At the end of 1884, the tiny 25 year old servant of granite dealer, Robert McClenahan, walked out of his kitchen in Port Deposit, Maryland and started a new life as Mary Ellen Murray Murray, "that second Murray being her ticket to independence."
Born to Irish Catholic immigrants to America, Mary Ellen would instead be cooking for her husband, William Murray, the blacksmith at Shop #1 in the quarry. In 1897, their fourth son, Jerome was born. Since childhood when he fell through the outhouse into Rock Run, he was destined to be near water - and to tell stories.
Steps follows the path of four generations of the Murrays, who lived and worked in the "quaint" riverside town of Port Deposit. From starving and poorly literate, emerged families who found gainful employment in the quarries and first class schooling in the town. You will enjoy these true stories of the young men and women of the Murray family as they journey in and out of the town's homes and buildings during a historically unique period!
