A few years ago Jodi McDaniel Lowery started writing short articles about Murray citizens that she found especially interesting. She intended to eventually publish her collection as a book but recently concluded that she probably would not ever actually produce such a book. Instead she recently granted exclusive permission to this museum to permanently post every one of her copyrighted articles for the enjoyment of all the people who have an interest in Murray County, Georgia's history.

This new section is titled Murray Characters because each of these people were in some way very unique. Readers will recognize some of their names but others they probably have never heard about.

The museum thanks Jodi for agreeing to share her literary efforts. If she produces more such articles in the future, we hope that she will allow us to add them to this unusual collection.

Caution: The author has copyrighted each of these articles so they cannot be copied to other websites nor printed in any publication without the express, written permission of the author.
