Surnames: John Espy

I am trying to find out any family information about a John Espy who was a Pony Express rider - there is an article about him from "Pack Horse Stage Lines and Camel Express" - a company active in the 1860's in Grant County, Oregon. John was shot by Indians on one of his pack trips. He did live but we'd like to know who is parents were, etc. Any information will be appreciated.
