I am searching for any information regarding this man. I have found him in the 1820, 1830, 1840 and 1850 census of Trumbull Co. OH In each his name was spelled differently: McMurrain, McMurren, McMurrin and McMurran. It could even be McMorran
In the 1850 census he is shown to be 94 yrs and b. Ireland. His wife is still alive, Elizabeth, and 94 and also b. Ireland. Near him are two other McMurren's, John and Thomas - possibly sons. Also in 1790 Fayette PA there is a John McNerlin and 1810 Brooke Co. VA a McNerlon. Not sure if this is one and the same man.
This search evolves from a Rebecca (McMarland?) who married a Peter Close and the family moved to Carroll Co., OH, with the children variously saying they were born in PA, VA., OH. Rebecca's last name is a big mystery as McMarland doesn't seem to exist so am searching various spellings.
I have just returned from Salt Lake and could find nothing on this man, not even a death record, in Trumbull Co.
I'm not even sure I'm on the right trail but am trying everything. If anyone knows anything of John McMurrin who lived in Trumbull Co OH and died at a great age I would be most appreciate of any help.
