I am a desecendant of Elliott Murdock and wife Eliz. Magill. I have been searching for Elliott's father for more than 20 years and was excited to read this posting which appears to confirm other information I received recently from another contact. I learned that William Murdock was a son of Hamilton Murdock, an Irish immigrant who brought his family (incl. son Wm.) to SC in 1767. If you don't have any info on Hamilton Murdock,I would be glad to share what I have. I would also like to ask what evidence you have to confirm Elliott as son of William. I will send an email also. Thanks!
