I am searching for the parents of John Mcpherson b. 1823/24 NJ,d. April 30 1904,Conersville Ind. he has at least one brother I know of for sure as he is listed in Johns Obit, Philip Mcpherson who moved to Hamlin MO from Indiana I believe. There are very few records on Philip it seems this must have been an unusual name at the time or perhaps it was his middle and he used it instead. I have found a Philip Mcpherson in Fayet Co. Indiana 1850 census who was born in NJ and he has a Ann Mcpherson aged 72 born in Scotland, If anyone has anything simalar please feel free to contact me .
