of William Vans Murray, but from the land records and the circumstances of his life, it seems unlikely that this was so. When he returned from Europe, Murray may have lived with his first cousin, William Murray Robertson, thus causing the impression that Glasgow had been his property.” – National Register Nomination Form
