KANTZ-MURRAY FAMILY, INDIANA

  of 138

Looking for any information about the Murray family connection to the Kantz family of the Elkhart-Bristol-Nappanee area. One of my ancestors, Grace (Kantz) Murray (1884-1962) was married to John Reed Murray (1885-1919). Both are located in Union Cemetery near Nappanee. Some information I have read indicates that John Murray may be the son of the Murray family that founded the Nappanee News. It was also reported that John Murray assumed control of the Newspaper operation after his father retired. Grace Kantz was a daughter of Jacob Oscar Kantz (1857-1944) whom was the well known city attorney of Nappanee. The grave marker for John Reed Murray contains a Shriners insignia.
