Jonaathan was born Feb. 28, 1811 in TN and died Aug. 20, 1860 in Rock Bluff, NE. He married Elizabeth Burger 1829 daughter of Michael Burger and Margaret Lidgerwood. Elizabeth was born Nov. 25, 1813 in East TN and died June 7, 1889 in Lebanon, KS. I have Joshua in the 1810 Census in Logan County, KY and the 1820 census in Sumner County, TN, 1830 Census they were in MO. and prior to 1840 they purchased land near McGirk, Moniteau county, MO.
The big problem is that the Thomas Murray family also had a Jonathan and a Joshua that were in TN, and Cole County, MO. so it is easy to mix them up. Also belonging to the Thomas Murray family are Jobash, Christopher those are the one's I know of.
This is why it is so hard to keep the two family's separate and why we have to until or if we ever prove a connection.
Jonathan Born in TN lived in Missouri until 1851 then move to Mills County, Iowa and later in 1854 moved across the river to Rock Bluff, NE. The town of Rock Bluff ceased to exist in 1889. Jonathan's son Joshua (b. 1833 MO),raised cattle and other livestock near Platsmouth, NE. Later moving to Central City, NE and then to Pender, NE. This Joshua died in 1917 and was buried near Platsmouth, NE. My grandfather was the youngest son of Joshua (1833) and was also Joshua Louis Murray (1876) the youngest of 9 children. I am going to try to get to Platsmouth in the next week or two and see if I can get any further information.
