James MURRAY/MURRY of Greene Co., Tennessee
Posted by: Sam D. Lawson (ID *****3821) Date: August 16, 2011 at 07:01:04
  of 1943

Looking for information on James MURRAY (possibly MURRY) who married to Sarah BIRDWELL in Washington County, Tennessee, on 20 August, 1840. Sarah was a dughter of Alexander and Elizabeth (Copass) BIRDWELL and born ca 1817. James was born ca 1821. They had children: John Alexander MURRAY born in 1841 in Tennessee; William MURRAY born in Ky.; Barbara Jarrot MURRAY born in Ky.; Samuel F. MURRAY born in Ky.; George W. MURRAY born in Tennessee; Elizabeth E. MURRAY born in Ky.; and Thomas MURRAY in Ky.

On Thomas MURRAY'S death certificate, it states that his father, James MURRAY, was born in Greene County, Tennessee. Now, Greene County, Tennessee is just right next door to Washington County, Tennessee, where James MURRAY and Sarah BIRDWELL were married.

I'm looking for ANY information on this particular MURRAY or MURRY family. After John Alexander MURRAY was born in Tennessee, in 1841, this MURRAY family moved to Monroe County, Kentucky. They appear on the 1850 Monroe County, Kentucky Census. They moved a few times back and forth from Monroe Co. to Jackson and Clay Counties in Tennessee. James MURRAY disappeared off the 1870 Monroe County, Kentucky Census and Sarah is shown alone as "head of household", with several children.

Can anyone help me connect my James MURRAY (ca 1821 to ca 1870) to a Greene County, Tennessee MURRAY/MURRY family?
