Murray Family in Warren County, 1800's

I'm researching the my Murray family history. Here is the information I have: Frank P. Murray, son of Peter Murray and Ellen (Cain) Murray, was born January 28, 1855, at Allegheny, Pennsylvania, and came to Iowa as a small boy with his parents. They settled in Warren County, near Des Moines, making their home with a relative. In 1880, the Murrays purchased prairie land southeast of Templeton, Iowa, in Eden Township. Frank boarded with Albert Miskimins, who lived nearby, until he built his home in 1886. His sister, Rose, taught the country school and lived with him until his marriage in 1888 to Anna Seyller, daughter of John and Rose (Heitzler) Seyller. Anna was born June 8, 1868 at Geneseo, Illinois. Frank and Anna had seven children: Rose Ellen, Mayme, John, Nora, Peter, Florence, and Arthur. Please email me if you have any additional information. Thanks in advance.
