Edward Parks McMurray was born in Hardin County, Illinois. He devoted his life to music education in Pontiac, Illinois, also making a living as a music dealer in that town. He once recollected a visit he made to Abraham Lincoln’s law office in Springfield with his grandfather, Beaumont Parks, who taught school in a log house north of the city. Beaumont Parks tutored Abraham Lincoln privately in English and it was from him, it is said, that Lincoln derived much of his ability as a speaker.
