Hello all,

Maybe someone would be so kind as to clear up some issues I keep running into...
I keep seeing this information regarding my 5th great grandparents (William Murray & Joanna Tupper), listing Williams parents as John Murray & Anne Bennett. This would have made him a younger brother to James Murray 'Loyalist', John Murray, MD (Doctor of Norwich), and older brother to Elizabeth Murray-Campbell-Smith-Innman.

But in reading through all the correspondence of these individuals (and there seems to be no shortage of it), I have found the following discrepancies...

1. This William Murray was born in Unthank, Scotland on Wednesday April 10, 1724. (sources below).
2. He sold out of the British army in 1771 in Ireland.
3. In no correspondence do I find any mention of William having been married at all.

I am hopeful that someone can shed some light on this for me. Thank you.

Fred Murray
