At this date he came to Canada and thence to Vigo county, which has been his home since 1848. In 1873 he opened a coal mine on his farm, and it has proved to be of the very best quality.

In 1849 he was married to Elizabeth WINNINGHAM. http://debmurray.tripod.com/vigo/bio6a.htmhttp://debmurray.tripod.com/vigo/bio6a.htm http://archive.org/stream/historyofvigocou00brad/historyofvigocou00brad_djvu.txthttp://archive.org/stream/historyofvigocou00brad/historyofvigocou00brad_djvu.txt Coal N” crops out on Lost creek, on Alexander McPherson's place, Section 16,Township 12, Range 8, which is forty-two feet above Terre Haute and therefore gives a Indiana.
