SURNAMES included below: Brader, CAGLE, Gautney, Godsey, GRAVES, Holifield, Jones, Langford, LOGAN, Loyd, MINSHEW, Owens, Phillips, Rutledge, RYAN, Starr, TERRY, Walker, Watts, WEAVER.

Im looking for WEAVER, MINSHEW, and RYAN descendants who might know about the murder near Gilmer, Upshur Co., TX of my Martha Susan WEAVER GRAVES LOGAN ?????? b.ca.1856-d.ca.1883.

Im interested in Martha Susan WEAVER b.ca.1856. The story I have from my mother-in-law in the 1970s goes like this.
Martha m1.ca.1872 Mr. GRAVES and had Mary ca.1873 and Joseph T. b.ca.1875 (m. Sally CAGLE)
--- - - - Mr. Graves died about 1875-1877
Martha m2.1877 James R. LOGAN and had Ola L. 1879-1912 (m. William L. TERRY) and Laura b.ca.1880
--- - - - James R. Logan died ca.1880
Martha m3.ca.1880 wealthy farmer with plate in his head.
--- - - - Wealthy famer kills wife, some kids, 1 negro boy, and himself in 1880s near Gilmer, Upshur Co., TX.


Martha comes from this WEAVER family:

John Thomas WEAVER 1831 GA1912 Ark, m.ca.1859 GA to Nancy 1834- .
--Anna born abt 1852 in Georgia
--Martha (Susan) born abt 1856 in Ga got murdered?
--Sarah born abt 1858 in Ga
--Seaborn Jackson born abt 1860 in Ga
--Adam (?) born abt 1861 in Ala
--Joseph C. born in 1864 in Ala
--Mary Frances (called Fannie) born June 22, 1870 in Ala, m. James H. MINSHEW

I wonder if any of the descendants of the siblings of Martha Susan know anything about her murder?

Here is a short list of descendants of Mary Frances (Fannie) WEAVER who m. James H. MINSHEW. Have you heard the story of the man with the metal plate killing Mary Frances sister Martha?
