Murray Damaged by Storm, 1878

From The Daily Constitution
Atlanta, Ga.
May 5, 1878

(STORM DAMAGE)

The storm on Tuesday night of last week was very severe and destructive a few miles east of Spring Place, Murray county. Some fifteen or twenty houses were blown down, and eight or ten persons injured, none, however fatally. Hundreds of forest trees were uprooted, obstructing the various roads, and a great number of fruit trees were torn up by the roots and carried several hundred yards by the force of the wind.
