Classification: Query Surnames: I am also a descendant of James McMurray and his son William. This James, together with his siblings, moved in 1788 or 1789 to Bradford's Mill (now Bradfordsville, Marion County, KY). All of the children left their father, William McMurray's farm on the Cowpasture River in Augusta County (now Botetourt County, VA).
James was married twice in Kentucky, his first wife was Jane McEwee ( or McElroy, I prefer the former). Jane was an orphan, born circa 1772 (based on marriage info). Jane died 06 Oct 1797. Second wife is Margaret (Peggy) Priest Smith, they were married 20 Jan 1799. My ancestor, William McMurray, was the oldest son of Jane & James. Other children of the first marriage was Janet Jane, Thomas, Sally, and James.
If this is the James & William McMurray that you are researching I have ample in formation for you.
