Colonel Civil War (Edgar Murray)
"Robert K Krick's LEE'S COLONELS lists no John A. Murrays as Majors or Colonels in the Army of Northern Va or in the other field commands of the Confederate Army. There is a Lieutenant, John Adair Murray, who served as an Aide de Camp on the staff of General General John B. ( Prince John) McGruder. It could be that John Murrary was called "Colonel" after the war given his standing as a staff officer." -- Dan Morrow

General Notes: Husband - Anthony Reed


Although no Anthony Reed is to be found christened in the Parish Church of Doncaster during the appropriate period, there was one christened on February 24 1754 in Bradford, Yorkshire. If this is the correct guy, his father's name was, also, Anthony. It appears that Anthony's first wife, Mary Ledger, died and he remarried.
