Hi Tracy, I am connected to the Murdocks of Monroe co, WV. John Bowyer married Anne June Blythe Murdock. Anne was married to a Thomas Murdock. She had possibly as many as five childen with him before he died around 1828. Anne then remarried to my ggg grandfather John Bowyer. I do have the 1850, 60, and 70 Census records for Monroe Co, so please contact me and perhaps we can figure out who James Lewis Murdock's father was.
