Your welcome, and Thank You for your suggestions!
I do have a copy of the 1850 Census. When we found it, we were sure he was our James, and when we found the will he wasn't mentioned. We were told James left home at an early age and joined the Civil War, and would never talk about his family, he even received a letter one time and burned it without opening it, so we thought it a possibility that he could still be ours, but can't prove it one way or the other. We are checking out all the James we can find in his age bracket. Found him on Civil War Census, and Court House Records have him listed being in the Civil War, but Archives can't find the records.
His first son is named after the mothers father, and the second son has the middle name James (My grandfather)
Neither of the first two daughters is named after the mothers mother. I didn't post it, but his info is listed on RootsWeb. James Murdock m. to Mary Elizabeth Hice if you want to glance at it.
One other thing I saw posted is the parents of Elizabeth Kerns were from Pa. I think I saw posted once it was only about an hour or two from where my James lived with his family, but I haven't been able to confirm that.
What branch of the family are you researching? I could check and see if I have any info on them.
I would be glad to mail you a copy of the will. You can email me directly if you like.
