Social Security Death Index shows the following:

ROBERT MURDOCK        born: 28 Aug 1895       died: Sep 1963       Last Residence: Kansas SSN: 511-22-6073       issued in Kansas

I hope this is your Robert Murdock. You can order his Social Security application and get his parents' names.

There was an Ethel M. Loe age 21, born in Oklahoma, single, living with Rachel J. Loe, age 56, born in Pennsylvania, widow, in Cherokee Township, Montgomery County, Kansas, according to the 1920 census. Series: T625 Roll: 541 Page: 63B

If this is your Ethel, then your marriage date just might be wrong.

1910 > KANSAS > MONTGOMERY > CHEROKEE TWP
Series: T624 Roll: 448 Page: 2A
In this 1910 census, the head of the household was David B. Loe, age 70, born in Ohio, his 3rd marriage, married to Rachel J for 30 years. Ethel's age is 11.

I think I found your Bruce in the 1900 census!!! Not too far from the Loe family - 3 or 4 doors down

MURDOCK Robert
~ Lizzie
~ Mary Lee?
~ Aleck
~ Minnie
~ Bessie
~ Bruce
Has the same people but also shows an older daughter, Mary (Lee?) age 22 born in Iowa and Minnie is also shown as a servant in the Duncan household in Parker Township Series: T623 Roll: 491 Page: 25B

In the 1900 census, I think Mary was listed as a servant for the McNault family, age 11, June 1888, Iowa Scotland Scotland
Series: T623 Roll: 491 Page: 25A

The only Murdock from this family that I could find in the 1920 census was Aleck. I am sure it is an indexing error or a misspelling. Aleck is listed in
1920 > KANSAS > MONTGOMERY > CHEROKEE TWP
Series: T625 Roll: 541 Page: 61B

I hope this helps. I am not related - just took some time to try and help. Take care.
