I do have a bit of info on James Murdock, of Va. The World Connect Project has info listed under #1149, Ancestral Families of Brenda Block.
Children with Elizabeth Kerns, born 11 Jul 1820 in Ohio, Married 26 Jun 1845, Highland Co, Ohio: Children:
1. James Murcock, born about 1846 Logan Co,
2. Moriessa Murdock, born Dec 1849, Logan Co.
3. Frances W. Murdock, born 15 Jun 1853, Bokes Creek Twp, Logan, Oh.
4. Dora Isabel Murdock, born 2 Oct 1855, Oh.
James Murdock's 1st wife was Susannah Akers.
They married in Greenbrier Co, Va, now WV, 29 Sep 1814. I found the record at the courthouse in Lewisburg, WV. James, born ca 1795, probably lived in the part of Greenbrier Co, that became Monroe Co, in 1799. He is listed in the 1810 Monroe Co, Census as living with parents James, Sr, and mother, Elizabeth, he being the 1 male, age 10 to 16 years of age.
The children I have listed for this James, Jr, and Susannah are:
Andrew Murdock, born 1817, Va, now WV
John Murdock, born ca 1818, WV
Harvey Murdock, born 2 Jan 1820, Ohio
Addison Murdock, born 6 Oct 1821, Ohio
Harrison Murdock, born ca 1822
Allen Murdock, born ca 1824, Oh
Eliza Murdock, born 13 Jun 1828, Paint Twp, Highland Co, Oh
Unknown female Murdock, born ca 1830.
Info on this family is posted on the website:
Some researchers believe James, Sr. came from the line of Murdocks of Maryland. A William Murdock born around 1700, Prince George Co, Md, married Anne Addison, dau of Col John Addison. Since James, Jr. named a son, Addison, there might be a connection.
Hope this sheds some light on the James Murdock family.
