LOGAN-PRICHARD in Upshur/Howard/Midland/Dallas/Dimmit Cos., TX ca.1880

LOGAN-PRICHARD in Upshur/Howard/Midland/Dallas/Dimmit Cos., TX ca.1880
LOGAN-PRICHARD in Deschutes/Lane/Coos Cos., OR and King/Lincoln Cos.,WA

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 ??????ís husbands and families
2) Mr. Loganís birth family and siblings
3) A descendancy outline for Mr. LOGANís sister Lydia Ellen LOGAN who married Andrew J. PRICHARD and the expansion of this family in nearby counties and several other surnames shown below.


Primary SURNAMES below:
LOGAN, PRICHARD, MINTER, CROCKER, HICKS, McCORMICK and HESTER
Essentially they were quite spread out:
LOGAN was in Upsher Co. TX (northeast)
PRICHARD in Howard (west), Midland (west), Dallas (northeast), and Dimmit (south) Cos. TX
- - - - - - - - and also in Deschutes, Lane and Coos Cos., OR
- - - - - - - - - -(also surnames OLSEN, JONES, GRAHAM, VanTHEIL)
- - - - - - - - and also in King and Lincoln Cos., WA, and San Francisco Co., CA
MINTER in Tarrant (northeast) Co., TX
- - - - - - - - - -(also surnames CASTILLON, STERRET, GREENFIELD, CARNEY and PECK)
CROCKER in El Paso (west) and Potter (panhandle) Cos., TX
- - - - - - - - - -(also surnames ROBESON ,GOGDELL and OSBORN)
HICKS in Taylor (central) Co., TX
McCORMICK in Howard (west) Co., TX
HESTER in Howard (west) and Dimmit (south) Cos., TX (also surname HINDS)
Of course they probably went elsewhere but I saw records in these counties, mostly in northeast, TX.


All SURNAMES included below:
Alderman, Blackwell, Blakeney, BROADDUS, CARNEY, CASTILLON, Childress, COGDELL, CROCKER, Cruse, Ford, GRAHAM, Graves, GREENFIELD, Griffin, HARPER, HESTER, HICKS, HINDS, HOLLENBECK, JONAS, Jones, Kelley, Lindstrom, Logan, McCORMICK, Magee, Medley, Miller, MINTER, OLSEN, OSBORN, PECK, Perez, Pickle, ROBESON, Stephens, STERETT, Thigpen, VanTHEIL, Weaver, Winslow


Iím looking for cousins from the LOGAN, PRICHARD, MINTER, CROCKER, HICKS, McCORMICK and HESTER 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.


Iím interested in Martha Susan WEAVER b.ca.1856. The story I have from my mother-in-law in the 1970ís 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 1880ís 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 Ė 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-
--Ira J. - - - - - - - 1848- - - - - m. Margaret Elizabeth ANDERSON 1848 TX-1929 Upshur Co., TX

I wonder if any of the descendants of Lydia Ellen PRICHARD, 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 Lydia Ellenís 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 and some from tress at Family Search and Rootsweb if I can believe them. 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,
