Your George Murdock most certainly ties in with my Murdocks somehow -- we just have to figure out how!! My Martha I. Tincher married a James Lewis Murdock. James was born in 1845. Martha remarried (I believe following James' death) a Michael Pitzer. The names are too close to be a coincidence! We have to tie this up -- James Lewis Murdock was born in Monroe County, VA (now WV). These families are linked, I know it!
