Descendants of John Murry - May 22 2006
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Following is a listing of Murry descendants that I have on personal database.
For information of Liberty Chapel connected families.

Murry members moved from Union Parish area into Grant Parish area after 1880.
Those at Liberty Chapel are from William Jackson (died in Union Parish) and
Mellissa Sweeney who then married a Creed (this family group at L/C).
Jackson Lee Murry (b. 1876) was son of Solomon W and he married his first cousin,
M. Aldora Murry, daughter of WIlliam Washington Murry who was the brother of
Solomon W. Both were sons of William Jackson Murry. If it seems confusing --
it is. Following is what I have from records available. Imput from Murry
family members is requested.
