MURRAY - The Calloway County Genealogical and Historical Society met June 11 at the Murray State University Arboretum. The members enjoyed a picnic lunch, followed by a presentation by Dr. Ernie Bailey, longtime resident of Murray and retired from MSU Pogue Library.

Bailey spoke about the Pullen family who donated their home and farm to Murray State upon the death of Mabel Pullen. This site has been preserved for the public and as a learning center for agricultural students at the university.

Bailey also talked briefly about obscure, old cemeteries within Calloway County, including one at the corner of Vine and South Ninth streets where some of his family is buried.

During the business segment of the meeting, an election of officers was held.
