The Martintown Mill and myself and my wife would like offer our condolences to the family at the passing of Doug Murray. Doug and his late wife Mary were long-time supporters of the Martintown Mill and were instrumental in the saving of the Martintown Mill and local history and culture. You should be very proud of the legacy they of left for future generations of Martintown and the community. On a personal note my wife and I moved to Martintown in 2012 and Doug immediately became a close friend to us and was one of my mentors in discovering the rich history of Glengarry and Martintown. He will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
