Re: Sam Murray-Iowa Territory- 1838. From NY
Thanks for your posting re: Samuel Murray of Iowa Territory in the 1830s.I have no information about him subsequent to his letter of 1838. His parents came from N. Ireland- his father was Patrick & Catholic, his mother, Anna & Presbyterian. There is reason to believe he served in Congress when Iowa was still a Territory. He was probably not married in 1838. I have no information about a James David Murray, nor doknow if Sam himself was Presbyterian or Catholic.
