In Reply to: James E Murdock, Actor, Amer Civil War, Cincinnati, OH by Duchess Martin of 1462

Update:

According to this link: http://tiny.cc/MurdockSamuelK (Appleton's Annual Cyclopaedia and Register of Important Events of the Year 1891), Samuel K Murdock was the younger brother of James E Murdock. Samuel b. Feb, 1816, d. Dec 15, 1891, Philadelphia graduated with a medical degree & served in the PA Militia in 1849. He went to CA where he worked as a doctor, a miner, a merchant, and eventually became an actor like his brother. He served in the U.S. Army during the Civil War. He retired from acting in 1867 and opened a school of elocution in Philadelphia.

Another Google listing about circus performers mentioned the aunt of James E. Murdock was a Hannah Murdock who adopted an orphan who became a well known horseback rider in the circus.

Duchess Martin (still not a Murdock descendent)
