Per the Daily Oserver, Mr. Logan and two friends had a dispute that resulted in the death of all three. They are buried within a few feet of each other.
W. M. Logan, a grocery merchant of Moultrie, shot and killed Jack and
Cleveland Calhoun, brothers, and was in turn slain by the latter. The
triple tragedy occurred shortly before 5 o'clock in the afternoon in the
feed barn of G. W. Milligan in northwest Moultrie.
Logan started the battle, firing five shots in rapid succession. Two of
them hit Cleve Calhoun and one penetrated Jack's body in the vicinity of
his heart. After being mortally wounded, Cleve Calhoun drew his own
weapon and fired five shots, one of which landed true and the merchant
sank to the floor, dying without ever regaining consciousness.
The Calhoun brothers staggered out of the barn, into the driving rainstorm.
Jack fell a few feet away, but Cleve, with blood spurting from the two awful
wounds in the center of his chest, struggled on for nearly 100 feet before
collapsing in the middle of the muddy street.
