I am looking for the parents of William Henry Murdock (b. 1820 in Indiana or Illinois)

William Henry was half Indian; his father married an Indian lady from Minnesota. William Henry was a hunter, trapper and farmer. During the Civil War he was a scout for Gen. Sherman and accompanied Sherman on his march to the sea.

William Henry married Susan Hill; date and location are unknown. He was buried at Mahila, IA. in 1903, at the age of 92. She was buried at Dennison, IA.

Francis Marian Murdock was born of this marriage. It is not known how many other children were born.

Francis Marian Murdock married Martha Baer at Dennison, IA. on Sept. 27 1882. Martha was born in Pittsburg, PA. and died in Jan. 1940. Her ancestors came from Holland. I don't know where Martha is buried.

Francis Marian was a carpenter.

Francis and Martha had ten children.
