John Murray birthday!

Thanks to colleague Y.N.E. for reminding me that today is John Murray‘s birthday (b. 1741).

It is also my mother’s birthday, which is perhaps why I forget. Happy birthday, Mom! Happy birthday, John!

  1. I’ve sometimes wondered if some of these days should be treated like Saint Days in the Episcopal and Catholic churches. I have seen a few Universalist churches that do something special around Clara Barton’s birthday (often a recognition of nurses, and nursing as ministry).

  2. While we’re being geeky Universalist historians, I’m sure I read somewhere that John Murray was born in Alton. My question is, is this Alton in Staffordshire, near Stoke-on-Trent, now the home of Alton Towers theme park?
