stabbed in the back by Green Murphy. We are unable to give particulars, but learn that a warrant
has been issued for the arrest of Murphy."

Another tragedy --- The Lancaster Aegus of Saturday has the following account of another tragedy in Garrard county,
As Dr, Evans was coming to town on Saturday, with the witnesses for his sons, they fell in company with George R. Hackley, Henry A. Kurtz, and Dr. Tillott, just beyond Dr. Hillis house, and Dr. Evans rode up on the outside of them as they were passing the house, and remarked at the time, "He didn't think they would shoot three clever men to kill one mean one." After they passed the house, and were just in the turn of the road, a shot was fired, which passed through the lappell of the coat of James Brim, and before they had proceded ten steps, another shot was fired, striking Jesse May in the back, below the right shoulder.
May retained his position on his horse for about a hundred yards, and fell in attempting to dismount. The remainder of the party with the exception of Samuel Gordon (also recognized with the party) galloped off at the first fire, for town; but left his horse, and leaped over into the pasture on the opposite side of the road from the firing, the assailants being between him and the town when two shots were fired at him without effect.
Several persons from the town immediately went to May, and physicians were called, but two late, the vital spark had fled. He was brought to town and placed in a coffin, and the next day he was taken to his friends on Sugar Creek and buried,
Great excitement prevailed among the Evanes, and they thought of immediately repairing to the house and storming it, but gave up their designs. Dr. Hill and Joseph Murphy were arrested, and a guard placed over them, to await their trial before an examination Court. They were brought up on Wednesday last, before Esquires Teeters and Ray, and the case was continued till Wednesday next, at 9 A.M.
We shall wait till after the trial, before we say anything in regard to it, and we wish from the bottom of our heart, that we may never again be called upon to note the death of another of these parties, but we fear that such is not the case ---- We shall never feel secure till the last vestige of the parties is removed from the country.
William M Jake Teater was married to Susan Ann May. Her uncle Jesse May her father Jackson May and brother where all killed in this feud of the Teaters Evans Hills Murphys
