I am looking for information about Griffin MURDOCK, born 19 Jun 1907 in GA, died 4 Apr 1969 in Irwin County GA (Georgia Death Index data).

He married Chunnie Cummings before 1920 and left the family in the 1930's. They had at least two sons - Ed in 1927 and Robert in 1929. Chunnie is in the 1930 census with her sons in Chattooga County GA, but Griffin is in the Army in Oklahoma in the 1930 census.

Griffin was the son of William J. and Linna (--?--) Murdock, with siblings Ethel (1899), Ola (1901), Gordon (1904), Hattie (1911), Clyde (1913) and Willie (1916), and resided in Chattooga County GA in the 1900, 1910 and 1920 census. Will J. Murdock was born in June 1876 in GA, and died before the 1920 census. Linna (or Linnie) --?-- was born October 1882 in GA, and may have married again after 1920.

Will J. Murdock's parents were Benjamin (born ca 1825 SC) and Angia (born ca 1855 in SC) (--?--) Murdock, and his siblings were Nancy (1874) and Addie (1879), and perhaps more. They were in Dirt Town, Chattooga County GA in the 1880 census.

Does anyone have information about these MURDOCK families - their spouses names, additional children, etc.?
