About 5 years ago I bought the letters of the Murray family of Cortland NY. They were on display at my ANG unit with other WW1 items(JohnMurray died in WW1, 1918, at the age of 24,sister Kate, Mother Margaret, Father Daniel). I plan on donating the letters to the historical society. Does anyone have any photos or info about the family? Thanks, Deb

We moved to update New York, near Cortland. I wonder if there is any family that would want these letters. I still plan to find a home for them. I just found them again while unpacking old boxes. Thanks, Debbie
