I'm trying to locate the birth place of Alexander Anderson Murdock b. 17 Oct 1812 in Aberdeen, Scotland.He came to the states and located in Ithaca, Tompkins, NY.He is found on the 1830 Census.He married Eliza Newcomb. They had five children. John Knox 4 Jul 1842; James McAlister 7 apr 1845; Mary Emma 12 Feb 1848; Eliza Newcomb 27 Jun 1851; and Charles Summer 24 Aug 1853. I have several pictures of the Murdock (h) family members and Alexander Anderson Murdock(h)'s original box that he made and brought his personal items in by ship from Scotland.I'm also looking for information on Mary Emma Murdock. She married Edwin Amos Barnes 11 Mar 1866.Edwin died or left Mary Emma after four years of marriage.If I find and confirm this marriage and the death of Edwin I can link my Barnes family name back to the 1500's.Thank you.
