J. Perry Griggs

Special Deputy Marshal Griggs was shot and killed as he attempted to arrest two moonshiners in Cleburne County, AL.

Only five months earlier, Special Deputy Marshal Griggs had been shot at by a man that he and a fellow Deputy Marshal were attempting to arrest in Cherokee County, GA. A book he was carrying over his heart stopped a bullet that would have otherwise penetrated his heart in that incident.
