My husband is descended from James Murdoch who came to Australia in 1852.We know that his brothers Thomas and John and two sisters went to America. One sister married a COE, one a HAYWARD. John I believe married but had no children. Thomas was a grocer and died in Chicago in 1909 unmarried, leaving money to the family in Australia. The parents of these were John & Jane (m.n. Nichol) they came from Forres, Moray. Sometime after WW2 a descendent MURDOCH COE came out to Australia to visit relatives here. We would love to find any connections.
