If anyone has interest or information on the Murdocks of Orleans COunty, NY of 19th century, I need your help. I am descended from Jesse Wood Murdock, born there in 1812. Given his middle name, I suspect he is a son of John Murdock and Betsey (Elizabeth?) Wood, who are listed as parents of various individuals buried in local cemeteries. Jesse was listed in 1850 census of Carlton, Orleans Co. Also listed in same town was one Bradford Murdock. He was three years younger. I don't know if they were related, or if either were connected to John and Betsey.
