I am a descendant of Hamilton Murdoch (1732-1805)and his son William (1759-?). Hamilton immigarted from County Down, Ireland in 1767-1768 to SC bringing along his family. The some of the family move to GA (Cobb County) then three branches move to Texas. To Dallas (my branch), Emory ( small town 30-50 mi. east of Dallas) and Galveston. I have contacts with the other two branches. Wiliam had a son Thomas Hamilton(1797-??), Thomas, I think, moved with with others in the SC community to GA. Thomas had Cary C. (1820-1879). Cary had Solomon Alexander (1854-1919) my G Grandfather. Solomon moved to Texas as a young man, he as here for the 1880 census. I do not have any Margaret listed but that does not mean she is not related. If you can send me some additional info I can forward it to my other contacts.
