Notes. Seems to be a problem with George S Murray's birth year.
Tombstone was transcribed as 4-14-1834
He was younger than James and older than William
He was born in GA; whereas James was born in SC.
Mom & Dad are belived to be married in 1836.
Mom would have only been 14 in 1834.
Maybe it was 1843.
Need to verify tombstone.

New Info: Birthdate copied from family bible by Coleman family abt 1980 for Wayne Barrett.
