Cemetery History

The name of the cemetery comes from a Professor James Murdoch who was a well-to-do actor who owned land in the vicinity. The crossroads to the north of the cemetery was the location of a store, the Bethel Presbyterian Church and the Murdoch Post Office.
 
The cemetery is sometimes referred to as the Murdoch Presbyterian Church Cemetery but as far as I know, there was no connection between the church and cemetery other than location. The church was originally known as the Bethel Presbyterian Church but is now known as the Bethel Murdoch Presbyterian Church in honor of the contributions that Professor Murdoch made to the church.

From Beers History of Warren County,
Page 614 says "The first interment at Bethel Graveyard was that of Annie Spence, in the year 1806."
Page 625 says that the church was formed on the 9th day of September, 1814 and for several years had no house of worship, but held their
meetings, in the winter season, in a log schoolhouse near the present Bethel Graveyard, and in the summer season in the groves.

Today, it seems that the name is spelled both "Murdoch" and "Murdock" although the church, the road sign and the 2002 Warren County Highway Map use the Murdoch spelling. I believe the cemetery is now operated by Hamilton Township and is still active.

War of 1812 veterans include: Samuel B. Walker & David C. Williamson.  Civil War veterans include:  John Atkinson, William Atkinson, Joseph B. Harrison, William Huffman, Salathiel Lee, William R. Merrill, Henry Roat, John Q. Spence Jr., and Thomas D. Walker.
