I am descended from James MURDOCH who came to Australia in 1852. We know that his brothers Thomas & John & two sisters went to America. One sister married a COE, one a HAYWARD. John married but apparently had no family. Thomas was a grocer & died in Chicago in 1909, unmarried.
The parents of these were John & Jane (m.n. NICHOL), they came from Forres, Moray.
A descendant, MURDOCH COE, came to visit the Australian relatives sometime after WW2.
If anyone has any connections we would love to hear from you.
