Julia & James Stokes: Thought to be a picture taken about the time of their marriage, 1877. Julia Ann Bridges married James Wilbur Stokes Aug. 05, 1877. James Wilbur Stokes was a Texas Ranger when he was 16 years old, while in the Rangers it is indicated that he wrote a song, titled Texas Ranger, it was written in 1873. It is sung now by Michael Martin Murphy. In Sept. of 1876 he joined the U.S. Army under the name James McMahon. {Believed to be because of his age} He signed up for the 7th Calvary after the Little Bighorn and spent the winter of 1876 with the Army looking for Sitting Bull. In March of 1878 he was given a medical discharge.

Anna Elizabeth Shrive, she was a teacher at the Chicago Normal School before she moved to Springdale in Washington State in 1903. She taught school at Walker's Prairie. In March of 1906 she married her long time fiance', John Patrick Stokes in Colville, Wa. and moved to Twisp, Washington where the Stokes family had homesteads. Anna's mother Mary Ann Shrive moved with her and had her own homestead adjoining the Stokes on Frazer Creek.

Although only one man in this picture is known for sure, it is believed that the older gentleman seated on the left is James Stokes, father to J.W. Stokes seated to the right and to the two men standing behind him. Thought to be Patrick Stokes and John Stokes. The shorter man on the far right is believed to be "Bob" Bridges. He would have been brother-in-law to J.W. Stokes. If someone knows this to be different I would like to hear of any changes.

A portrait of John Murray taken at the P. J. Schadde and Son studio, Baraboo Wisconsin, in 1890. John Murray lived at Seven Mile Creek when he first moved to Wisconsin {about 1855-6} then later he moved to Baraboo where from 1860 to 1891 he had a feed store. In 1891 him and his wife Ann moved to Chicago to be closer to his daughter Mary Ann Shrive.

Laurie Buzzard Thomas Murray from my family was born in Co. Galway Ireland in 1807, lived in Wisconsin but died in Chicago, 1892. His nephew Thomas also was born in Co. Galway, Ireland 1837. You have lots of information on your Murray's, I don't think they are related to mine. My family immigrated after 1846.
