Case of Patty Murray
Letter of George Attwood, St. Augustine Fl
Sept 5, 1870
St. Augustine Fla.
5th Sept 1870

Capt. J. H. Dunkee
Jacksonville

Dear Sir,

Again leaving reference to your subject of 31st ultimo, and mine of 3rd inst I beg to state.

That Patty Murray (now Patty Martin) is at present on a visit to Geo Reddin at Jacksonville, and is expected to return here on Saturday next.

She was married to Murray at Beaufort S. C. by the
Rev. Mr. (Mansfield) French during the War. and her present husband Martin of this place and Wm McCrea and wife of your city were
witnesses to her marriage.

There seems to be ? and evidence of her legal marriage to Murray and it state these circumstances that you may avail yourself of her presence while now at Jacksonville to substantiate
her marriage. Or should she return here before you may be able to find her. I will do the needful here.

It also appears that she was married to Murray after the manner of slavery ? ages, before she was married by Father French who was a regularly ordained minister and a prominent
Superintendant of Freedmen in the Beaufort district S. C.

Respectfully yours,
Geo W. Atwood
