I have several listings for William McMurry with the first one being born in Ireland and imigrating to the East Coast of the US with his family and the majority of the McMurry's. It is believe that most McMurry's are of Scotch'Irish Decent and most moved together to the states. The First William that I have info on was born in 1730 and died around 1798. He marriedMary with no clear record of her birth but death in 1775. They had 6 children as follows" JohnOct 27, 1752 James born 1760 Thomas Born 1765 Janet aka Jane born April 29, 1768 Agnes Born 1769 Robert Born Dec 6 1772 My book is amply named: MCMURRY FAMILY DESCENDENTS OF WILLIANM AND MARY MCMURRY 1730-1986 My grandmother Helen B McMurry gave out as much information as possible in the writing of this book which is 448 pages of fascinating material on our McMurry family with many letters that were written and pictures of many. George Washington factors in our family history as well as Daniel Boone. If anyone would like information, please feel free to contact me.
