Murrow family's Harford history

While this story [about Bill Murrow, Nov 16] was wonderful, I'm afraid some of the reported facts are incorrect. I am Bill Murrow's sister, and would like to correct the author who stated that our mother's family was Quaker and moved from Philadelphia to Troyer Road in the Black Horse area of White Hall.

Actually, it was our grandfather Murrow who was Quaker, but our Quaker relatives are buried in North Carolina, not in the Quaker cemetery in Fallston. Our mother's family did move to Harford County (Fallston) from the Philadelphia area in the late 1700s as I recall. ...

Again, I very much enjoyed this article but wanted to correct the facts of our family history as I am tremendously proud of our heritage.
