John Peyson Murray is mentioned in his father's obituary.
His occupation was Deputy United States Marshall for the Lincoln County
District of Georgia.
Article from The Washington Chronicle, April 17, 1893, Georgia, Lincoln
County.  Mr. Miller Lang Seriously Shot.
News has just come over the telephone from Lincolnton, that Mr. Miller
Lang has been shot by a negro named Wilson Davie, and is very seriously
Mr. Lang and Mr. John Murray had a warrant for the negro charging him
with disposing of mortgaged property, and were out looking for him.  They
met the negro on the road and arrested him.  But he was driving a hog
home and asked to be allowed to go on.  The request was granted and
Messrs. Lang and Murray went on with him.  When the negro arrived at his
house, he rushed in and got his pistol.  Mr. Lang followed him, when the
negro turned and shot him, the ball entering the upper part of the chest.
Lang fired at the negro, but it is not known whether he struck him or
not.  When Murray came in he found Lang lying on the floor and the negro
standing over him with a pistol in his hand.  The negro snapped his
pistol at Murray and ran off.  He escaped, but parties are out searching
for him.
After the death of her husband from liver disease in 1921, Mattie and her
three surviving children moved to Augusta to find work in the cotton
