Obituary: Ouachita Telegraph, 20 Sep 1878, Ouachita Parish, LA. The Ouachita Telegraph
Friday, 20 Sept 1878, page 3, column 3

"OBITUARY. HENRY NEWTON MURRY, the subject
of this notice, was born in the State of Georgia in the year 1846. His parents moved to Union parish, La., in 1849, where he was raised. During his youth he was noted for a strict sense of honor, truth and morality, to which principles he strictly adhered to the time of his death. During the past six years he has been residing on the Ouachita river in this parish, where he had a host of friends and no enemies. During the past summer his health has been delicate, and thinking he would be benefitted (sic) by going on a camp hunt into the hill country in company with some of his most intimate friends, he left home in the latter part of August, and after having been out one week he was violently attacked by swamp fever. His friends at once secured a comfortable place for him, and during his short illness he received every attention both from his friends and parties living in the immediate neighborhood. Dr. McCormack was at once called to see him and manifested the greatest interest in behalf of his patient, but in spite of the attention received he died at Vernon, Jackson parish, on the 5th instant, in the 33d year of his age. We offer sympathy to his aged parents (who yet reside in Union parish) in the loss of a noble son. God has seen fit to take our much esteemed friend from us. That handsome face we will never more behold. That hand which we have so cordially grasped now lies in the cold grave. The noble spirit which dwelt within him has been called to its Maker. We hope to meet our dear friend in a better world, where our spirits may commune forever.

A FRIEND.
Ouachita Parish, La., Sept. 16, 878.
