I am searching for any information anyone may have on the family history of William Murdoch. The William Murdoch was known by word of mouth through my family that he went down on the Titanic and left behind a widow and seven children. I have discovered that the William Murdoch, First Officer, Titanic married an older woman named Ada and never had any children, according to record. I am lead to believe that Murdoch may have had these children out of wedlock. The other possibilty is there was rumour of another Murdoch of the Merseyside area in Liverpool whom had severalchildren.I am in the process of looking for birth and death certificates to prove who's who. But it is the family legacy that he did go down on the Titanic and I don't think it is a farce.
