LOGAN-TRUITT-HIGH-HOOTON-CAMPBELL-HARRISON - Upshur/Morris/Cass Cos.,TX - 1880

Please help! I am trying find cousins to help me identify the murderer of Martha Susan WEAVER GRAVES LOGAN ?????? b.ca.1856-d.ca.1883 near Gilmer, TX.
Her third husband, a wealthy farmer near Gilmer, who had a metal late in his head killed her, some kids, a negro boy and himself.
What was his name and when and where did this event occur?
If you have heard of this please continue reading and be sure to get in touch with me.
If you belong to the family listed below and want to provide more info or corrections please reply or write back.
Peace,

Below you will find more on:
1) Martha Susan WEAVER GRAVES LOGAN ??????’s husbands and families
2) Mr. Logan’s birth family and siblings
3) A descendancy outline for Mr. LOGAN’s sister Sarah Ann LOGAN 1841-1916 m.1860 Edward R.TRUITT 1834-1869 and the expansion of this family in nearby counties and several other surnames shown below.

Primary SURNAMES below: LOGAN, TRUITT, HIGH, HOOTON, CAMPBELL, and HARRISON
Essentially:
LOGAN was in Upsher Co. TX
TRUITT was in Morris & Cass Cos., TX
HIGH was in Morris, Cass & Dallas Cos., TX
HOOTON was in Morris, Cass, Gregg, & Cherokee Cos., TX
CAMPBELL was in Morris Co., TX
HARRISON was in Morris, Grayson & Bowie Cos., TX
Of course they probably went elsewhere but I saw records in these counties, mostly in northeast, TX.

All SURNAMES included below: Bass, CAMPBELL, Coffman, Cranberg, Davis, Doherty, Edwards, Ellison, Finley, Flinn, Garrett, Gladdis, Goolsby, Graves, Haley, Hall, Harris, HARRISON, Hass, Haywood, Higginbotham, HIGH, HOOTON, Irvin, Kennedy, Kirkpatrick, Lanham, Lee, Lilley, LOGAN, McDonald, Plumb, Quarles, Richardson, Robertson, Rowland, Sachtleben, Sipes, Smallwood, Starrett, Stephenson, Taylor, TRUITT, Vaughn, Weaver

I’m looking for cousins from the LOGAN, TRUITT, HIGH, HOOTON, CAMPBELL, and HARRISON families shown below who might know about the murder near Gilmer, Upshur Co., TX of their great aunt Martha Susan WEAVER GRAVES LOGAN ?????? b.ca.1856-d.ca.1883 by her farmer husband who had a metal plate in his head.


I’m interested in Martha Susan WEAVER b.ca.1856. The story I have from my mother-in-law in the 1970’s goes like this.
Martha m1.ca.1872 Mr. GRAVES and had Mary ca.1873 and Joseph T. b.ca.1875 (he m. Sally CAGLE)
--- - - - Mr. Graves died about 1875-1877
Martha m2.1877 James R. LOGAN and had Ola L. 1879-1912 (she m. William L. TERRY) and Laura b.ca.1880
--- - - - James R. Logan died ca.1880
Martha m3.ca.1880 wealthy farmer with metal plate in his head.
--- - - - Wealthy famer kills wife, some kids, 1 negro boy, and himself in 1880’s near Gilmer, Upshur Co., TX.

Martha, above, was married second to James R. LOGAN 1846-1880.


James comes from this LOGAN family:
James A. LOGAN 1808 KY-1856 Morris Co., TX, m. Sarah C. HICKMAN 1819-1856
--(lived; 1850 Lincoln Co., KY, and kids to TX)
--Susan E. - - - - 1839-1890 m. Joseph A. NEWBERRY 1835 MS- (looking for descendants)
--Sarah A. - - - - 1840-1916 m. Edward R. TRUITT 1834-1869
--Lydia Ellen – 1842-1923 m. Andrew J. PRICHARD 1843-1918
--William B. - -- 1844-1865
--James R. - - - 1846-1880 m1. Melvina DANIELS 1846 TX-, m2.1877 Martha S. WEAVER 1856 GA-aft 1880
--Ira J. - - - - - - - 1848- - - - - m. Margaret Elizabeth ANDERSON 1848 TX-1929 Upshur Co., TX

I wonder if any of the descendants of Sarah A. TRUITT, sister-in-law to Martha Susan WEAVER GRAVES LOGAN, know anything about her murder?
Have you heard the story of the man with the metal plate killing your grandmother Sarah’s sister-in-law Martha?

Please let me know which of the above you are related to and who told you about the murder. Is this a real story or have I been pulled into researching a tall tale?

The above descendancy chart is a first cut draft created from census records at FamilySearch and deaths via Find-A-Grave. I probably made some errors connecting the families. If you want me to add or delete from this outline of descendants I will be glad to get more info and make corrections.

Peace,
